Join Designing Worlds at 2pmSLT Monday 23rd November for this week’s show from the archives which goes right back to 2008, when we were still MetaMakeover, and 7Seas Fishing was a new game that was taking the grid by storm!
#023 Seven Seas Fishing 25 November 2008 from Saffia Widdershins on Vimeo.
You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo Archive channel at: https://vimeo.com/371126573. And you can join the special Watch Party (at 2pm SLT, Monday 16th November) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.
It was a very special show, as we held a fishing contest, on the waterfront at the back of our old Meta Makeover studios on Northpoint! And it was special for another reason, as it marked the first appearance of Elrik Merlin as co-host on the show!
In the first part of the show, Saffia interviewed the devisers of the wonderful 7Seas Fishing, Jen and Seven Shikami.
And in the second half of the show, we had our own fishing contest – live on TV! You can see Elrik Merlin interviewing some of the contestants – as well as Crap Mariner, a very keen fisher, achieving Hall of Fame status.
Twelve years later, Designing Worlds and Seven Seas fishing are both still going strong. You can find out all about Designing Worlds here – and Seven Seas Fishing here: http://www.7seasfishing.com/ – or you can visit their headquarters at https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Flotsam%20Beach/29/108/21/ and try 7Seas Fishing for yourselves!
And for the FIRST time in TWELVE years, we will be giving away TEN unique MetaMakeover Blue Ragged Fish at the Watch Party for the show!
