Today’s Pick of the Day is one of the original experiences crafted by Sansar Studios, called Colossus Rising. Surprisingly, it’s not listed up near the top of the Sansar Atlas listings, among Linden Lab’s featured experiences! You must scroll pretty much all the way to the bottom of the Atlas to find this one, but it’s worth looking for! This experience reminds me of the famous classic Cyan puzzle games Myst and Riven, so if you loved playing those, you’ll love Colossus Rising.
You are transported to a rocky, barren desert landscape. The wind whistles past you, and red dust fills the air, as you explore the remains of a mysteriously abandoned civilization. Everywhere there is the clank and hum of machinery; you see large canvas windmills and gigantic metal gears turning. You climb the wooden ramps and scaffolding, carefully balance your way across a long, narrow beam strung high above the ground, and jump onto the automated gondolas that move back and forth between raised platforms. Tusks, bleached bones, and the discarded armour of giants litter the landscape.
Come, restless wanderer, and puzzle over what happened here. In my opinion, this is still one of the best experiences in Sansar. Well worth a visit!
