Waiting for the tour to start

Today DixieChick led a small group of us on a tour of several Hallowe’en-themed regions in Sinespace. I had had no idea there were so many spooky regions to visit! (All pictures in this blogpost were taken using the in-client Snapshot feature.)

Our first stop was Gothika, a goth club where they hold dances a couple of nights a week:

Very atmospheric!

Our next stop was Castello, the Castle of Agostino, a wonderful medieval castle. The detail in the furnishings and tapestries is incredible:

Next up was Sudin, a sprawling rainy urban night-time region which I had blogged about before:

Today’s Pick of the Day is from Sinespace, it’s a sci-fi urban region called Sudin, created by Adam Frisby. Much like Sansar’s 2077 experience by C3rb3rus, it reminds me of the movie Blade Runner. There’s a suitably ominous, pulsating, futuristic soundtrack.

The glittering effect of the rain on the dark streets is quite realistic!

Next was Siden Asylum, a creepy abandoned asylum, created by Sooden Ren. You definitely could use a flashlight to explore this dark place!

Next was another asylum, Salvador Asylum, this one not so abandoned:

(One complaint I do have about the otherwise excellent Snapshot feature in Sinespace, is that there does not appear to be an option to remove your avatar from the photo! At least in Sansar, you can move your camera away from your avatar to get a different sort of shot. Sinespace needs to add this feature!)

Flooded is a game region, where your goal is to avoid being hit by a green beam from the many alien spaceships in the sky:

Next stop on the tour was TOXIC, an electronic music experience (here’s the website):

(Sinespace definitely has better particle effects right now than Sansar does; the dumpster fires are very realistic-looking!)

Apocalyptika was our final stop on the tour. a day-time post-apocalyptic urban scene, overgrown with vegetation:

Cato told me a bit more via Facebook Messenger:
