Pick of the Day: The Subway Nightmare

The Subway Nightmare is a brand-new Hallowe’en experience created by Alfy (of the oYo brand in Sansar) and Galen (the scripting genius). It features lots of animation (as you might expect from Galen) and lots of monsters (as you might expect from Alfy)!

I’m deliberately not going to post pictures of this one (well, okay, maybe just one of the start) so as not to spoil the effect. Your first goal is to make it out of the subway. Your second goal, well…. is just to survive!

Job well done, Galen and Alfy!



Pick of the Day: Paranormal Investigation

Paranormal Investigation 11 Oct 2017

This experience is published by Abramelin Wolfe, who is perhaps best known for the Second Life brand Abranimations. You are in an old house where someone has set up special equipment and left a map with a brief handwritten note on the table:

Multiple reported sightings and sounds…History of spiritualism and occult practices.

I have visited a lot of Sansar experiences over the past three months, and I have to say that I am very impressed at what Abramelin and his team have put together! This is outstanding work, with a very spine-tingly atmosphere ratcheted up by good use of clever animations (of course, with the name Abranimations!). Rather than spoil any more of this experience, I would urge you to come venture on your own Paranormal Investigation.

Virtual Egyptology: Inara Pey Blogs a Journey in Time in Sansar

I was not able to attend this special presentation, but Inara Pey has made a full blogpost about the talk given by Egyptologist Dr. Philippe Martinez in Sansar last week, complete with links to the experiences.


I honestly don’t know what the deal is with Sansar and giraffes. It seems to be a sort of in-joke, something along the lines of Second Life and hippos (something else I also seem to have missed out on). Torley Linden has said, in answer to the question “Where are the giraffes?”:

Some of the giraffes are in upcoming scenes not yet released. There is at least one giraffe reference on a Sansar Studios avatar outfit, though.
You may have to zoom in.
Anyways, the creators in Sansar have been a pretty restive bunch of late, complaining about various new store policies, and so the artist Silas Merlin (a.k.a. Jean-François Le Saint) has created giraffes with pitchforks (available for free in the Sansar Store), used with great effect in this picture:
