Unfortunately, I had to miss yesterday’s Atlas Hopping with Draxtor Despres and Strawberry Singh. (I am now watching Drax’s livestream, and I am enjoying it immensely! Silas Merlin made Drax a wonderful blue dragon avatar.)
The avid atlas hoppers visited the following Sansar experiences, all except the last created by Sansar Studios, the in-house design team at Linden Lab:

Today we visited no less than six different experiences in our Atlas Hopping adventure! Unfortunately, Draxtor Despres could not join us for most of it! Drax is currently on holidays in Slovenia and he was trying to connect to Sansar using his laptop on the hotel’s wifi, and he had a very poor Internet connection.
But Strawberry was a great hostess and she led us on a tour of the following six experiences:
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!
