Pick of the Day: Miner Difficulties

Miner Difficulties 15 October 2017

Galen has been busy! He says:

Jasmine and I have been working most of our waking hours this past month to bring out our best contributions to the Halloween contest. I split my time between Alfy’s (Subway Nightmare) and Jasmine’s “Miner Difficulties”:


Jasmine is a storyteller. She follows up her award-winning Through the Waterfall experience with this second story and really hits it out of the park with an excellent build and a concept that is both whimsical and blood-curdling.

I am not going to say anything about this experience (beyond posting a photo of the initial scene above) and I am going to ask you to just go and see it for yourself. Jasmine and Galen have outdone themselves here! Excellent work and excellent narrative! This is one of the best immersive Sansar experiences that I have ever visited! This is definitely a contender for Sansar’s Scariest Experience contest, the deadline of which is today.


Pick of the Day: The House of Woe

I first heard about this experience yesterday and I put it on my checklist of places to explore today. You arrive in a small, candle-lit entrance hall, where you are greeted by the butler’s voice, who welcomes you to the mysterious mansion. You pass through the doors and immediately enter into a large arched room with a grand staircase leading to the second floor. It is pouring rain outside, and the occasional flashes of lightning illuminate the dimly-lit interior.

House of Woe 14 Oct 2017

While there, I was pleased to see Inara Pey! She was also exploring the house; we were the only two people there. She and I traded notes about the secrets of the rambling old house.

She reported that, in desktop mode, some parts of the mansion were so dark that she could not navigate them. I also noticed (when I switched to desktop mode to chat with her) that the house seemed darker than in VR mode. I did find a staircase that led to the house’s basement, but it was so dark (even in the VR headset) that once I was down there, I could not find my way back upstairs and I had to re-teleport into the experience from the Sansar Atlas in order to re-orient myself.

You can pick up multiple objects in this experience (Inara told me about a book and a skull she had found, but I could not find them). Look for the hidden passageway!

Atlas Hopping Hallowe’en Special with Drax and Berry on October 13th!


Drax Halloween Special

I’m afraid I am going to miss this one outing, but it promises to be great fun! Meet at 114 Harvest at 10:00 a.m. Sansar Time/Pacific Time, and come in costume! Remember, it’s Friday the 13th!!

UPDATE 12:13 p.m.: Drax is livestreaming the event (unfortunately, you’ll have to watch it over on YouTube):

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!
