Pick of the Day: Spinnervale

Spinnervale is a wonderfully creepy new experience created by Debi Baskerville. Here’s your first look at it! Debi explains the setup:

You’ve been invited to dinner, but your hosts have mysteriously disappeared. What happened to them?

The wife seems to have gone to look for her husaband. She left a note on the farmhouse door:

You decide to go follow her, and you explore the menacing landscape.

At one point you pick up a flashlight to explore a cavern. (I was unable to pick up a flashlight using my hand controllers in my VR headset, but you can type commands in the chat text box to pick up and drop a flashlight.)

Debi did a really good job on this experience! It gave me a shiver up my spine.

Today’s scene is from the snazzy studio built by Tyler Scarborough (a.k.a. Dynamic Evolution) for the upcoming Metaverse Newscast!

Pick of the Day: Air Museum Pre

Air Museum Pre 1 28 Sept 2017

The Air Museum Pre experience is a very ambitious build by livene! It’s a grass field air museum with many, many detailed models of various aircraft from the history of aviation.

It’s wonderful to wander around among all the airplanes and helicopters and admire them, but I wish there were signs of some kind which identified the models. But it’s a small complaint. If you love flight, you’ll love this virtual air museum!
