Welcome to the Game!



Welcome treasure hunters & adventurers!  


You are about to join the latest interactive grid-wide game by MadPea Productions!



You will begin on a lovely boat HERE.


Take a safe and relaxing cruise on El Guisante Loco!
Nothing can surely go wrong here, right?


INTRO:  
Ancient Incan stories whisper of a hidden cave in the remote mountains of Ecuador where a vault lay sheltered from the light of day, untouched for centuries. According to legend, the vault is filled with precious gems and unimaginable treasures that are ripe for the taking. Previous explorers have left a map that leads to the place the locals call "The Devil's Cave". Scribbled on the back of the map are notes citing encounters with horrific creatures and deadly traps that guard the cave. Many who have tried to find the treasure returned with terrible injuries, missing limbs, and some never returned at all. However, not everyone is so unfortunate, and that is why we're offering you the chance of a lifetime.

MadPea Cartographers have deciphered the cryptic treasure map for you.  This will not be an easy task, but if you survive and unlock the ancient Incan vault, you will be generously rewarded. Ready for a Treasure Hunt of a lifetime!?

The first one of you who completes this mission will be entitled to a reward of:
$10,000L 
on top of all the other prizes!


HUD GIVER


How to begin:  Purchase the HUD from the mystical crate for 100L and wear it. It will set in its correct position on your screen. Once you purchase the HUD it will ask you which viewer you are using. Make sure to select the one you are planning to use for the hunt.
You will receive free HUD updates.


We STRONGLY recommend for you to use the latest official SL viewer or latest release of Firestorm for the ultimate immersive experience of the game.


The Game HUD - It keeps track of your progress and it also has a Health Bar.
You will soon find out what the symbols mean.


Please understand that this game is a point-and-click adventure game.
That means that clicking items will give you clues to advance in the game.
Your ultimate goal is to find 15 items in grid-wide locations, 
eventually taking you to the final game play area where you will be rewarded with



HELPFUL TIPS:

- To HIDE the HUD, simply click the minus symbol on top left corner

- You must wear the hud at all times to be able to get clues and prizes.

- Allow the Windlight settings when entering the sim. It will set the atmosphere for you.

- Reduce draw distance to max 128m and turn up the sounds.

- Please remove facelights and heavily scripted objects.

- Allow the regions you enter enough time to rez, so that you can see everything clearly and not bump into random people and objects.

- The game is full of traps and puzzles. Think about your actions, you can actually die in this game. Flying and double-click teleporting is forbidden.
   
- To discuss about the game or ask for help, you can join the MadPeas group and talk in group chat. We will also post clues and happenings on our facebook page.




THE RULES

The following rules and instructions must be followed to ensure that everyone gets to have a nice gaming experience.

NO GRIEFING - the locations that you will be visiting are participating only in allowing the use of the area. The environments do not belong to MadPea Productions. Do not grief their other customers, visitors, members or residents. Do not break their posted rules.

GROUP TAG RECOMMENDED -  When you are playing we would really appreciate if you wear the MadPea Group Tag.

MALFUNCTIONS - We are aware it is Second Life which has its own issues that we can not control, such as location logouts, reboots, or lagging and crashing. We have conducted several pre-game walkthroughs to make sure the game runs smoothly where it should, but we make no complete guarantees that there will be no issues during the game.

Should anything happen beyond our control that disrupts or halts the game, we will announce it in group notices at the first possible opportunity, providing further instructions relevant to the issue.

REFRAIN FROM BAD SPORTSMANSHIP - Do not harass other players, do not instigate conflicts, and if you get stuck, no whining and complaining in group chat.
When you enter a new region, give it some time to rez before bumping into everyone else.

GROUP DIALOGUE IS ALLOWED - You are allowed to communicate in group chat and help each other out. You are however NOT allowed to give out an exact locations of items and answers to puzzles.

Please note:  Team play is allowed, however, do remember that this is a one winner for the Linden Prize. Only one player will be rewarded the $10,000L. If that player previously agreed upon a split of the reward among team members, that is at the winner's sole discretion. We at MadPea Productions will not dispute nor mediate player deals gone bad.
The Winner will receive their prize money on Monday at noon SLT, when the winner will also have an interview with Kiana and have their picture taken for our Blog and FB.



Have a blast! The game will blow you away - literally.
