Kiana's Interview - The Drax Files: World Makers

The Drax Files: World Makers 

[ Episode 8: MadPea Games] 

The debate if SecondLife is a game or not is alive and well since on NBC's The Office from 2007 Dwight Schrute rejects a narrow definition of the vast virtual world in which he "plays" a paper salesman.

Meanwhile, Finland based design company MadPea Games has not been paying much attention to this back and forth, instead churning out complex immersive adventure games and game-based learning concepts within SecondLife using the platform's vast array of tools to the fullest.

MadPea's globally dispersed team operates as if they are working out of a joint because the persistent universe of SL allows them to do just that: scripters from Holland manipulate game mechanics with 3D modelers from the United States in real-time while designers from Germany, France and the UK test game flow on their new work-in-progress action game "Unia", disproving assumptions that only consoles can handle intense game-play, high-end graphics and epic storylines.

The Silent Peacock holds many secrets and the biggest of them all is Room 326. 15 people are missing after spending a night in that room. No one knows what happened to those poor souls, even the local police has been left clueless.

SLB10 - A 5 Year Look at MadPeas



 There is a saying when growing a garden or flowers that the more love and time you give with your plant it will grow and become full, vibrant and to its best potential. There is no greater truth than with MadPea Productions. 

The wonders of Second Life allows any person to bring forth their dreams, wishes and ambitions to life with the click of a button. We all would not be where we are today if it was not for the one mind of a single woman with a brain crammed of stories and imagination. Kiana Writer wanted to make her dreams and nightmares come to life. Second Life was the canvas and MadPeas was the paint and brush to create. 

Through the 5 years of adaptation MadPeas has gone through many changes and has bestowed the Second Life grid with some of the most amazing hunts, games, puzzles and interactive adventures. MadPeas has strived to continue to push the envelope and be the first to see what Second Life's real potential and ability had to hold underneath all of its many layers of possibility. 

MadPeas is celebrating with Second Life it's 10th Birthday of existence and the theme of Looking Forward, Looking Back. We have built an amazing display with hats (designed and built by Madcow Cosmos) that go to the sky for visitors to go take a look at and see through the years what MadPeas has been here and how we have evolved. As you start to climb your way from the bottom hat and move up the creaky ladder you are invited to click the framed posters of the games of the past that we have created. Some of them even have the original teaser/promo video for that game when it was created. You have to truly watch every one of these videos and see even as the videos become more in depth with design, creativity and love. It is easy to see with every game we learned, we adapted and we moved another step forward. 

MadPeas has been a labor of love for years and the admiration and following of the group behind it has been the true heartbeat as to why it keeps doing what we do. If there was never any following behind it, the desire to create at times feels a bit less desirable. But the Peas out there, our followers continue to anxiously wait for every game and puzzle and event that we come up with. We love everyone of the new visitors that come in and see us the first time and get hooked as much as those that have been on this ride with us since day one. Through thick and thin the family we have inside the crew and outside with the group MadPeas has grown to be one of the biggest and widely known gaming groups on the grid. We thank every single person that has ever helped us, planned a game with us or merely played one of our games or attended an event. We would never have made 5 years if it was not for all of you. 

We thank you all for making these 5 years something truly to remember with the memories, friends and true bonds between so many different types, styles and personalities of people. We look to the next 5 years and continue to make every new experience just like it was the first time you found MadPeas.
Thank you to everyone of you.

SLURL: Second Pride in Second Life

Feed a Smile Fundraiser

 Madpea loves to give happiness and joy to the people of Second life.
It is one of the goals that we stive and continually keep to bring with each new
game, event or fundraiser that we hold or are included in.

This May we were happy to help and be part of  a fundraiser called "Feed a Smile" that was the feeding program for its main charity organization called Live and Learn in Kenya NGO (LLK) and daughter organization Live and Learn in Kenya International NGO.

Desolation, hunger and thirst, poverty beyond comprehension, illiteracy, AIDS, child prostitution, child brides - this is what rules the lives of the people -  especially the children living within the Rhonda Slums of Nakuru, Kenya.

Live and Learn in Kenya finds sponsors to finance the education of needy children, which includes everything that the child needs in order to go to school
fees, uniform, shoes, textbooks, school supplies.

They provide medical/dental care to all LLK-children — including check-ups and vaccinations.
Their feeding program is also a huge success. With their "Feed a Smile" project they are able to assure nutritious warm lunches for over 400 children every day. All funds are donations.

100% of the donations are transferred directly to Kenya to care for the children, provide education, medicine, food, shelter and foster care. Nobody is earning a cent at Live and Learn in Kenya NGO. The professional staff in Kenya are paid through donations in order to insure the smooth running of the project - so that the children receive all that they should.

Here are some pictures of the live acts that contributed to the
Feed a Smile fundraiser in Second Life at the MadPea Base

The fundraiser was a great success with peas and new visitors coming to the
sim and donating and  enjoying a nice evening with the live acts that helped to make this fundraiser. 

MadPeas was extremely happy to be part of this amazing charity 
and awesome fundraiser to help those kids in need in Kenya.

Here are the smiles we were able to make possible.

We want to thank Live and Learn in Kenya for the opportunity in being able to help with this amazing charity and wish them the best of luck with all they do.
