Lily’s husband, Joshua Morano is offering a $500 000US reward for the first one to find his loving wife. The race is on as people are pouring in to the island of Pierus that used to be a popular camping ground. Grab yourself a boat and explore the group of islands owned by Lily and Joshua to find clues about what might have happened to Lily. Once you find enough information you will start a grid-wide search that will drive you to the edge of frustration.

Please understand that this game is 
a point-and-click adventure. 
Clicking on items will give you clues 
to advance in the game. 
So click click click on everything
you find and think is relevant!

Make sure to pay attention in nearby 
chat for instructions and clues/hints.


Few important tips:

  • The game has voiceovers: Make sure to have your sounds enabled to hear them. 
  • Give locations time to rez before you start searching.
  • The main island can hold only 20 people at a time. If it’s full, please wait a few minutes and try again. Also, please don’t leave yourself afk on the island to allow others a chance to come in and play.
  • There are no verbal clues. All clues for advancing in the game are given visually.

ATTENTION! 

The storyline is disturbing and
might be shocking for sensitive players.

NO HUD REFUNDS. 

Please read the following rules before starting.



BURIED RULES: 


1. 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. 



2. GROUP TAG RECOMMENDED 

When you are hunting, we would really appreciate it if you 
wore the MadPea Group Tag. 



3. NO LITTERING 

Unless otherwise instructed to do so, do not rez or lay any objects 
from your inventory on any of the locations you will visit in the game. 



4. TEAM PLAY 

Is allowed and even recommended. Many of our players have made
new friends or even found their partners during our games. 


5. GAME TIME

Will be set according to Second Life time, regardless of the player's locale. 



6. 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 hunt runs smoothly where it should,
but we make no complete guarantees that there 
will be no issues during the hunt. 

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



7. 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. 




8. 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 direct answers and slurls.



9. PRIZES

You are only eligible for the 25 final prizes when you have
successfully completed the whole game. 




10. BANNED?

MadPea is not responsible if you are or get yourself banned 
from a store/region and are not able to complete the hunt. 


Please check the list of the participating stores before beginning
to make sure this is not an issue.




For more information, please contact Tichelle Teebrook.

  1. I just entered the game and did buy the HUD.
    It was very confusing and limited in help outside of the groupchat.

    I would like to see a "example" clue or something, so you have a "feel" for what to look.
    Now it's just Here is your HUD, GL with it.

  2. I just don't get it. I'm supposed to search an entire land region, with only a sketchy picture to help me? C'mon, Mad Pea, you're better than this. I love you guys, but so far, this adventure sucks.

  4. This map sketching is super hard to understand, it doesn't exactly tell me where to go...I feel like I have been wondering around for an hour just trying to locate spots on the map....ugh starting to feel like a waste.

  5. The map was awful, the voice overs were ... well, the female voice was good, but the male voice was nasally and unintelligible at times. Also, digging for the prizes was a waste and I didn't bother with it. This hunt was clever at the drawing board, but failed at the execution. 3/5 stars.
