I am so incredibly proud to open the MadPea Carneval tomorrow. It's crazy to think that MadPea has been creating in Second Life for over 4 years now. In the past we have been noticed because of our fresh ideas and immersive and interactive games. We have done various genres, yet one thing has been common for everything we do: The Quality. I can't emphasize enough how many hours of love, sweat, blood, passion and dedication goes into each creation. When we do something, we do it well. Naturally, this means that each time, we have to somehow try to do something even better than the previous time and with 4 years of creating.. I don't think I need to even say more...
I admit, I have pushed the team to their limits. Lured them into their dark sides and making them feel the despair the Carneval needed. We have created a place that gets under your skin. Not only it's our home, our Peapod and place for our store, our games, rides and attractions.. it's a place that pulls you back in because you have the constant feeling that something is about to happen. Maybe it's the ghosts of the freaks who were slaughtered there appearing for a revenge or maybe.. it's the feeling of hope that something good might surface after all the madness.
My deepest gratitude goes to my amazing team behind this huge adventure:
