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.
