Buried: MadPea Games’ first launch for 2015

 

madpea-logo-sOn Sunday, I received word from MadPea Games Sales and Marketing Director Kess Crystal that the famous in-world game and hunt development studio will be launching their new game (and first for 2015) titled Buried on February 1st. A new gameplay element introduced in Buried is geocaching, i.e. the use of a GPS (Global Positioning System) and other navigational techniques to hide and seek objects pertinent to the game’s goal. At the time of writing, I know very little of the game’s plot – the announcement says it’s a mystery game about the disappearance of a person named Lily. MadPea promise “twists and turns”, which elevate the game from the typical “hunt” genre to a full-on adventure that places the resident-player in the centre of the action. There is also a special opening for bloggers tomorrow (January 30th), but I’m not sure I’ll be able to attend it due to RL commitments.

As is typical of hunt-like games, there are also prizes provided by various well-known SL content creators, including Livalle (Lindsey Warwick), Warm Animations, Sn@tch, et al. The announcement in full reads as follows:
