In November 2012, Salome Strangelove opened The Garden, an absorbing, immersive puzzle which is open to all to try their hand.
I reviewed The Garden as it opened last year, and for a time was a regular player, and also found myself attracted to it purely as a place in which to take pictures. In December 2012, I started working on putting together a video for The Garden, but stopped in early January with the project incomplete. Part of the reason for this is because I can’t actually do decent machinima on my current PC; I lack the skill (and hardware) for decent mouse control of the camera, and the PC / GPU has problems trying to run both FRAPS and SL side-by-side without a horrible loss of frames, even with Draw Distance down low and most bells and whistles turned off.
Anyway, for what it is worth and because I hate leaving things unfinished (they eventually all nag at me for attention), I decided to push the video through and upload it to You Tube.
As to The Garden itself, if you’ve not spent time there, I really do recommend you pay it a visit; it’s a fabulously immersive place in which to spend time – and the puzzle is quite addictive!

Inara, nice video! and definitely it was/is an addictive puzzle. in fact i hereby apologise to any and all avatars i may have smashed into, ran over or walked through on any of my solve the puzzle in new record time quests. i’m sorry.
Thank you. You went up against the clock as well, did you? I did a number of times, but kept getting defeated by the teleport-induced lock-ups with people coming / going. I’m sorely tempted again now its quieter :).
