Loki Eliot’s Escapades Island is celebrating five years of activities in Second Life this weekend, and the gates are being thrown wide to all, with an open invitation for people hop over and join in the fun.
Things actually got under-way on Friday, September 4th – but there is still plenty of time and lots of opportunities for people to share in the festivities.
Loki describes the celebrations as, “a weekend of events celebrating 5 years of Escapades Island, as a way to thank all those who have supported the island by helping pay the expensive tier costs and playing the silly games.”
For those unfamiliar with the Digital Mischief Maker, Loki is the developer and creator of a wide range of mesh clothing, accessories, avatars, buildings and complete packaged games, including his brilliant Battle Balloons, in which players can take to the air in steampunk inspired balloons / airships and engage in air-to-air battles – see my review for more. He’s also extremely generous of his time with others (he once created and made available an entire starship battles game simply because he wanted to give his friend Billy, a Star Trek fan, “something epic”).
Escapades Island is Loki’s in-world outlet (so to speak) for his creative flair, offering a rich diversity of activities, some of them using the very latest from the Lab – such as the relatively new Experiences capabilities, while also showcasing his own creations and offering friends and newcomers alike entertainment fun.
For the weekend, Loki has a whole range of activities planned, the schedules set out as follows (all times SLT):
Saturday, September 5th
||Battle Balloon Brawl Trophy competition – round 1: players are invited to take to the air in the Battle Balloons to fight it out and be the last one flying|
||Pirate Party with host Gemini Enfield – possible tavern brawls and a treasure hunt!|
||Pufferfish Panic! – A race around the island|
||Battle Balloon Brawl Trophy competition – round 2: players are invited to take to the air in the Battle Balloons to fight it out and be the last one flying|
Sunday, September 6th
||Goonies Beach Party|
||Rocket Hoovers Race|
||Epic Battle Brawl – location to be discovered!|
||Beach Fire Chillout – just kick-back and relax|
So, if you’re looking for something fun and different to do this weekend, why not drop in on the fun? And if you haven’t previously visited Escapades Island, this could be the perfect opportunity for you to do so.
Which just leaves me to wish a happy anniversary to Escapades – and pass warmest congratulations to Loki!
