GAMING THE SYSTEM...

By happy coincidence, I just got back from the largest game expo in the world to find Second Life's own gaming expo already in full swing, in-world. The nominees in Second Life Game Developer's Competition opened their projects to the public on May 9th, and for the next several weeks, each will be vying to win a bevy of in-world and real world prizes, from Linden Lab. (Details on the competition here.) Over the following two weeks, I'll be stopping by each entry and giving them a try-- and in doing so, hopefully give NWN readers a glimpse of the state of in-world game development.

(And to maintain a modicum of journalistic impartiality, I'll state right up front that none of
my entries on the competition should be construed as an endorsement or a criticism of any
particular game. Those, good readers, are for the residents themselves to make-- and for
me to only report on.)
