THE WORLD THAT TRINGO MADE

The coolest thing about the latest news on Tringo, the game that altered the entire community of Second Life, then had the non-SL rights sold to a real life media company, and now, is coming to the Game Boy Advance from Crave, publisher of Freedom Force and Tony Hawk's Skater Pro, among many other hits?

The coolest thing is that gaming press announcements of this news credit the developer only by his Second Life name. What's more, both Planet Gamecube and Gamespot even muff that up (Kermitt Quick?), effectively creating a pseudonym from a pseudonym.

I have to wonder if the next Tringo-level phenomenon isn't somewhere to be found among the winners of the SL Game Developer Contest. (Or even, he added coyly, in the next New World Notes entry.)

"Kermitt Quick" was the name cited in the official Crave press release. That's why reporters used his Second Life name and that's they got it wrong.

Posted by: Tony Walsh at Sep 20, 2005 4:55:33 AM

My last sentence should end "...and that's why they got it wrong." :)

If I'd have checked my own blog posts about Tringo, I would have found the correct spelling of both Kermitt's SL and RL names, but instead, I relied on the press release. Live and learn, I guess.

If I ever did anything useful in SL I’d want people to know by my non SL name, in fact I find having to have a SL name that’s different from my actual one to be really annoying. Also as I use SL more just to have meetings and stuff, and its really annoying that I have to go look up people’s SL names when I know that they are there – a finder or social software layer that mapped SL name to actual name would be really useful for those like me who don’t want to be messing with all the pseudonymous malarkey.

I'm with you, Ren.

Coming to the game boy advance now? Crazy. I think it's going to be surreal in ways i've never imagined to see something created only in Second Life at a game store for sale. It's a very strange feeling indeed.

The news never stops for Hamlet! =^_^=

It's been kinda amusing scouring the web and getting the Quicks changed to Quirks.

On the topic of names, I did want to go by my biological name initially, but only half got that choice... having an accessible directory for those who want to volunteer that info would be great, altho if you want you can insert it in your own 1st Life Profile part.

Good lord... I tried to email Crave about this but the address for their webmaster—info@cravegames.com—it bounced! NOOO! :(
