Someone decided to try to recreate the story “A Christmas Carol” in Second Life.
They didn’t do a half bad job in their attempt.
A Christmas Carol (M) attempts to bring the time period & story by Charles Dickens into a virtual world with pretty good success. This interactive sim has you clicking on various items around the sim to immerse yourself into the world that Dickens created. (They also recommend you read the book if you’re not familiar with the story. You can find it free on the internet here)
The first thing you need to do when you arrive at A Christmas Carol is to get a notecard.
GET THE NOTECARD!
It’s very important that you get it and actually read the notecard before wandering around. You can explore on your own but it’s much more fun if you follow some of the directions (link to listen to audio version while you walk, how to travel to the past/present/future, etc.) The notecard is long but it’s worth reading.
I enjoyed wandering around the interactive little village, listening to the story, & exploring. It’s not very big but it doesn’t need to be when you’re doing something so involved.
A Christmas Carol (M) is brought to you by Minty Entertainment & is open from now until January 2nd 2014. If you are lucky then you might even run into live performers.
