PaleoQuest is Linden Lab’s latest adventure game in Portal Park and they have blogged about it – Brave Dinosaurs & Win Prizes in PaleoQuest! :
Magellan Linden put the moles to work building a theme park on the latest hunk of land discovered in Second Life… but something’s gone horribly wrong!
Uncover the mystery of a menacing plan and explore six exciting regions teeming with dinosaurs and valuable collectibles in PaleoQuest. The evil Dr. Talpa has mangled space and time – colliding past, present, and future into a single point in time – which happens to be at the PaleoQuest Theme Park. Are you the dashing hero the world needs to stop Dr. Talpa from taking over? The rewards are great – but so is the risk! Dare the treacherous obstacles that lay in waiting, and uncover a wealth of hidden tools and items that will aid you in your quest for fame and adventure.
Please read the blog post in full for full details about the prizes and any restrictions. Inara Pey has posted a very good blog post about PaleoQuest : Experiencing PaleoQuest, the Lab’s latest adventure in Second Life.
I haven’t yet delved deep into PaleoQuest, but I have briefly visiting the opening area. Starting in Portal Park follow the sign for PaleoQuest, go down the path, accept the experiences request and you’ll soon be on your way, complete with a funky hud that has information regarding the game.
The welcome centre has a lot of useful information, including videos that are well worth watching, I’ll embed a couple in this post, starting with the trailer for the game. Which isn’t actually in the welcome centre, but more on that later.
