Buried from MadPea Games is an interactive experience that takes place on several locations across the Second Life grid. The best place to start is of course the starting location, which isn’t yet open to mere mortals, fortunately I managed to sneak in a get a preview.
Whereas I’m not in a position to give the game a full review, I can provide some insight into the game. The starting location is where you get your HUD and start your progress. As in most MadPea games the HUD is important and therefore it’s good to know what it does and how it’s used.
Clicking the ? in the top right hand corner of the HUD helps you to understand the HUD and what you can do with it. The view will change depending upon what you’re doing, sometimes text will appear there, for example. The basic controls allow you to go to Buried Island, get help, which comes via the MadPea website at the moment. There’s an option to join the MadPea group, which will also be a good place to discuss the game. Then there’s the option to go to MadPea’s Facebook page and finally an option to listen to a funky youTube stream whilst playing the game.
However be warned, the game does at times require you to listen to something that is happening inworld via interactions via objects.
The game is linear to a degree, locations need to be unlocked by finding clues in your current location. Available locations are marked with an X. Simply click the x for an available location and you should be teleported there.
There’s also a souvenir shop at the main starting location, which will sell souvenirs but may also have items that will assist you in your quest.
