This is going to be a very strange – even for me – post. I can’t actually show you any of the things I want to talk about. There’s nothing preventing me from doing so, at least nothing other than my complete inability to make the first subjects pose properly. The second, related, subject is something I won’t actually experience until Sunday.
It all started with NAO Adagio↑. You might remember me talking about Kagami↑, the amazing Japanese Horror Event from last August. NAO was the scripter behind that huge success and I was heading to his/her store, called Toybox Entertainment↑, but wound up first on a slightly lower sky platform↑.
I kept tripping over these bizarre creatures called Krafties↑ – this is a type of breedable game. You can “kraft” your own creatures (which NAO seems to have mastered) and battle, cast spells, etc. They’re free, but extra energy for things can be purchased. They were very distracting as they popped up in this toy landscape.
Then I found this pipe thing, which a different kind of creature kept crawling around, and fell through a cloud.
Now things got really strange.
I had placed myself in a world populated by Mossms↑. It was mesmerizing! The scripting is beyond anything I’ve seen so far – particularly for breedables.
First I noticed a Mossm in a tanning bed, then saw one come over from the other side of the platform to argue about who should be using it. In the middle of food manufacturing equipment, a full gym, and more bizarre scenes, these beings seem to move around and interact at will.
Returning to my screen, after having a conversation with somebody, I realized that they’d noticed me. A few of them came over and were waving and bowing and attempting to communicate. They’re adorable – I just wish I spoke their language.
I’ve spoken about my need to avoid acquiring breedables↑, but I do on occasion willingly humiliate myself by failing at hunts.
I can’t get time to try it until Sunday. Based on the fact that NAO is scripting it, and these two participants I found outside the door, I’m looking forward to it. :)
