Sim Deathwatch: SL's Whimsical Town of Drowsy Gone?
It appears that Drowsy, an utterly beautiful and whimsical storybook town that was also a shopping sim for several Japanese SL clothiers, is no longer in Second Life. (Above is what it looked like in 2009, when I first blogged about it.) I can't entirely confirm this, because the sim still seems to be on the grid, but is longer accessible (at least by me.) I suspected something was amiss when I tried to unsuccessfully teleport to it today, and fashionista Sasy Scarborough said she'd heard it closed last month. Iris Ophelia investigated further, and came up with this Flickr photo below, which seems to be a farewell pic from Drowsy:
Caption reads: "Drowsy was ended. Thank you very much, everyone!" Another pic suggests (with a poorly translated caption) that the creators wanted more spare time. (But again, the Japanese-English language barrier means I might be missing something.) In any case, Drowsy doesn't seem to be accessible now, and if it's permanently inaccessible, that would be a deep loss for great content in Second Life.Tweet
