Where in Second Life is a Cat Named Dim Sum? Fun Idea for an SL Blog... Great Idea for an SL-Based Tablet Game
Where's Dim Sum is a fun new SL blog with a cute premise -- each post is a screenshot of an SL location, in each of which is a tiny white cat called Dim Sum. It's a fun way to present new and/or interesting SL locations by Opal Lei, a longtime SLer who also wrote an SL-inspired e-book, conveniently enough, Love, Like Dim Sum.
Basically Where's Dim Sum turns Second Life screenshots into a hidden object mini-game, a casual sub-genre that's huge on the web and mobile right now. (Especially on tablets, which are ideal for hands-on browsing of beautiful images.) So here's a free idea for game developers:
Build a tablet-based hidden object game based around Second Life screenshots. (You can probably partner with several SL sim owners, to share assets and revenue.) SL would give you a huge repository of high quality, easy-to-export assets for thousands of game levels, and sim owners would get a new revenue stream. (And Lord knows, they can use it.)
Thanks to SL blog directory doyenne Cajsa Lilliehook for the tip.
