MadPea, which is probably the most well-known game studio in Second Life, recently announced that they're also going to be developing content in High Fidelity:
To date, MadPea has produced a staggering anthology of more than 80 interactive experiences in Second Life, alone. Now, it’s time to take a step into a new direction and we’re delighted to announce that we’re expanding to a new platform and joining High Fidelity’s Pioneers of VR program to produce exciting new content in VR.
The move isn't entirely surprising, as the studio has reported difficulty making major, cost-effective projects in SL. MadPea joins Blueberry, a well-known SL brand which is also shifting some focus to HF.
"We're very interested in exploring new platforms and spreading our legume legion as far as we can, but Second Life will always be our main base of operations," MadPea's Kiana Writer assures me. "We'll continue to develop, create and imagine all sorts of wicked and wonderful things for Second Life no matter if we're working in HiFi or any other virtual world."
That said, she has high goals for Philip Rosedale's new virtual world:
"We're very hopeful that High Fidelity is going to be a big hit. It has so much potential and really embraces the future of gaming with its focus on virtual reality, so we're sure to be involved in it for a long time to come."
Her advise for other content creators interested in launching in HF:
"[J]oin the forums and wander around in-world seeing what amazing creations are already there, as well as talking to the people working on them. They are all very friendly and more than happy to give you help, suggestions or tips and it will really show you what High Fidelity is all about."
For that matter, get in touch with me too, I'd love to know what you've got planned: wjamesau at gmail dot com
