Today’s post isn’t really Second Life related, but I figured I’d blog about it since I did a few months back when they were introduced inworld, and also because I am having so much fun playing it on Facebook right now! 😀
Back in November I did a post about the Strangelings. For a quick recap, Strangelings is a real world game of a genetics based pet design where players have 3D pets which breed and produce offspring with unique traits based on genetics. The brilliant team behind Ozimals has teamed up with two former Lindens and a financial expert to form Flying Monkey Interactive, Inc. The team at FMI have been developing the product platform called Toto for several months now and Strangelings is their first game.
Strangelings finally went live to the public yesterday. I’ve been playing it on the web and learning more about it slowly. You can login through facebook and play the web-based version of this game. It is also available for download on iTunes. An android version is in the pipelines and I’m really hoping it’ll be out soon because I’m having a lot of fun with it. I’ve shared a couple of pictures on my Facebook as well, here’s one of me showing off my purple tiger.
I’ve already breeded mine a bunch of times and had many babies and now trying to learn about all the genetics and how to breed some cool looking strangelings. Once I do that, I’m looking forward to participate in the Auction House and possibly make some real money in the process! The Auction House is in beta right now, but should be going live soon.
You can also friend me on Facebook if you want to see my progress. I’m sure I’ll be sharing lots more pictures of the game in the future. Let’s get breeding!
