So the Duran Duran party, I talked about in a previous post is still going on. Nowadays you can find a lot of avatars dancing and partying on the avalon sim still waiting for the concert and the Duran Duran island/world to come. Rivers Run Red, who are responsible for this event, now transformed their Duran Duran pavillon into some sort of club area with dance balls and Duran Duran music.
But that’s not all. Additionally there’s an answering machine standing nearby where you can listen to Nick Rhodes who is leaving message for the waiting crowd and additionally hints on the build to come. And it is a real ansaphone. Nick Rhodes leaves messages via the phone which get processed on a server and uploaded as AIFF to the parcel where you can listen to it then.
“we’re really trying to make the Duran Duran island a kinda new immersive environment, one that will tease and create game play”, Fizik Baskerville of Rivers Run Red tells me.
So check it out yourself. I met lot of nice people there and apparently they are all big Duran Duran fans. Here is the SLUrl to Avalon.
