The Enchanted Forest Hunt
A sorcerer, dark in spirit and craft, happened upon the Princess Enid in the forest one day.
So besotted was he by her beauty and compassion he sought to keep her by his side always. To this end, one night while princess Enid slept, he crept into her bed chamber and plucked 15 hairs from her head. With each strand he pulled, he captured one of Enid's memories of her life before she met him. When Enid awoke, she found herself in a beautiful garden. She had no memory that this was not her home and when she saw the sorcerer, she had no memory that he had stolen her away in the night.
Every morning he comes to visit Enid and every evening he leaves, after spending the day basking in the glow of her kindness and love. Each evening when he leaves, he carefully replaces the lock on the garden gate. An enchanted lock he has fashioned from the strands of hair he plucked from Enid's head. A lock that has braided her lost memories together and makes it impossible for her to ever remember who she is or who might be missing her. As long as she never finds her lost memories, Enid will stay in the secret garden, locked away from her kingdom. Unable to free them from the frost that has settled over the land in her absence.
One hell of a ride
The stale smell of the air and the nearly tangible sensation of despair will make you want to turn back before even entering.
Your throat feels tight and eyes are watering, trying their best to adjust to the dustiness. Deep inside you know already that death lurks around here, yet you're mesmerized and unable to run away. The calls of dancing souls have captured your mind and you feel the sudden urge to dive in to unite with them. What you don't realize is that, I am and you are, one of them already.
Full of frights and cloaked in shadows, the Carneval stands still, frozen in time. There are whispers and scaretales of its frightening adventures, haunted rides and unparalleled mysteries. Those who seek adventure are encouraged to step right up and prepare for an experience that will leave you begging for more.
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Madness.
The Case of Praying Mary Hunt
"No bodies were found"
Legend of the Month is a series of hunts, where each month a new legend is discovered and the stories take you on interactive grid-wide adventures. This Halloween we're immersing ourselves to the story of Mary Millar, a serial killer.
Widow Millar was nicknamed 'Praying Mary' due to gruesome killings of three of her husbands and praying next to their dead bodies. Mary denied everything and claimed it was all a misunderstanding. Her motives were never understood. Once Mary was caught during her murderous act towards husband number four, she was sent to the Peatonville Asylum and was locked away in an isolated cell. The number XVIII was engraved over and over on Mary's cell, but no one has been able to figure out the meaning for it. Mary herself passed away under sinister circumstances in the Peatonville Asylum and the case went cold.
Millar's abandoned house was long closed from public until it was eventually sold to a family fairly recently. While refurbishing the house, they discovered a hidden journal underneath the planks on the floor. The journal seems to have been written by Mary herself and it desribes clearly how Mary did not only kill the three men who married her, but also the 15, who refused her proposal.
Thorough investigation confirmed that 15 men went indeed missing during the years of 1920 and 1933. The grounds of the former Millar house were turned upside down, but no bodies were found. The journal is the only clue of what has happened to these men. On each page of the journal, next to the description of the killings, Mary has drawn a cross with jibberish on it. It's believed that when someone deciphers the message, the bodies of the men can finally be found and their souls released to rest in peace.

The MadPea Circus
Where the demons roam at night
Legend tells of an island whose location and civilization was unknown to the common man. Food was scarce and the islanders were struggling.
They needed to travel further to the other islands to search of supplies. They found a mysterious island nearby, rich with food, fresh water and plants. They migrated there, building their homes. Until they stumbled across an ancient cave leading deep into the underworld. Their curiousity was fatal to them. Accidentally playing with the ancient artifacts they raised hell and opened the gate to the labyrinth. The Demons escaped and massacred the village, leaving the ground cursed and demolished, and the gate open. Most of the island was burnt to crisp.
The animals from the woods that survived, came and fed on the remains of the dead bodies. Their young were mutated into something horrible, many generations later real beasts were born, bound to the underworld. Highly intelligent and extremely demonic animals roamed the islands at certain times, searching for pure souls to feed on.
A few decades later a group of expeditioners discovered the island and were fascinated by it. It was isolated and beautiful. It had vegetation that was unheard of. They went back to collect more people to inhabit the island, building it up, eventually setting up a glorious Circus to celebrate. Not much time passed, until strange things started happening. People were disappearing, sightings of beasts were reported. They started to keep track of the things, writing it all down. They captured some terrible creatures and placed them on the freakshow in the Circus. One young woman started seeing visions, signs everywhere. She managed to convince a few followers of the evil lurking around. They created potions and spells to combat them. Those few managed to escape before Malum opened again. They passed the story on to generations, wrote more protective spells. Not many believed them, but those who did, kept the secrets and the diaries safe.
The Island was never found again. Until now...
The Kaaos Effect

Click here for the trailer video
MadPea Productions created the storyline and used subtle advertisement for the client on the theme based on communications, as well as on bonus items. The clever way of building the game in the virtual world of Second Life, using holodeck techniques saved a lot of simulation resources, keeping the location lag free and the experience therefore smooth for players. The handling of the game was done mainly via HUD (heads-up display) that stored all the information and objects needed in the game. It also handled the transition process between the time eras. All the sounds, voiceovers, building, graphics, logos, animations, interaction with website and in-world advertising was done by MadPea.

Notes from the Voyage
Created for the Nature Publishing Group and MacMillan Publishers
An educational game about the travels of Charles Darwin
The year 2009 marked two important landmarks in science; the bicentennial of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his seminal work, On The Origin of Species.

In addition to this HUD, the players also had a toolbag and compass to help them on their way to solve many fun puzzles.
The storyline and tasks were designed in close collaboration with the client. MadPea provided assistance on the general handling of the player's interface.
Interactive Chemistry, created for Sigma-Aldrich™
The Reaction game was split into 8 working stations that were spread around the several company Second Life simulators.

The game was designed to be a fun way to learn chemistry. You would receive ingredients by grinding bones to dust or taking a hammer and smashing up jewellery and glasses for example.
