Woah. This trailer for Remnants of Earth is about as Second Life as you can get, but still—it’s an MMO inside of an MMO, and it looks bonkers.

Via New World Notes, Remnants of Earth is a cyberpunk game within Second Life. The developers explain:

[Remnants of Earth has a] heavy basis around classic pen and paper RPGs elements, like; dice rolling, stats, monster fighting, story driven events, MMO-like adventuring, and gathering. RoE is the first second life pen and paper table top game in SL, while still keeping the core features of any other roleplay sim. Players can interact with NPCs and other players to accomplish goals, and even engage in heated PvP faction wars. We even have a full crafting and mining system! Think of RoE as a fully functioning table top game in SL, like Dungeons and Dragons, or ShadowRun.

Story time!

I remember one lunch period at my last job where I was in the break room, alone, just eating a sandwich and drinking some coffee, when the janitor came in to have a chat - nothing out of the ordinary.

“Have you ever played Second Life?”
“I- uh- no, but I’ve heard of it.”

Genuinely never played the game, but back when I was in high school I had heard some mentions of it, nothing that ever wanted me to take a look, and this conversation didn’t help.

“Yeah it’s really cool, it’s like actually having another life and interacting with people. It helps you feel less lonely, you know, if that’s something you deal with.”

At this point I kind of felt bad for her, so I was going to chip in with something along the lines of “yeah we all have our little escapes” or “it gets better” or some nonsense to end the conversation.

I didn’t get the chance to. Her face lit up with a smile and she goes on to explain...

“Yeah you can even have sex in the game! I mean, it’s not real sex but you get to have that moment with someone and I like it, it’s all computer and everything but watching them go at it is hot.”

I’m not sure how many of you have had a 60 year old woman tell you, while you’re eating lunch, that watching digital avatars have sex is hot, but I can’t recommend the experience. That memory will always be burned in my head and I don’t think I’d ever touch or look at a Second Life anything because of it.
