9/11 Memorial in Second Life – 16 years later


9/11 Memorial in Second Life

This is a special 9/11 tribute blog post.

Today we remember all those we lost 16 years ago on 9/11 where nearly 3, 000 people died in the horrible terror attacks. It was really shocking watching the live coverage of the attacks on the TV. 16 years later people are still dying from 9/11 related illnesses which is so heartbreaking.

Today we remember the victims, their families, & brave first responders who risked their lives to save others. In Second Life there is a 9/11 memorial place where you can visit and remember 9/11 with the community.

Teleport to the 9/11 Memorial in Second Life

In memory of all victims of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, 16 years ago today.

The Arcade Turns 5 in Second Life


Happy 5th Birthday 🙂

This month marks The Arcade fifth birthday since it was first opened back in 2012 in Second Life. The Arcade is now open for the September 2017 round which runs through until the end of the month.

The annual event is now the largest gacha event in Second Life and hosts 108 individual machines at the main pier.

Happy 5th Birthday

Teleport to The Arcade regions and have a great time. Here is the special 5th birthday blog post via The Arcade official website…

It’s our birthday – but the gifts are for you!

In 2012, a couple of friends bonded over their shared love of gacha in Second Life®. In September of that year, they hosted the first round of The Arcade. Since then, the event has grown into the largest gacha event in Second Life.

What’s more – it wouldn’t be a party without presents! In the center of the Arcade you’ll find a giant birthday cake festooned with gifts from many of our brands. You can have them all!

It has been our honor to serve gacha fans all over the grid for five years running.

The Arcade opens on the 1st of September. We’ll see you there!

Happy 5th Birthday – The Arcade! 🙂
