Since 2008, the members of Ann Cudworth Projects / Alchemy Sims have built such notable projects as:
“Extending Virtual Worlds – Game-based Sim” a four region game based environment developed for the projects in the text book, “Extending Virtual Worlds”.
“Virtual World Design” a 16 region grid containing 9 project-based sims developed for the text book “Virtual World Design”.
"In Land - Search for the Sy", a game/sim involving a hunt and build challenge for the participants, designed for rapid game development and deployment in a virtual world like Second Life. (Closed 2011)
"Beach Ride” a whole sim devoted to 3d visualization and 3d data display through the use of large scale kinetic sculpture. (Closed Dec 2010)
"Particles/Alchemy” interactive Sim that tells the story of the Alchemists and sets up a treasure hunt (closed Dec 2009)
“Trees/Sundial” Region in Second Life, Second Life's only season changing Sim (Closed March 2008)
“Second Life 6th, 7th, and 8th Birthday” celebration events. We were guest designers invited to participate in the birthday celebrations of Linden Labs Second Life. Our exhibits have included 3 giant "Pop-up" books (2009), that told the visitors three original stories in text and 3-D visual presentation animations as well as "Poetry Slam" games (2010) for making many styles of poetry on the "refrigerator magnets" we provide.
Alchemy Sims is dedicated to virtual space building and creating sim designs that support your concepts and marketing goals.
Here are some comments about their work:
"The mission of the IBM Exhibition Space is to support the creation of full-scale interactive installations that make use of the special properties of virtual worlds. I was initially intrigued by the Alchemy proposal because of the high quality of the submission, which even included proposal drawings. Alchemy group met the large scale requirement without issue and their professionalism impressed me, but what made the proposal truly interesting was the inclusion of gaming and interactive elements. I look forward to joining the Search for the Sy!" - Andrew Sempere - IBM
“By being a game, Search for the Sy challenges artists in Second Life to raise the stakes in their own game.” - Dividni Shostakovich
“Second Life Search for the Sy - Spectacular!” - Honor McMillian
