Second Life Creators Launch Interactive Storytelling Platform

Linden Labs, the creators of the virtual Second Life world, have created a new interactive storytelling platform called Versu.

We’ve embedded a video demonstration above, but AppNewser has all the details:

To begin, select an episode from Versu’s library or buy one from their store (there’s only three for now). The app allows you to select a character to play and the scripted narrative comes with objectives that must be completed before you move on. Each story is like a game and your character gives you an idiosyncratic perspective on stories that changes each time you play them. Users can unlock various achievements that spices up each narrative.
