Blue Mars: An Opportunity to Grow Your Second Life Business


Since the open beta period for Blue Mars began I’ve noticed that some Second Life content creators have been dismissing it out-of-hand.

Avatar-Reality have just released the SDK for their virtual world, Blue Mars. They are signing up a limited number of content partners to provide compelling social spaces, entertainment experiences, and creative content. They have also announced an art competition with the aim of rewarding and promoting artists and designers with talent and vision.
