Halfway Home!

March 19, 2015 by  
Filed under News

We are at roughly that half way point for this edition of the Twisted Hunt, and if you haven’t started yet, if you have been putting it off to  let the first crowds get through – seriously, get off your butt and get hunting! There is so much to see and do and some of the stores this year will warrant the extra time investment if you are a perfectionist who MUST get every single last cube in your hot little hands.  There is also a plethora of gachas, side games, special sales and just plain “oooh, shiny!” stuff to see as well, not to mention getting through End Game.

Super quick recap for any late starters:  The cube is ectoplasm/invisateal (a kind of tealish grey) and it is translucent this time around.  The hunt theme is Spectres, so expect lots of ghostly goodness.  Joining group chat is a must – not only is it the only place for hunt clues, thanks to the cadre of hunt assistants, but it is a fantastic place to cry and moan with other hunters who can commiserate with your agony as you work through the individual stops.  The official site has all the store LMs and info about any skip/dropped stores (see the tabs at the top of the page? Participating Merchants is your friend.)

Finally, we’ve got the last batch of prize pics to share today (unless more stragglers drop off stuff on our doorstep).  What we have shown over the last couple weeks is only a drop in the bucket compared to what is out there and waiting for the brave hunter to find.  Happy Hunting, and best of luck in earning your Survivor Tags!

Cheers,
Shadowed

Never Enough Twisted!

We’re almost to the halfway point of the current Twisted Hunt and if you haven’t started yet, what are you waiting for? The 13th edition of Twisted has been one of the most exciting hunts to date – basically, if it can go wrong, it has, but the Twisted staff and the fabulous Twisted hunt family have all pulled together and worked out most of the unwanted kinks. (The wanted kinks, of course, are running amok since this IS Twisted after all!)  I will be tackling the End Game later on today and from all reports from those who have made it through already, this year’s challenge is an excellent one.

Aside from the normal hunt path, there are tons of side games and gachas to indulge your inner “ooh, shiny!” desires, as well as all kind of sales and stuff to explore.  Take your time, enjoy the stores, give a little love to the merchants who have done such a great job in feeding our Twisted addiction this time around and earn your bragging rights for the next 6 months with that pretty Twisted Survivor tag.

Happy Hunting!

Cheers,
Shadowed

But wait – we’ve posted this image before? Yes, Twisties, we have.  However, there has been a second prize cube added to Xtreme Designs and the gag order on showing exactly what it is still remains in effect.  So, if you really want to know (and you know from past experience that it will be something good), you will have to hunt it down!

More from Twisted 13!

We’re back with another update on the 13th Bi-Annual Twisted Hunt!  First and foremost, the End Game is now up and running for those of you who are ready to face the final challenge.  I have yet to do it myself, but I hear it is amazing.  And, of course, should you take the challenge, survive to the end and make it to the final room, there is a whole host of gifts, gachas, the Survivor wall and your Twisted Survivor tags waiting for you.

We’ve got another look at some of the great prizes out there on the hunt path – there will be a couple more posts, but we’ve slowed down the pace a bit and will be posting as we hunt.

Also…and please don’t shoot the messenger…for those of you who have conquored stop 15, X-treme Designs? I hear a second prize cube has been put out, if you are brave enough to give it a shot.

Happy Hunting!

Cheers,
Shadowed

We’ve been showing off all kinds of ghosty goodies from the 13th bi-annual Twisted Hunt over the past week or so and we do have one more peek at stuff to share with you today.  This is the last of the blogger submissions, which means any further posts will be stuffs that I actually hunted/shopped for (unless more blogger packs get delivered!), so in addition to sneaky little cubes scattered across the grid, keep your eyes open for a sneaky blogger-type ninja person lurking about!  =)

Also, just as a side note, keep in mind that there is both a Friday the 13th and April Fool’s Day included in dates of this particular edition of Twisted.  There is a distinct possibility that some of the merchants might possibly maybe be making “special” plans for the Twisted folks for those dates.  Even if you have made it through all the currently available stores, keep an eye on Twisted chat for more info and updates – if they have a special brand of evilness planned, you don’t want to miss out!  Happy Hunting!

Cheers,
Shadowed

Ghouls and Ghosts and Translucent Cubes, oh my!

Gonna keep this short and sweet, Twisties – the cubes are out there, go get them! Here’s a little more of the fantastic treasure trove of goodies you can find while you are out and about working through the various store locations. Please do join the Twisted group if you haven’t already – they are the best place to find the most up-to-date information about the stores, skips, Endgame and they are the ONLY source for hints to where those devious cubes are hiding out.

Cheers,

We are a few days in to this month’s Twisted hunt, and the little cubes are proving to be even more devious than ever before.  With their shiny translucent shells and amorphous tealish grey color that blends into almost everything,  they have spread out across the grid and are causing more tears and hair pulling than any of the previous Twisted hunts in recent history.  As of my last log-in to SL, there were still a couple of skip spots where RL was holding merchants hostage from getting their cubes set up, so if you are venturing out on the hunt path today, be sure to check in on the website’s list of participating merchants or with the good folks holding down the fort in the Twisted group chat for the latest updates and newest information.

We’ve got another peek at some of the goodies you will find as you work through the various locations, but keep in mind that what we get to show here in the blog is only a fraction of the stuff out there – we can’t show everything, its more fun leaving unexpected surprises along the way.  Happy Hunting!

Cheers,

Weekend Wrap-up, Twisted Style

March 8, 2015 by

There is no rest for the wicked, and that includes evil little cubes and yours truly.  I’ve got another look at some of the delightfully spectral things you can find in this edition of the Twisted Hunt.  As a quick recap for anyone who has been living under a rock and missed the hunt start:

1. The hunt started late, so it will be running late (March 5th to April 5th).  This means the hunt encompasses St. Patrick’s day, Friday the 13th, and April Fool’s Day, as well as being the 13th edition of Twisted – so beware! Strange things are afoot…

2. The official theme is Spectres – ghosts, ghoulies, things that go bump in the night.  The official color is Ectoplasm, aka invisateal, aka tealish-grey.  The cubes are especially ferocious this time, as they are translucent.  That’s right – all those threats to make them invisible? It’s happened!

3. The Twisted group is as active and helpful as ever – that’s the place to be for hints, conversation, and general mayhem as you work through the 80+ stores on the hunt path. You can also get the latest info on the End Game status and updates in the couple of stores having RL issues.

Happy hunting!

Cheers,
Shadowed

Twisting Time

March 8, 2015 by

The weekend is half way over, but the cubes are still holding their own in the bi-annual Twisted Hunt currently infesting SL.   Eyes are melting, teeth are gnashing, hair is being torn out, and there have been actual tears.  In other words, all is right in the Twisted world.  Those of you who are embarking on your first venture into Twisted or those who have not yet mustered the necessary level of mental breakdown to attempt it might be wondering why so many hunters subject themselves to this fantastic torture twice a year.  Honestly? We have no idea. They must be suckers for punishment.  And, as long as they are willing to take it, the Twisted merchants are willing to dole it out.  Painfully.  The payoff, though, comes in the absolute truckload of goodies for those who persevere and conquer the cubes from shop to shop, side game to side game, and eventually face down and beat the End Game.  The fact that you get to sport that nifty little “Twisted Survivor” tag at the end, complete with bragging rights, is pretty good incentive too.

We are continuing our own mission of enticement with another look at some of the fabulous prizes, extras, gachas and whatnot you can find along the way as you take on the challenge of Twisted.  Good luck and Happy Hunting!

Cheers,
Shadowed

Good Morning, Twisties!

March 7, 2015 by

My apologies in advance, Twisted Folk – I normally post at night, in the dark, after many cups of coffee and various liquids have had time to saturate my blood stream and turn me into something resembling a human. This post, however, is being made during my first cup of coffee of the day and during the daylight – honest, there is actual real sunshine coming through the window and creeping across the floor towards my desk! So I am going to make this short and quick, then run for the nearest dark shelter and hook up my caffeine IV. Hints, commiseration and general merriment abound in group chat, so be sure to join up and join in while you are out hunting. The Participating Merchants  page of the website has all the stores, all the LMs available to you as well, in case you get stuck somewhere and need to move ahead to the next stop to give your brain a rest for a bit.

Here is another peek at some of the fabulous reasons why you torture yourself twice a year chasing those evil little cubes. Happy Hunting!

Cheers,
Shadowed

Have you had your Twisted fix today?

We’re back with another installment of the delightful Twisted hunt prize peek. Latest update to the hunt is that #3 and #21, MV and Arcadia respectively, is now fully cubed and ready to go, so take a deep breath, a little shot of something and head on over! There are tons of side hunts, extras, gachas and more to find along the way, so if chasing the cubes gets a little overwhelming, slow it down and take some time to poke around the shops – the merchants have done a stellar job of providing lots to do this time around.

On a side note, I heard a rumor that there may be a chance for an elusive sighting of the rare Twisted Blogger along the hunt path tonight, so if you happen to spot one, be sure to say hi! =)

Cheers,
Shadowed
