Its kinda crazy, but kinda genius. The management team (no longer the new guys I suppose) at Koroneburg Renaissance Festival are going virtual this year with an online renaissance festival. They hosted a virtual faire on the website last year and this year will be a bit different. This is more like a simulation game. They are building an online environment that one enters and sees the sights, shows, shops etc. Bear with my nontechnical telling of this story, its pretty cool.
So, I’m game. Am I going to be online inside the sim? Not planning on it. I’m not a video player person. Never have been. But I’m for sure a Koroneburg team player and for sure I support this new concept. It might even be a bit of fun for me.
Inside this virtual festival, the patron pays a fee to enter the sim online. There’s lots to see and do, and they can move about in the festival to check different things out. The patron can enter my virtual shop (click through a picture of my shop at Koroneburg I am thinking). There may or may not be a video of me or pictures of the inside, not sure yet. Then, by clicking on an ‘item image’ they can be linked to my online store. Pretty nifty, I think. I am tempted to attempt a Max Headroom style intro video… hehehh.. Yes, I am that old.
So, my task at this point is to gather together some of my best images and links and organize them like a shop is presented. Maybe a video too, and I’ll throw in a coupon for the webstore in case anyone clicks through to shop for real costumes. Easy peasy.
Plans are for the official start date as June 16th.We will run Wednesdays 6-10 and Saturdays 1-5 for 5 weekends from that date.
Keep in touch for more about this innovative project, and join me in an OOOfah! Well done David and the Koroneburg Online Renaissance Festival team!
