I have not been on Gather for about a year. Seriously, I have been addicted to an online application called Greenspot by Wonderhill. It is on myspace. On Nov. 2, they announced that Kabam took over Wonderhill and are closing our app. on Dec. 2. People were devastated. But there is a group pulling together a new online game so there is hope for us hopelessly addicted to the app.
I am including some screenshots of my gardens for anyone interested in seeing how creative the app can be. The app was set up to help save the rainforest and you add to your sq ft saved by sending gifts. The gifts are used in your gardens. There was a variety of backgrounds you could purchase and stuff in a virtual store to buy to decorate your gardens.
The creativity there was amazing. There were some amazingly detailed gardens and I got alot of enjoyment from creating my not so amazing gardens. But the best part was the social interaction through the shouts and comments on people's garden homepage.
The screenshots only show the basics- alot of stuff in the gardens are animated. The windmill in the birthday garden goes around and there are some leaves drifting around the red maple and in the upper left corner of the Halloween garden. The candle flickers in the Halloween garden. Someone created a website asking for a company to acquire the rights to the app and keep it running. You can see more incredible gardens on www.savegreenspot.com
Okay posting and will try to post screenshots later since I forgot how to navigate around Gather.
