You can now see Designing Worlds’ visit to Temasek, the Second Life region inspired by Singapore, on the web!

Veritas Raymaker, owner and developer of Temasek, has brought something of the history, geography and ecology, and the culture of Singapore into the virtual world. Ranging from Mangrove swamps and a fishing village to a second world war fort (complete with an aerial attack!) to Concorde and modern builds … and not forgetting a look at traditional food on the way … this is a very rich and exciting environment to explore!

To accompany yesterday’s Designing Worlds programme (which is now available on treet.tv), we have for today’s jigsaw one of the beautiful photographs of Temasek by Wildstar Beaumont that were featured on the show.

Temasek is a representation of Singapore in the virtual world of Second Life, owned and conceived by Veritas Raymaker, to give people a taste of Singapore old and new – with elements of the history, culture, geography and economy of the island state. We had great fun – and learned a lot – exploring the island. We hope that you will too!

But before you view the programme … here’s a jigsaw to tackle!
