This voluptuous woman goes by the name of Padea and her digital likeness resides inside Erotasy Island, a multiplayer adult game scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2008, according to the Web site. The virtual version of Padea functions as a personal digital assistant meant to lend a helping hand to users in-game. Players, I think, can select their own PDAs after they are greeted and initially shown around by Padea, or if they are really smitten by her, they can keep her around.
That’s about all I bothered to find out. You can investigate the Web site for further details. I just wanted to post an image of the lovely real-life Padea because she was so nice to look at as our greeter girl here at the Sex in Video Games Conference. I mean, you can only stare at conference panelists for so long before your eyes yearn for a break.
In other news, Ren Reynolds dropped a wake-up bomb today after he criticized the very panel he was on, which focused on the issue of morals and ethics in adult-related video games and MMOs. As panelists responded to the moderator’s questions, one inquiry prompted Reynolds to voice objection to the fact that the panel’s discussion was being framed around American law. Indeed, as far as I know, everyone in the group was from the states except for him.
Reynolds, who hails from the UK, reminded everyone that virtual worlds and video games and MMOs attract inhabitants and users from all over the globe, not just the U.S., and different countries have different laws on the books and different mores. Reynolds’ comments were handled well and with good-natured humor, and as far as I was concerned, it was a point well taken.
UPDATE: I just noticed I wrote “digital likness” instead of “digital likeness” in reference to Padea in the first paragraph. Sounds like a Freudian thing. Also, I am looking forward to getting home and going through my notes so I could make a wrap-up post or two on the conference. I have some stuff that I’d definitely like to share.
