How To Play

Your friends have lured you for a ‘fun night out’ at the old Southern State Penitentiary that’s been known as the Ghostly Gaol as long as anyone can remember. They host weekly Ghost Tours that are rated 5 stars and even though you don’t believe in supernatural events, you have an instant bad feeling about this outing. The gray and grim structure was once home to the State’s most disturbed criminals and allegedly thousands of prisoners died inside. The restless spirits wander the empty corridors and some visitors claim to have heard voices and seen objects move and doors being slammed. Your tour guide, a pocket sized chirpy lady called Roxy insists that the ghosts love all tour guides and their guests and assures everyone’s safety. As you gather in small groups, Roxy promises to deliver a spine trembling and hair raising tour in one of the world’s most haunted prisons.
Make sure you have the latest update for your Second Life viewer of choice, and enable “Shared Environment” for the best game experience!
