Yesterday I attended the Ozimals Strangelings preview meeting. Wow! Where do I start?
Prior to the meeting the Ozimals Orientation region was closed, so the Strangelings could be rezzed and positioned. Upon arrival in the regular meeting area it was evident that the Ozimals team had been busy. The entire meeting area had been transformed into a rocky swamp in theme with the 3 teasers which had been sent out previously (see teaser #1, teaser #2 and teaser #3). Displayed amongst the rocks were a sampling of beautifully textured Strangelings.
The first thing that caught my eye were the vibrant colors of the textures. Next I noticed all the variations of the Strangelings, at least those that were displayed. The base Strangeling will be very fox-like in appearance. However, through breeding, the Strangelings can have different attachments called Aspects. Some of those shown were Wings, Dorsal Spines, Horns, Unicorn Horn, Webbed Hind Legs, Hoofed Hind Legs, Scorpion Tail and a tail that to me looked like a Lion Tail. These definitely do not resemble any other breedable, current or past.
“With Strangelings, we really wanted to step outside the realm of realistic animals into a more fantastical place – the Aspects give breeders the ability to create pets right out of their own imaginations and we can’t wait to see what people come up with! Our development team did a fantastic job making a creature that looks very different from anything you’ve seen before, and we only displayed a few Aspects at the meeting. There’s so much more to show you, keep watching.”

If you were unable to attend the Ozimals Community Meeting Strangeling Preview you can read the meeting notes posted on the Ozimals Community Forums. There was a lot of information shared with more to come in future meetings. Speaking of future meetings, shortly after the Strangelings preview meeting was over the following notice was sent from Ozimals to their groups …
Thanks to everyone for coming out to the community meeting tonight! Apologies for the sim meltdown – we had to stop raising the limit at 70 but luckily we were able to split the group onto two sims to accomodate most of the people who wanted to attend. If you weren’t able to get to the meeting but still want to look at the Strangelings, we are leaving them out for the next 24 hours or so. Don’t forget, next week we reveal the other project we’ve been working on… Join us 6/27 at 6pm SLT for the details!
So stayed tuned into Ozimals as they reveal yet ANOTHER project next week!
