Being the new guy, I’ve had a lot of fun exploring 3D Kaneva. Hidden places to find, using shift-click to speed up the decorating of my home, making my bed float in mid-air, stumbling upon sunglasses at Brian’s Accessories, getting TNT loot at the TNT Backlot … all of these have been fun to discover on my own.
But that’s only been half the fun. The rest of the pleasure comes when I get to tell someone else, even if they sometimes look at me like, “You didn’t know that?” Most of the time they’re glad to learn a new tip and go on to share their own Kaneva secrets.
This is one of my favorite parts of most games. Some writers separate gamers into different types — explorers, achievers, socializers and griefers — but really I’ve always felt we all have at least a little bit of each in us. We all like to explore at least sometimes and I know I’m still uncovering Kaneva’s secrets.
So, what is your favorite Kaneva secret? When you invite friends to Kaneva, what is the first thing you tell them about?
