(Click here if the video fails to load)
The latest Drax Files video from Draxtor Despress, from June 5, "What drives a molecular biologist and house-husband to abandon academia and instead run a thrift store in a virtual world and invent a successful air combat game franchise in there? Meet [flying?] Dutchman Arduenn Schwartzmann, self-taught 3D content creator and self-described jack-of-all-trades, equally admired by his 4 kids, their peers and SL residents the world over.
"With over 400 'useless' [his term!] items for sale in the Metaverse and countless collaborative projects - with game designers MadPea Productions among many others - his body of work speaks for itself. This overdue episode of Drax Files gives us a rare glimpse behind the scenes of this creative genius, examines his workflow and premieres a very special limited edition Draxtor WarBug.
"The video does not however answer the most pressing question of all: are over 50% of Second Life residents Dutch and if so: what does it mean?
