Join us today, Monday 3rd March at 2pm at the Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams for a special viewing party of today’s Designing Worlds show as we pay a final visit to the beautiful dieselpunk region of Seraph City.

Sadly, a few days after we filmed here, the owner announced his intention of converting the sim into a private region. Already the name has been changed and many of the iconic buildings have gone (including the Hawkesmoor Apartment buildings which we visit). Obviously, we had no idea that this was going to happen when we filmed the show - and nor did the Estate Manager, Edward Pearse, who was our escort.

 We thought long and hard about broadcasting this, but decided to go ahead, even though the show is now more an elegy to Seraph City than an invitation to become part of a community.

We tour some of the beautiful builds in the city - and also talk about how episodes of The Blackened Mirror were filmed there - and were the basis of some popular games during the first season of the show.

So … do join us at 2pm for a show that is definitely, sadly, a last chance to see.

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on Aview TV or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds – or on the Designing Worlds blog – our very own version of the iPlayer!
