Richard Garriott's Ultimate Collector: Garage Sale

Portalarium announces details on Ultimate Collector: Garage Sale, the upcoming Facebook game from famed designer Richard 'Lord British' Garriott they say will "introduce a new category within the social media space, shopping and collecting."Here's a bit on the game, which should enter closed beta testing after the holidays:

A collecting game goes hand in hand with how Richard Garriott has lived his life. His home in Austin is full of unique and unusual items he’s collected over the years: shrunken heads, vampire killing kits, quack medical devices, centuries-old armor, automata mechanical toys, space artifacts, swords and scientific instruments, many of which you’ll find in the game plus a whole lot more.

In Ultimate Collector: Garage Sale, the quest to find and assemble a wide variety of fabulous collections is easy and fun. Create your avatar and your house and begin the quest for the items you want. With plenty of content to appeal to both males and females, these items might be antique radios, purple stuffed toys, home décor, books, artwork, historical weapons or just a set of tools. Items can be collected as you visit your friends’ or other players’ garage sales, estate sales, markets, pawn shops, storage units, auctions or even from national retailers who will have their own stores in the game.

Sometimes I wish Garriot would climb aboard his rocket, go out into space, and never come back...

More evidence (if you actually needed it) that the world has gone to shit.
Let me guess ... you are getting older and cant cope with the changes you experience?

And you're not... getting older that is? As far as coping I'm doing fine. Thanks for asking.

The irony? The Ad on the side bar was for Lords of Ultima... too funny.

I suspect we'll see Garriott on an episode of hoarding at some point?
Moreover, I suspect the major players in this game will have been guests/exposes on said show.

Plus the fact that two of the last three days I have visited Blue's and upon opening a comments thread I've been sent a pop up telling me my computer is infected while my antivirus program quarantines and then prompts me to remove VirTool:JS/Obfuscator.CA and Trojan:JS/Redirector.HQ. Anyone else getting this from Blue's? I sent Blue an e-mail a couple days ago but haven't seen a response.

He actually just mentioned it in tonight's Into The Black.

So this is the "Ultima-style" new game that will evolve over time into the "full in-depth Lord British experience?" LMAO.

Mr. Garriot - as a teen I thought your work was the shit. 25 years later, as an adult I have to ask - what the hell happened?

If there's one thing social games need more of, it's useless stuff to buy and collect.
