Bogon Build, East of Odyssey. A fun-time build to check out.

Today, we get to play in the extraordinary build, created by blott Epsilon and Cutea Benelli. It’s a giant, self-building “city” that grows, decays and then rebuilds itself in a random manner. The texturing is great and there’s a lot of fun around this build. Lots of nooks and crannies for any photographer wanting to practice speed shooting, ’cause you never know when it’s going to fall apart on you! I recommend this as a totally fun build to check out. As we were there, the builder showed up. I just had to pounce on take the occasion to speak with him. Transcript as follows.

Bogon build, East of Odysey! A really fun must-see!

[13:56] Marisino Mosuke: It all disintegrated

[13:56] Marisino Mosuke: Rebuilding now

[13:57] Jaco Schaffner shouts: the eye stalk is looking at me

[13:57] Marisino Mosuke shouts: Face?

[13:58] Quite Oh shouts: Did you miss the big mouth with huge teeth and a tongue?

[13:59] Jaco Schaffner shouts: it’s alive!

[14:01] Jaco Schaffner: Maris the builder is here

[14:01] Quite Oh shouts: JUMP HIM! HERE’S HERE
