It's A Candy Cane Christmas

Each day during the month of December (through Christmas Day) we are proud to share images on our Instagram feed from our collection of holiday décor items.

There are more than two dozen seasonal items - including nutcrackers, poinsettias, colorful ornaments and much more - in our online store, which is accessible from anywhere inside Egowall.

To locate them, just enter any living space and select the “Miscellaneous” shopping category in the Main HUD.

Last week's most popular Instagram post was one of our six beautiful Christmas stockings - the One With The Candy Cane (seen at right).

It turns out that the history of the candy cane and the origin of its association with the Christmas season are a bit unclear.

In the end that doesn't matter much.

No one can dispute how popular candy canes are - especially around Christmastime.

Even if you don't like to eat them, they look awesome hung over the branches of a Christmas tree - be it big or small.

And on a Christmas stocking, of course.

Add any or all of our holiday decor items to your seasonal collection to get into the holiday spirit.

Decorate your living space(s) with some Christmas cheer and beautify your virtual home during this most wonderful time of the year.

After you've finished creating your perfect holiday spaces, we invite you to make them public and share them with us in the comments section below.


Check out any of the resources mentioned in the post to see more just like them. And be sure to follow us on Instagram to see each new image when it is posted.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Green Steel Runner Sled

November and Thanksgiving are behind us.

December has blown in on a cold north wind - at least around here.

And you're probably in the middle putting up Christmas decorations in your home or apartment.

So let's talk about how you can similarly dress up your Egowall space(s) for the holidays.

You’ll find more than two dozen seasonal décor items - including nutcrackers, poinsettias, colorful ornaments and much more - in our store, which is accessible from anywhere in the Egowall game.

To locate them, just check the “Miscellaneous” shopping category for each available living space style.

Continuing through Christmas Day, we are posting images of these holiday décor items on our Instagram feed.

We've included a couple of them in this post to give you an idea of the beauty of these digital goods.

Add any or all of these items to your seasonal collection to get into the holiday spirit.

Decorate your living space(s) with some Christmas cheer and beautify your virtual home during this most wonderful time of the year.

After you've finished creating your perfect holiday spaces, we invite you to make them public and share them with us in the comments section below.

A New Shopping Experience

Since Egowall first came online, we have sold digital goods to users - furniture, minigames and multimedia storage objects - for placement and interaction within homes and living spaces.

Initially, the only way to purchase these items was after filtering the entire list of available objects by theme and category to locate the desired object.

Egowall Ultra Modern Shop

Then we added the ability to buy additional copies of digital goods you had placed in your own spaces or that you discovered in your connections’ spaces. This made it easier to add more of a given object to your collection or to make an impulse purchase when you saw something that you really liked.

In Egowall 3.0, we have introduced a brand new type of shopping experience – Shop in 3D.

An Egowall 3D Shop is a special type of public space set up to make digital goods of any theme and category available for sale. After entering a 3D Shop, Egowall users can buy (or gift) any displayed item. Purchased objects are immediately added to the buyer's inventory.

To access the 3D Shops, click the Shop in 3D button on the Main Display Menu (Shop Mode). The menu will switch from a theme and category-based display of available objects to show the list of available stores. You can return to the standard shopping mode by clicking the Quick Shop button.

Currently we have one 3D Shop up and running - Egowall Ultra Modern, with others soon to follow. We invite you to visit the shop and (if you're an Egowall member) add to your furniture collection. If you're not a member, you'll be given the opportunity to join Egowall while there.

Would you like to create a 3D Shop? What type of digital goods would you want to sell?

SHOP IN 3D

With this release, we have added a new wrinkle to the traditional Egowall shopping experience.

You’ll find a new button on the Main Display Menu which changes the shopping mode from a quick menu listing of furniture, game and multimedia items to a 3D experience which lets you visit shopping spaces created by other Egowall users.

The “Shop in 3D/Quick Shop” toggle button lets you quickly switch between the two modes.

LIVING SPACE EDITOR

The following functions are now available within the game for the first time:

  • Edit the name of any owned living space
  • Edit the name of any room in an owned living space
  • Make any owned living space public (i.e., searchable in Google and accessible to anyone, even non-Egowall members)
  • Set any owned living space as the default space

 

IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE

We have continued our efforts to improve and enhance the Egowall game experience for our users:

  • Automatically enter the game via the default living space after login
  • Interact with placed furniture, minigame, and photo objects while the Main Display Menu is open
  • Purchase a furniture, minigame, or multimedia object directly from the Main Display Menu
  • Move directly to a placed furniture, minigame, or photo object while Navigation Mode is enabled
  • See your own furniture, game, and media inventory while visiting a connection’s living space; however, you may not place items in that space
  • Share a living space via email or social media directly from the View icon within the space

 

With each update to Egowall, we attempt to deepen your interactions in the game and empower you to decorate and customize your living spaces in ever more meaningful ways.
