Description

On the one hand, Ms. Metaverse is an interactive, futuristic and rather tacky beauty pageant. On the other hand, it's an interesting multimedia plug for developer Virtual Vegas' casino website, VirtualVegas.com.

As a judge for the future’s biggest beauty pageant, the Ms. Metaverse contest, you decide which of ten sassy ladies wins the crown. The contestants, real-life girls filmed and digitized, introduce themselves in full motion video clips; you pick five from the pool and go on judging them in the categories looks, brains and talent. While moving between the judging pavilions in colorful rendered video sequences, you earn money by shooting the contestants – “their artificial stupidity programs could do irreparable damage to Virtual Vegas if allowed to wander around unchecked”, explains the manual. Understood.

While the Looks contest seems to be a sorry excuse to stare at pics of scantily clad women (there’s no nudity in Ms. Metaverse), it also serves to identify males and / or cyborgs which might have slipped into the contest. The Brains and Talent contests display coarse videos of the contestants dancing or performing awkward sketches with Ms. Metaverse host Monty Megabyte (Chris Bonno). Watching these performances costs money, which you earn by shooting girls (see above) or playing a simple slot machine. After you’ve reviewed all the ladies, you may crown one Ms. Metaverse.

Ms. Metaverse offers content downloads via the included Mosaic Direct Browser – see trivia section for a detailed description.

Trivia

In addition to Ms. Metaverse and Turbo Blackjack, Virtual Vegas announced two more episodes for its "continuing series of adventurescapes", both already advertised in the Ms. Metaverse manual. Assault Poker, described as a rather curious mix of Doom and 7-card stud using Criterion's Renderware engine, was scheduled for release in October 1996 but never came out. Net Casino was supposed to be a stand-alone version of the VirtualVegas.com casino games with internet connectivity. The project never even made it onto VirtualVegas.com pre-order list.
