Congrats Kermitt!! This is very cool news.

From: Gamespot News

Second Life minigame gets second life

Crave picks up bingo-puzzle game hybrid Tringo for November release on Game Boy Advance.

Crave Entertainment announced today that it has signed the Tringo license and will be releasing the game for the Game Boy Advance in November, with a retail price of $19.99. An odd hybrid of Tetris and bingo, Tringo began its life as a simple diversion created for the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Second Life by one of its players.


While that would ordinarily make the game the property of Linden Labs, the company changed the game's terms of service shortly after launch so that users maintained intellectual property rights to their in-game creations. That was good news for Second Life resident Kermitt Quick, who created Tringo and then watched as it caught on big with the Second Life community. In fact, Tringo caught on so much that Quick sold the real-world licensing rights to it in March.

This is very cool. Unfortunately, Kermitt probably won't see another dime, since he sold the real-world rights to Tringo last spring. :o

Sweeeeeet! I haven't played much Tringo but it's fun. I dunno how it'll be playing alone though.

Kudos to Kermit.
My kids will want this as they see me playing Tringo often. :) Ah here's my chance to corrupt the next generation.

The minute somebody opens an RL Tringo parlor near my home, I swear I will kill myself and ship my rotting, disease-ridden body to Kermitt as a token of gratitude ><

Do you think they'd let you know they're resetting the board and starting a new game by leaning out the window with a bullhorn and announcing it?

Very cool for Kermit, but more importantly the future of Second Life. Having a success story that ends like this can possibly attract many talented free lance developers

So what's next? What do you think is the next business/design/software/etc that is ready to make the crossover. Are there any?
