Do you remember your first crush? How about your first heart break? In this special fan video, Michael22 explores a young man’s feelings and the power of friendship that ultimately blossomed into something more.

This is the first of his SocioTown fan videos, and although it is not as sophisticated as his recent videos, it is still worth a look. Enjoy this two-part special this Valentine’s Day! ♥

Michael22’s Dark Revenge (fanvideo)

Friday, January 24th, 2014

There are lots of fanvideo enthusiasts in the game, and Michael22’s one of them. Using SocioTown as his backdrop and the help of his friends as actors, here is his attempt on a darker, edgier and more serious story — the two-part video entitled Dark Revenge.

Want to know what it’s all about? Here’s what Michael22 has to say: “The name of the movie is Dark Revenge. It is about a boy (minato129) who wanted to avenge his mother who had died in the invasion that was caused by an army leader, Malcomn. The army invaded the town and everyone was killed. The survivors left the town too. After 9 years the boy grows up, he had been training to kill Malcomn and get back his town.” The two videos can be found below.

Please take note that the videos and story contain violence, violent imagery, slightly mature language and other dark elements, so young players and minors better stay away or ask for parental guidance. If you are of legal age but find the story uncomfortable and disturbing with the said elements above, please skip the videos or proceed carefully.

I would also like to note that despite it having the word “official” in its video title and description, it is not made by Outside The Box Software (OTBS) or SocioTown. This is merely a two-part fanvideo made by the players in the game. Since we here in SocioTown appreciate fan submissions, we often feature works made by dedicated players of the game. Although these two videos contain slightly mature content, the effort to make it clearly shows and we would like to give a nod to the dedicated players who made the video possible. With that said, SocioTown or OTBS do not promote violence and other dark elements present in these two videos.

If you have videos, screenshots, poems, drawings and other fan-related stuff about SocioTown, you can send them to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com. :)

Malcomn’s Boys Gone Bad 2

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

In the last video, the boys planned to wreck havoc in town as revenge for the party mishap. Will their plan succeed in this second installment? Watch the video to know how it ends! :D

Thanks to Malcomn, the creator of this short SocioTown video series, for the contribution. Any player can contribute their art, fan videos and other fan works; simply email your works to dawn@sociotown(dot)com. You’ll receive 25 SoBucks if your work gets featured here! :)

Winter Solstice Group by Aliciania

Monday, January 6th, 2014

winter-solstice-group-by-aliciania

It’s just the start of the new year and we have two fan submissions already! This one is by Aliciania, who took a lovely image of her friends during a chilly night in town. It looks like a lot of music, singing and dancing were involved. Sure looks fun! :)

The Socians in the picture are Aliciania (me), Alextechno, Malcomn, Oath, Babyshrimps, Ghippi, and Cdbooo. This photo was clicked on the first day of winter, winter solstice. We all had a blast, dancing, singing and playing our instruments. I guess this is what makes SocioTown a fun place. Welcome winter, and welcome Christmas, New Year, and so on and so forth.”

Let us welcome 2014 with a jolly mood! :D

“Boys Gone Bad” Fanvideo by Malcomn

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

Join three brothers as they fix up their act and invite themselves to a party. Will they continue to do good and promote peace in town? Or will they go back to their old ways? This is the first of a two-part fanmade video by Malcomn. It has arguments, apologies, picking up the pieces and moving on. Oh, and parties!

Three brothers who live in SocioTown are very geeky and stick to themselves. They always get into arguments and fights because of lies, jealousy, and competition. They then decide they should stop all of the drama and just be cool with each other again. They decided to go to a “Popular Teen Party” and then… Well, you’ll see.”

We look forward to the second video, Malcomn! :D

A Late Thanksgiving Jingle

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Thanksgiving has already passed, but SocioTown’s Fan Submissions welcomes creative entries any time of the year. Farhat wants to share this fun Thanksgiving jingle, even though the holiday was a week ago already. You can sing it to the tune of “I’m A Little Tea Pot”.

I’m a little turkey here to say.
Try some beef on Thanksgiving Day.
Turkey is tough, and turkey is dry.
You really should give chicken a try!
Or how ’bout a plate of veggie delight
for a Thanksgiving dinner that tastes just right?

chickendrumstick

For those who want to give chicken a try, SocioTown’s very own Chicken Drumstick is always available at Low-Mart. Low-Mart’s manager swears to keep its recipe a secret! :lol:
