Game: Something in the Sea
Type: Live Event
Location: Australia / Germany / Italy / Netherlands / France / England / Spain / Long Island / Vancouver / Santa Monica
Date: August 8, 2009
Something in the Sea, the campaign for BioShock2, wants everyone to go to one of 10 beaches around the world this Saturday morning. Two memos and a map have appeared on SomethingInTheSea.com that tell when and where something will be happening this Saturday.
As far as I can determine, these are the coordinates – in the order of sunrise on August 8th. According to what I have learned, the tides may carry in valuable information at approx. sunrise at these times.
6:41 AM Bondi Beach (Sydney, Australia) 33° 53′S 151° 16′E
5:43 AM Travemunde (Baltic Beach – Lubeck, Germany) 53° 57′N 10° 52′E
6:03 AM Rimini Beach (Italy) 44° 4′N 12° 34′E
6:15 AM Scheveningen Beach (The Hague, Netherlands) 52° 7′N 4° 17′E
6:28 AM Bay of Angels (Nice, France) 43° 41′N 7° 15′E
5:37 AM Brighton Beach (England) 50° 49′N 0° 8′W
6:54 AM Barceloneta Beach (Spain) 41° 22′N 2° 11′E
5:58 AM Jones Beach (New York, U.S.) 40° 35′N 73° 30′W
5:55 AM Kitsilano Beach (Vancouver, Can.) 49° 16′N 123° 9′W
6:11 AM Santa Monica (California, U.S.) 34° 0′N 118° 29′W
The buzz in the Unfiction forums seems to be that there will be swag to be had at the locations, along with possible character meets, so you should have a pretty good time if you go, despite it occurring way to early in the morning. If you can, take pictures and/or video of what happens so that the people who are unable to go can live vicariously through you. And if you’re attending the Jones Beach event, say hi to my friend Siege (if he goes, that is).
Thanks to Limer in IRC for telling me about this event.
