Secret Lewis – Finale Live Event – London, England

Game: Secret Lewis
Type: Finale Live Event
Location: Apollo Cinema, Lower Regent St, London, England
Date: Wednesday 10 November, 6-8pm
Status: Concluded

The Secret Lewis ARG is coming to an end. But they are having one last event which sounds like it will be the biggest one of them all. The stolen trophy is being sent via courier from Abu Dhabi to London and we are tasked with getting it back. The event is free, but you must register in advance if you plan on going.

This is your chance to be a hero.

With Lewis in Abu Dhabi, we’ve had to figure out a way of pulling off one final heist. Fortunately, we have a secret weapon: you.

It’s going to be fun, and it’s free, but you’ll need to register in advance.

First, check your diary and make sure you can be at the Apollo Cinema, Lower Regent Street, London SW1 for 6-8pm on Wednesday 10 November.

If you’re available, mail with your name, email address and contact number. You can ask for either one or two tickets, but if you ask for two, make sure you include contact details for both people. Then we’ll be in touch.

There are going to be fantastic rewards for everyone who can make it, so clear your schedule.

This finale event looks like it’s going to be a blast, so if you’re in the area, try to clear your schedule for Wednesday night. Secret Lewis has been a lot of fun over the last several months and it would be great to show it out in style.

The Innovasion – Live Event – Liverpool, England

Game: The Innovasion
Type: Live Event
Location: Liverpool, England
Date: 9 October 2010, 10.00–22.00
Cost: £5.00
Status: Concluded

The Innovasion is a new “pervasive alternate reality game” that is being run as part of the Liverpool Biennial festival.

Something is wrong at the Liverpool Biennial. Suspicious signs and mysterious codes appear from nowhere, and a sinister conspiracy is lurking in the shadows. But the good thing is: You can be part of it! Immerse yourself in a new world, find the trail, unravel the mystery, break the codes and help save the world. Your creativity is under threat. This is only the beginning.

Registration is required for the event and costs £5.00. Presumably by registering, you’ll get all the information you need to follow the events throughout the day in Liverpool.

If you are thinking about going, you might want to check out the online content of the game so that you know what you’ll be looking for throughout the live event.

Over on the Flynn Lives website, there is a countdown that will hit zero on February 24th at 11am EST. Below the countdown there is a slowly revealing list of city names. Current speculation is that things will be happening in those cities when the countdown hits zero, but it’s far too early to tell at this point in time. If you live in or near one of those cities, keep the countdown page or back here for updates within the next 5 days.


Update: So the image has completely resolved and all of the cities have been revealed. The original list posted was pretty close to what it finished up to be (the two switches were Detroit -> Denver and Indianapolis -> Minneapolis). We still don’t know what is going to be going on in those cities or exactly where things will be happening, but hopefully an update is on its way so those people who are contemplating taking off work will know if they should or not.

Something in the Sea – Live Event

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
Status: Concluded

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 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).
