Mark of the Spider-Man – Dead Drop – Nationwide


Game: Mark of the Spider-Man

Oscorp Industries has been slowly unraveling the itinerary of Dr. Richard Parker over the past week, and today is the day we can follow in his footsteps through 11 different cities. (He must have one hell of a corporate jet though if he is able to land in Boston at 1:15 and make it to Philly just 15 minutes later.)

At the time of each flight, an ‘In Transit’ message will appear as well as a link to a note that gives instructions on how to pick up whatever it is you are supposed to pick up (apparently an attaché case). When the package has been claimed, the status message will change to ‘Arrived’ and the link will disappear.

Mark of the Spider-Man – Dead Drop – Nationwide


Game: Mark of the Spider-Man
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, Seattle
Date: February 14, 2012
Status: Concluded

The Mark of the Spider-Man viral site has updated with six locations for a new series of dead drops for the movie. It appears that each city will have an associated Twitter account that will tweet out clues to several different dead drops. The first person (over 18) at each location who gives the appropriate password will receive a prize (the first Atlanta drop looks to contain two sweatshirts, a phone, plus instructions for later). Currently, new clues for each city go up 45 minutes after the previous drop was found, so plan accordingly if you’re looking to grab one of the drops.

The Human Preservation Project is having yet another round of dead drops for individuals lucky enough to have the day off on Thursday, November 17th. The countdown page is promising that this is the HPP’s biggest expedition yet, so maybe it will be more than first come, first served (but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that).

Although the countdown page doesn’t list the “rules” that were given out on previous missions, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow them in order to maximize your chances at getting one of the last remaining ice flies.

• Sign up at SurvivalCode.com
• Bring a mobile phone with you that can receive text messages.
• Be prepared for only one package available per location (first come, first served)

There’s a coordination thread over at Unfiction where if you want to plan your strategy (or just check out the competition).

Details:
• Bring a mobile phone with you (standard text messaging rates apply)
• You will need to use your online user name from TestSubjectsNeeded.com during the mission (register here in advance)
• Only one package available per location (first come, first served)

They’ve already begun coordinating on the Unfiction forums, so if you’re interested in trying to be the one lucky individual who gets to participate in your city, make sure to register at Test Subjects Needed and make yourself known on the forums.

Flynn Lives (TRON) – Finale Event – LA / New York / Chicago / SF / + ???


Game: Flynn Lives (TRON)
Type: Finale Event
Location: Los Angeles, CA / New York City, NY / Chicago, IL / San Francisco, CA / + 12 other cities
Date: December 8, 2010 / 11 am EST
Status: Incomplete

The finale of Flynn Lives is upon us. After solving the final puzzle, players were eventually taken to a countdown page with a copy of a flyer of Kevin Flynn’s book tour in 1988. It is believed that the clues to Flynn’s disappearance can be found in the cities he visited just before he vanished.

We need to summon our resources for one last push. Flynn was on to something; he was growing more paranoid by the hour during his final book tour. If we retrace his steps, maybe we can finally learn the truth.

We need an operative on the ground in every city that Flynn visited. There is more important evidence there, and we’re tracking down every shred of it.

While the countdown page says to check back for exact times and locations, with a little less than 2 days to go, there is still no new information. It’s entirely possible that the countdown is simply for the release of the information and that the finale events will happen hours (or maybe even days) later. But that hasn’t stopped people from planning out their strategy in numerous threads on the Unfiction forum. If you’re interested in trying to participate, you might want to check to see if there is going to be anyone else in your area, and definitely keep refreshing the Digital Pulse countdown page” for any new information that is released.

Dexter – Live Event – Los Angeles, CA


Game: Dexter / Serial Huntress
Type: Live Event
Location: 34° 2′ 19″ N, 118° 13′ 4″ W, near Hollenbeck Park / the abandoned Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles (Boyle Heights)
Date: Friday, August 27, 2010, in the afternoon
Status: Concluded

The players of the Dexter / Serial Huntress ARG were given a video that lead them to a new website that gave them some interesting recipes to try out.

Beef Chili To Die For
1. Brown the meat in a large skillet with vegetable oil. Add water then simmer covered for an hour until meat is tender.
2. Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add canned kidney beans, oregano, celery, onion and green pepper, then sauté for 2 minutes.
3. Add garlic-onion-flour mixture to cooked meat. Then add remaining ingredients to meat mixture. Simmer for a half hour.
4. Let soup sit and cool to about 34 °C
5. Stir for approximately 19 seconds then indulge in your meal.

Hearty Veal Roast
1. Mix together salt, pepper and cinnamon, then rub over roast.
2. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large skillet. Add onions, garlic, parsley thyme and tarragon. Mix together then set aside.
3. Use a pan large enough to hold all ingredients. Cover then bake at 118 °C for a long time – over an hour.
4. Uncover pan and continue baking for 13 minutes.
5. Transfer meat to serving platter. Skim fat from cooking juices then pour over roast.
6. Cut roast to desired serving size then, using a fork and knife, cut a small piece off. Blow for 4 seconds then taste your hearty meal.

This is my Friday afternoon special. I hope you enjoy it. And remember, using different cooking equipment may yield different results, so be sure to check-in on your meal.

Using the numbers in the recipes (degrees, minutes, seconds), the players came up with a GPS coordinate: 34° 2′ 19″ N, 118° 13′ 4″ W. This is near Hollenbeck Park in Los Angeles. It’s also right next to the abandoned Linda Vista Hospital, which is now used primarily as a filming location, which makes it an ideal setting for an event in a serial killer ARG.

The recipe says this is a “Friday afternoon special,” but doesn’t give any specific time or directions on what to do once you get there (besides checking in I guess). Seems odd for it to be so vague considering Friday is a workday, but it’s possible that more information will be forthcoming in the next 24 hours.

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.
