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).

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.

Must Love Robots – Live Event – Portland, OR

Game: Must Love Robots
Type: Live Event
Location: Portland, OR
Date: July 17, 2009
Status: Completed

If you have been playing Must Love Robots and attended the special press conference held by Carol Coldoil about the new Terms of Service at RobotFriendFinder.com, you were treated to a special announcement of one of the events at the upcoming ARGFest 2009: Robot Speed Dating!

That’s right, folks! Must Love Robots is going to be having a live event at ARGFest 2009 where you can try to win the heart of a special robot someone. It had already been announced that the creators of Must Love Robots would be in attendance, but the live event was a carefully kept secret. Of course, that didn’t keep some of the ARGFest Planning Committee members from taunting some of us about a super secret announcement.

There will be a sign-up soon where you can register for the Robot Speed Date. In the meantime, may I suggest you go and register for ARGFest 2009 or at the very least check out the T-Shirt Contest. I’m quite partial to the Must Love ARGFest shirt – and not just because I designed it. It’s because you really Must Love ARGFest and Robot and Fanboy are totally awesome.

I hope to see everyone, robots and humans alike, there.

Update: The Robot Speed Dating sign up is now available at RobotFriendFinder.com. You will have to first register at RFF and then request to be added to the Robot Dating Group in order to participate in the Robot Speed Dating event. And you know you want to. You don’t want to be the only one at ARGFest on Friday who doesn’t have a robot date. You’ll feel so left out.

Update 2: Robot Speed Dating was a huge success! Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun with it. You can see what happened via either the recording of the Ustream hosted by Remix Fiction or a shorter version featuring 011ie’s revelation about Chuck at MustLoveRobots.com

Intimation – GPS Mission – US, Canada, UK, Germany

Game: Intimation
Type: GPS Mission
Location: Philadelphia, PA / San Diego, CA / Hollywood, CA / Atlanta, GA / Berlin, Germany / Vancouver, BC / Portland, OR / Chicago, IL / Miami, FL / London, UK / Los Angeles, CA / Golden Gate Park, CA / Las Vegas, NV / Toronto, ON / St. Louis, MO

Status: Incomplete

New sets of GPS Missions have gone up for the Intimation game. So far, only the Central Park mission has been completely successful in gathering all the URLs needed to unlock new game content.

In order to complete GPS missions, you need a phone with an internal GPS device or an external GPS device (Bluetooth “GPS mouse”). Nokia Symbian or Windows Mobile PPC works best. Register at GPS Mobile, download the software onto your phone, and then head out to the mission sites.

Each checkpoint you arrive at reveals a message that has a web address (Checkpoint x/n . http://thewaytheirworldended.com/…’) The address is only shown once, so be ready to copy it down so you won’t forget. Visiting the website unlocks a piece for the game.
