Flynn Lives (TRON) – Finale Event – NYC / Toronto


Game: Flynn Lives (TRON)
Type: Finale Event
Location: New York City, NY / Toronto, Ontario
Date: December 8, 2010
Status: Completed

The finale event is here, with the first two cities unlocked. It appears as if there will be the same set of instructions for everything.

  • Get to the above location immediately, and bring a phone that can send and receive calls (does not have to be a Flynn Lives phone).
  • Find the TRON sticker and call the phone number printed on its face.
  • Stay at the location and wait for further instructions – Flynn Lives will let you know when the mission is complete.
  • Only the first person to find and call the phone number will unlock the drop and get the final meet-up instructions.
  • Be diligent. Stay safe. And good luck.

NYC location: 40.73595, -73.99801 — Claimed

Toronto location: 43.65273, -79.39095 — Claimed

I do think it’s a bit of a shame that only the first person at each location gets a prize. Is it really too much to provide smaller consolation prizes for people who take the time to show up for an event in the middle of a work day?

Animism – Dead Drop – Toronto, ON


Game: Animism
Type: Dead Drop
Location: University of Toronto Hart House Library, Toronto, ON
Date: Dropped September 12, 2010
Status: Concluded

There appears to be a second library dead drop for the Animism game.

Declan believes we need to check out the book/s in the photo, especially “The Polar Sea Journey”.

This comment from Stephen on Declan’s blog gives us a location to check for the book/s:

I’ve conferred with a few colleagues sir–they’re saying they’re certain the library is the U of T Hart House library!

No one has picked up the Vancouver drop yet, so if you have any Canadian friends in either area, let them know that you need their help.

Thanks to @enaxor for giving me the heads up.

Tron – Worldwide


Game: Tron (Flynn Lives)
Type: Possible Live Event
Location: Sydney, Australia / Denver, CO / Madrid, Spain / Paris, France / Boston, MA / Washington, DC / Orlando, FL / Atlanta, GA / Raleigh, NC / San Diego, CA / New York City, NY / Philadelphia, PA / Toronto, Ontario / Austin, TX / Minneapolis, MN / Nashville, TN / Chicago, IL / Salt Lake City, UT / Los Angeles, CA / San Francisco, CA / Portland, OR / Seattle, WA / Las Vegas, NV / Phoenix, AZ / London, England
Date: Possibly February 24, 2010 at 11am EST
Status: Concluded

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.

Location: Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Washington DC, Buenos Aires, Cork, Toronto, Kinderdijk, Beijing, Cankurtaran, Sao Paulo
Date: Placed before December 10, 2009
Status: Concluded

Maya, from 100 years in the future, seems to have found some friends in our time to leave a series of symbols scattered around the globe. Based on the one report so far, this will lead to a phone number for you to call that will play another message to us from Maya. The message should in turn provide a clue that will unlock one of six parts of the final video on Love Letters to the Future (keyword: Maya2109).

Part 1: Stockholm & Buenos Aires – UNLOCKED
Part 2: Hong Kong & Cork – UNLOCKED
Part 3: Mumbai & Toronto
Part 4: Amsterdam & Sao Paulo
Part 5: Washington, DC & Cankurtaran
Part 6: Copenhagen, Kinderdijk, & Beijing

Based upon the wording of the clues, most of these locations will have something for you to find in real life. However, for Kinderdijk, Beijing, Cankurtaran, and Sao Paulo, it appears that you will need an Android phone with the Layar application in order to see the clue.

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
Date: Posted Apr 24, 2009
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.

Thanks to @drizjr for the tip.

Update: Hollywood and Los Angeles missions completed by @krystyn. St. Louis completed by Nyst. London completed by DaiMudda.

There is now an easily readable list of which missions are completed and which are not: http://thewaytheirworldended.com/A-WHOLE-BUNCH/



Intimation – GPS Mission – San Francisco, Las Vegas, Toronto, St Louis


Game: Intimation

Intimation has four incomplete GPS Missions that need to be completed.

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.

From reports by halo422mjk, 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.

The NY Mission took approximately 40 minutes on foot and “besides the occasional faulty targeting system of the gps, the game was fairly easy”.
