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.

Test Subjects Needed / Human Preservation Project- Dead Drops – Nationwide

Status: Concluded

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).

Tron – Live Event – Philadelphia, Raleigh, Washington DC


Game: Tron (Flynn Lives)
Type: Live Events
Location: Philadelphia, PA / Raleigh, NC / Washington DC
Date: February 24, 2010
Status: Completed

We got a report in chat (#tron on irc.chat-solutions.org) from jsailor that he was the 6th person at the Atlanta drop. All he got was “just a chance to see a guy playing video poker in a “Flynn Lives” shirt telling me it had already been checked in.” This probably means that only the first person at each location will be given the phone and wallet “prize pack”. However, since I haven’t heard any reports from persons 2, 3, 4 or 5 about being denied at the location, I can’t say for sure. So please think twice about traveling long distances to attend the event since the odds are poor that you’ll end up with anything.

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.

Love Letters to the Future – Info Drop – Worldwide


Game: Love Letters to the Future
Type: Info Drop
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.

Institute for Human Continuity – Info Drops


Game: Institute for Human Continuity
Type: Info Drop
Location: Greater Metro Areas of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington DC
Date: October 26 (8am-noon) / Oct. 27 (3-6pm) and October 28 (8am – noon) / Oct. 29 (3-6pm)
Status: Concluded

Okay, here’s the deal. We have two more dead drops based upon the new book tour dates posted at the Farewell Atlantis Facebook page. We know the cities and the dates, but not the actual location. In order to get that, we need at least one person to check out one of the 800+ gas stations during the info drop periods, get the address, and then share it with the group.

It should be noted that Soren Ulfert has totally slacked off on alerting us to when the info drops are occurring. By my calculations, there should be an info drop today, but there has been no mention of it. Soren has also changed the time of the drops the last few times so that there is only a morning session (8a – 12p) instead of an afternoon session as well. Of course, since he hasn’t told us anything lately, this could have changed again. But I have to imagine someone somewhere is in a position where they could just swing by one of the locations without it being too far out of their way.

Update: Soren actually gave a blog update with the dates and times. He’s gone back to the original schedule of 8a-noon two days before the drop and 3-6pm one day before the drop. So to recap:

Information on Dallas dead drop:
October 26: 8a – 12p
October 27: 3p – 6p

Information on Philadelphia dead drop:
October 28: 8a – 12p
October 29: 3p – 6p

Anyone with access to one of the 800+ gas stations can retrieve this information.

So, if you live in one of the 15 metro areas listed above, find a gas station near you from the list, swing by today or tomorrow AND Wednesday or Thursday, grab the info and let me know about it. Easiest thing in the world, right?
