Comment on Endgame Variations: Multiple Play Styles for the End of the World by Michael Andersen http://www.argn.com/2014/10/endgame_variations_end_of_the_world_play_styles/comment-page-1/#comment-13358 Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:37:38 +0000 http://www.argn.com/?p=7198#comment-13358 Matt: from what I can determine, the Kepler Futuristics site (which I think you’re describing) tracks your progress with puzzles, but is not the starting point itself. When I solved one of the puzzles in the book, it took me to a different website that asked me to log into my Google account: when I returned to Kepler Futuristics, the room changed to reflect that.

If you’ve ever participated in an MIT Mystery Hunt, it’s kind of like how the rounds are organized on websites that reveal additional information as more puzzles are solved.

Actual experience may vary, but that’s my impression from what I’ve seen so far.

For instance, in your article you state:

“There are multiple entry points to the puzzle hunt: for the trail I have been following, a puzzle within the book lead me to a validation page, asking me to solve a similarly themed puzzle before taking me to an interactive website containing yet another challenge.”

Yet, when I open this site (presumably) on Chrome with my Google account signed in, I am stuck in a room that I cannot interact with. I’ve been a puzzle enthusiast for years, but I’ve found these dead ends to be more frustrating than intriguing.

Your thoughts?

The publicly released statistics on World Without Oil can be found at the link below: for ethnographic research, you’re likely better off reaching out directly to Ken Eklund. http://www.christydena.com/online-essays/arg-stats/

I am also looking for any further enthographic research published (or unplublished) on this groundbreaking game.

Nevertheless I think this entire thing has been a brilliant ride, nice article :)

Comment on Ingress Anomalies Mix Live Events with In-App Gameplay by Michael Andersen http://www.argn.com/2014/04/google_ingress_recursion_anomaly_event/comment-page-1/#comment-12959 Sat, 05 Jul 2014 19:45:34 +0000 http://www.argn.com/?p=7112#comment-12959 As much as I have faith in your ability to do a speed run to catch up, I’m also glad you didn’t have to hold up your promise to delete the account. Especially since Resistance still took Recursion as a whole.

…and Interitus.
