There have been some recent changes at the Project Syzygy site showing signs that something may be happening. Despite announcements of 2005 being the launch of this new free Alternate Reality Game, a recent update at Project Syzygy reveals that “projectsyzygy is now complete.”
A new link reveals perplexcity.com and a mysterious memo. It seems some sort of McGuffin in the form of a Cube has been stolen and must be found. According the the memo, there will be a “substantial reward” for whomever may find it. Plus, you can enter your email to be contacted “when the time is right.”
Hmmmm. Preview? Launch? Reward?? Time will tell.
This comes to us from one of the Grand MastersÂ of ARGs himself, Adrian Hon: Project Syzygy. Billing itself as a “new type of immersiveÂ game, one that will change everything,”Â PS will be a cross between Masquerade,Â TheÂ Beast, Pattern Recognition, Rubik’sÂ Cube,Â The Matrix, Eternity, The DaVinciÂ Code, NokiaÂ Game, The Game, and MajesticÂ (whew!), PSÂ promises to be a ride like noneÂ other, atÂ least in our opinion.
The teaser page already has aÂ couple puzzlesÂ for the curious, and you canÂ sign up to beÂ informed of the launch. For thoseÂ of youÂ who are inclined, you can alsoÂ apply to beÂ a part of the development team. Â Project SyzygyÂ is scheduled to launch in lateÂ 2004. LookingÂ forward to it!
