It asked me to chec my mobile device, i said what mobile device and it told me to check my pocket o.o
I love this and I think it's a clever toy. It's a little slow on my computer so when I try sending out a message it's glitching and lagging. When I start to decode the messages I only need one letter from each word to understand what the operator is saying.
Spoiler alert: this game is a vehicle to promote an animated web series called 'Electric City', starring Tom Hanks. It was announced back in January, and there was some buzz about it back in March/April, but nothing more has been heard about it since then.
Basically it's a mystery game, you ask questions and when you hit on a clue you get a special message. After a while you get pretty fast at reading and sending messages.
ask "How do i join the revolution"
lol i send: Die
and i received a letter saying a few strategic casualties are in order.
"why am i here"----"TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE UNDERGROUND"
guess im back in WWII
fuks it do?
If you need some help (let any number x be greater than 5):
x/0 deletes last code
0/x deletes this code
long click for STOP
two long clicks for END
i found that if you ask 'what do you want to do' it comes up with a newspaper clipping here:(http://oi42.tinypic.com/29fu5j.jpg)
and i found that if you ask 'what city' it comes up with a map
if you ask 'who are you' its comes back with 'a revolutionary'
and then if you ask 'what revolution' it comes back with 'a thousand waveunit users coming together'
and then from the news paper clipping i asked 'what is AMP' and it comes back with 'Allied Municipal Patrol'
anyone else come up with anything? this game seems interesting but its a pain when you fuck up the message you are trying to send.
I found this forum topic online about tapjoint.
this is cool, am i actually talking to somebody? cause i'm trying to tell them that "the end is near" and it is really difficult.
Interesting. My computer is unbearably slow to make this work effectively (a wrong tap ruins your message), but I asked "What is this for?" and got "To communicate with the underground" and "Who am I talking to?" with "A revolutionary." Way too fast a response for me to believe I'm talking to a real person, but cool nonetheless. Might steal this coding pattern for personal use, as well.
What is the point of this?
