It was called "Push 11", because of the website we were lead to from the rabbit holes.
The PM sent pizzas and flowers which included USB Sticks with a video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojJFnoa8His
Later we got in contact with a ten year old boy (das Kind) and we helped him to find out things about his past life.
The ARG ended in the same elevator that we already knew from the beginning.

I read this thread and it caught my interest when you mentioned Sebastian Fitzek. I know an ARG he has done in Germany and I can't believe that this is just everything.

Did someone screw the player, maybe there is something inside?

Well, I just unscrewed the player - now it's screwed. Wink

Thanks addlepated Smile

I really hoped this to be something like a trojan horse.

Thanks for you input Methos. Looks like that was great fun, so I hope there's more in store for us with this experience.

Missed something

Hey...I just read the entire thread and I don't know if it matters or not -

This author 'Dana King' that got a tape in the mail - King? Wasn't the story about charlet/charlotte about a little girl whose mother and father were the king and queen?


Perhaps he needs to be investigated more.

That and obviously the woman on the tape is either non-american or has lived abroad for a time. If she were american she wouldn't talk about kilometers, instead she would measure distance in miles.

Something to think about?

Tal

Ok, I have been lurking this one since the beginning and I am at a loss. I have searched everything I could possibly think of and I have come up with nothing. The only thing even slightly relevant that I have found, other than the fact that the book is published by St. Martin's Press, is in the excerpt of the book on their website that says Viktor's doctor is Martin Roth. But I don't know if we should even be referencing the book. P. Martin said we have to consider the items we had in our hands. Ok, so that is the tapes, the recorder, the paper they were wrapped in, and the package they came in. I don't think we would have been given the return address unless we were meant to use it. In the e-mail P. Martin said he/she saw people walking down the street looking for the apartment, and that they had been close. If nothing else turns up is anyone willing to check out the address again?

hej methos, how close was that ARG tied to Fitzeks book? did one need to read it to get clues, or was that completely optional? how long before/after the book launch was the ARG?

I think we are all at a loss. Until another tape turns up, or until P.Martin decides to be more forthcoming with information, things seem to be stuck.

I really, really think we should be looking at the wrappings of these tapes more closely... I've briefly checked over the photos and info about the wrappings, and this is the basics of what I've got so far...

1/1 - Spacebass (1040EZ instructions 2008)
1/2 - Varin (paper, March 12th Los Angeles Times)
1/2 - Dana King (front page of Tuesday (March 17th?)ís San Diego Union Tribune)
2/1 - Addlepated (paper, March 9th San Diego Union Tribune)
2/2 - Thebruce (paper, March 10th San Diego Union Tribune)
3/1 - October (tax booklet)

Could we perhaps get larger photos of the wrappings, or just more detailed descriptions of what they are? like dates, locations, publications, etc?

So I tried what SpaceBass suggested about sending an email to P Martin, I asked for the name of the woman novelist we heard from the tape. Here's what I just got back...

So you really tried to contact me again at this email address.
You seem to be very brave since you have no idea what might happen to you if you did that.


It included this picture as an attachment...

Ok, well in irc, we noticed that the back of the recorder says "turn"

But addlepated's original photo has the word "open" on the battery case.

Clear edit!

Here's what's inside my battery case cover. Space says his has different numbers -

<SpaceBass> labeled Device ID 018 Part No. 3

I'm listening to the tapes again. In the Julia one that varin got, it sounds to me like it begins with a gunshot. Any ideas on what that first loud bang is? Where it sounded like, "How about you fix me up with a room" I think she says gun instead of room but I could be wrong. Thoughts?


The noise you're talking about sounds like a train to me.

I cut this off the beginning when I posted before because it just sounded like a buzz, but now that I listened again... I swear I can hear voices near the end...


I filtered the sound file and i think that I know what it is saying.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):

You see I have are all these issues. Nice, isn't it?

I doubt that I will be able to filter it further and get a good result.

The ARG took place some months before the book came out (it was somehow the prologue to it).The most active players got a script of the book after the ARG and could read it before anybody else.
