Yeah that's about all we have so far.


That's about my level of understanding at the moment! Its really early on so we don't have a lot of plot information yet (Or even very many characters!)

OK I emailed the careerSPLATblackwellbriggs.com address:

Thank you for your application. We are always on the lookout for new talents. Our openings in Thailand are mainly in the private security sector and will incorporate property surveillance and close protection services. Due to the sensitive situation in the capital, we require all applicants to provide certificates of Military Service and/or work experience from the Close Protection sector. Applicants fluent in Thai will be taken into special consideration.

We will close applications tomorrow evening (Thursday 2th, 9PM GMT) for rapid deployment next week. Please be aware that we require all employees to take a vaccination shot against Hepatitus A prior to departure. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

I've replied confronting her directly with the YouTube video suggesting they have a security leak. Lets see what they have to say.

Mr. Samuel F.

Thank you for your application. Blackwell Briggs are always on the lookout for new talents. We currently have a number of openings in Security and Drilling at our pipeline project in Lusaka, Zambia. Please provide our recruitment team with a resumé of your prior work experience, complete with certificates from past employers. Military Service, experience from the Construction sector and/or high degree studies in geology will be taken into special consideration. We will hold our annual recruitment expo in July (date TBA), but I could try to arrange a meeting with one of our recruiters if you have any prior business in London. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

Best Regards

Does anyone know an unregulated version of youtube? I'm so uploading the hi-res version to an unregulated site lol.

ETA: My response: "To the best of my knowledge it is not "illegal" to host "confidential" material, only copyrighted material. If your internal video is indeed copyrighted, I would like to see proof, and will then gladly take it down. Otherwise, for the greater good I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave it where it is."

Man, this stuff is deep. It almost feels like we're "playing with fire" so to speak. This game has moved up to number one my following | participating | lurking (all of 'em) list!

Bloody hell! I thought the emails I was getting felt more real than the normal ARG fare but going as far to send you a take down notice Azure! Blimey!

My latest email with Liz:

Quote:
Dear Mr. Gomes

We are aware of the leak but I will forward your information to our legal department. As to your prior inquiry; we will hold our annual recruitment expo in July (date TBA), but I could try to arrange a meeting with one of our recruiters if you have any prior business in London. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

Thank you.


So I'm being forwarded to legal as well. They seem to be pushing this recruitment fare quite a bit. I'm thinking it'll be a real world meet-up anyone in London? (I'm in Plymouth, Deepest Darkest Devon!)

Based on the responses people are getting saying we only have until 9:00PM GMT today to get our applications in. That's 4.5 hours (as of this post) from now.

The employee intranet is going live tomorrow (per their twitter) I'm guessing those who apply and/or get accepted will get logins. So hurry up people!

I just sent mine in and included a scan of my (fake) honorable discharge from the USMC. Hopefully that's enough, I don't look forward to faking more documents, it's time consuming Razz

I was looking into the company P when I found this press release. http://www.nokia.com/press/press-releases/showpressrelease?newsid=1302146 So I figured there would be some sort of game related item in the http://store.ovi.com/

First thing I noticed when looking was a game called "Exclusion" that had the CFG logo.

Well I don't have a cell phone period so here is what I did.

To play cell phone games on your pc install this: http://webstart.mpowerplayer.com/index.jad

Then to download the game go here:
http://www.4shared.com/get/285995012/911a2f62/Exclusion_s60e3_1_0_3_UID.html

When you open the mpowerplayer click file->open and click the file you just downloaded.

I'm not 100% sure this is related to the game but it does have a very weird code like screen if you click the CFG symbol.

ETA: As I'm playing the game I'm revealing bits of a URL in the "code" part, and I'm fairly certain it's leading me to conspiracyforgood.com

The game is also fun to play Razz

Ok, my "credentials" are sent lol. Man that was SUPER time consuming and felt rather corny to be honest lol. But hey, maybe it'll do the trick....

*ETA: Also forgot to add my most recent email response from blackwellbriggs prior to sending my "resume"...

Hello Mr. Samuel

I am glad to be of service. Even though I'm prohibited to make any kind of comment on our unfortunate breach of security last week, I can confirm that there will be openings in the IT-security division due to employee relocations. I will gladly forward your curriculum vitae to the recruitment team.

As for the Blackwell Briggs recruitment expo, the exact date is yet to be announced but it will be held in London this July. Don't forget to follow our twitter for any updates.

Best Regards

Suppose I'd better apply too. Although I've already told them that I've got no military training :-/

Might apply for the IT job. Do you think its going to be necessary?


Screw it I'm not going to do it in 7 minutes. Hopefully the job application isn't a necessary part of the game.

Instructions to play the game


Yeah I dunno about you but I like not to be given links to crappy download sites that load up so much rubbish that they render my computer inoperable, like your 4share site there. Just sayin.

Tried the Exclusion game. The codes you get are morse codes - the second one (I think?) spells out "X0L.NU" (that's a zero, not the letter "O")

Oops, seems it's the same morse code all the time - but for each level you get a tiny piece of a picture. I don't think I'll be finishing the game just to see it, though.
