It looks like it might be something. I can't see anything hidden on the site. I signed up to get the email. We'll see if anything comes of that.

The phrase she says is "In the general's north chamber the future is revealed."

no google hits for "general's north chamber", but there's a "North Chamber of Commerce", and numerous "(state) North Chamber of Commerce"s... so that might be a dead end.

I was thinking that the general's north chamber referred to a monument of some kind? Does anyone know what city is in the photo on the site? Identifying that might help.

All I can really see is the prudential sign but my instincts point to NYC but I could of course be wrong.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that that's Chicago. The small building is One Prudential Plaza, and the larger is Two Pru. The tall building in the foreground is Aon Center.

I'm guessing if that's the general?

hidden frame

This looks like fun - I hope it is based in Chicago. I noticed there is a hidden frame in the video - Problem is I still don't know what it means.

Edited: removed pictures to save space as my attachement box was full and the photos had nothing to do with the actual game afterall.

Maybe the hidden frame has to do with a landmark in Chicago? It looks like something from maybe Millennium Park or the Art Institute. Are there any art pieces in Chicago like that?

Edit: Based on some other frames that flash by (show more to the left of the first hidden frame), it looks like the images are the pictures behind her on the wall in the rest of the video. One picture you can see partly cut off by the left edge, and it looks like the smiley face-ish thing is on the brick wall behind her.

I saw this on TV this morning as well. just to confirm, this is indeed the Chicago city skyline. I live in the suburbs and have been in the city more than once. I can easily tell that it is because of the tall building that is Aon Center and the small building with the "diamond-shaped" roof in the lower left of the page on the site (which is the Associates Center I believe)

if this is an ARG based in Chicago, though, I doubt I'll have the time to get into it..

It actually looks like the hidden frame is just supposed to be the image distorting and tinting, since you can see everything in the frame somewhere else in the video (as far as I know). I'm pretty sure the two pictures are behind her, and other effects make it look like it's just the image breaking up.
