[Trailhead?] Armacham Corporate

Cool, my first possible trailhead discovery!

OK, so there is a website possibly related to the new FEAR game coming out soon. It's webpage is www.armacham.com. I discovered it when TheBruce linked to an article about the new star trek film over on its thread, and it was one of the website adverts on the page.

After a few seconds of being a normal PMC site, it goes all weird and accesses a "restricted" area. I don't know if it is actually a trailhead, but there is a countdown timer for two hours from now.

Have at it guys and see if y'all come up with anything. Wink

To be more specific, the site starts "glitching" and sends you to the restricted site when you try to click the "Go" button when signing up for the newsletter.

Definitely for FEAR. Lots of references to Alma during the "Glitching." Which is really fun to watch, by the way XD

Edit: Let the server load on the restricted page, and you can access an employee's email inbox. One of them has a link to preorder the game on gamestop XD

I have found out it glitches when you try clicking on *any* of the links on the "cover" page.

EDIT: so you think it is just a viral site, then? that is disappointing, but at least I found *something*. Wink

Thank you very much; however, I think some of that credit should go to TheBruce. After all, if he hadn't linked to the page that contained the ad, thereby calling my attention to it, we would have missed it anyway... Wink

I... umm.. it was completely unintentional. I claim no credit Razz

Also look at the calendar. There are some upcoming events to possibly keep watch for.

EDIT'd for discovery: The clock seems tied to the computer's system clock.
We may have to wait for anything to actually change. Crying or Very sad

Did you notice the dates on the calender?

Edit- Oops, didn't see you there theBruce. My mistake. Also what does Arizona and it's current temp have to do with anything?

That countdown was probably leading up to an event at the Atlanta SuperCon, which takes place this weekend (Nov. 21st to 23rd). The calendar makes note of 'virtual evaluation and testing of potential candidates via gaming community in Atlanta, GA'... which means the game is probably on display there, and (given my own experience at conventions) there might be some good swag.

If anyone's attending, keep an eye out! Or if you just happen to be in Atlanta, and you feel inclined, I think you can still get tickets at the door.

There is a bit more to this said than what has been discussed. There is more than just the calander and email about pre-ordering the game. Here's what I've got (spoilered just in case):

1. After you access the email system, read the first email regarding Richard Findes' personal profile picture. At the bottom of the email is a jpg file of said picture.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
When the jpg opens you can clearly see "AF2NGIC".


2. At the bottom pf the site open the menu that reads "Personal", and click on "My Profile". The site will then promt you for a password.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Enter AF2NGIC


This is where I am at now. I've received a new email message regarding a strange video. There are also several uploaded pictures on Richard Findes profile. Also, the countdown now reads 7 days and 40 minutes remaining until next "system maintenance". It has puzzle written all over it. Join me team! I need the collective brain trust on this one.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
The video seems to be bloody footsteps on a hop-sctoch grid. I assume the numbers it hits are letters of the alphabet. If this is true, it would come out to FEAEALMA. Any thought?

EDIT - added info to third spoiler

Yeah, I thought that it would spell out FEAR, but I was wrong, especially when the bloody footsteps went all the way to 13 and stopped. Sad

I'm going to keep looking around.
