Lewis Hamilton: Secret Life

So, someone pointed me to www.secretlewis.com, which is a site that

a) has something to do with British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton and
b) is somehow connected to Reebok (where Hamilton signed a huge sponsorship deal) and
c) has a countdown (ARG radar goes bleep Wink )

Being the huge F1 fan that I am, and McLaren (Hamilton's team) being one of my fav teams, the site kinda piqued my interest. There's a video showing Hamilton conducting some kind of high-tech breaking and entering, helped along by a pretty girl with a headset.

Some Googling leads to the same video on Youtube and Daily Motion, both labeled as follows:

Lewis Hamilton Lewis Hamilton Reebok ARG Game Alternate Reality Game Secret Lewis Secret Life Teaser Secret (my emphasis)

Interesting... I guess we'll have to wait until March 10th for the countdown to be done. The site also links to a Twitter account, but nothing too exciting there.

I saw Lewis Hamilton on Top Gear and thought he was great. I admit I wouldn't have thought of a Formula 1 racing ARG - but it should be fun.

Just got an email reminding me of this.

And we're famous again... the site's "About" page links directly to this thread. Smile

Yup! I did it twice because I didn't see the links first time around. 59 moves - although my map does it in 57. It's a rather fun game!

After completion:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Gives link to a youtube video with "corrupted" sound file - channel has other videos on it edit: same one in other languages.

Edit: Duh silly mill <Corrupted> is the link lol.

 Completed first game... not sure i'll continue though!

Completed the first game.... looks like it could turn out quite good, but after being sucked into games before, last noteably Xi on PS Home, I think I'll try my hardest to avoid this one!

An ARG that combines puzzles and cardio?

I'm interested.

Introducion

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and I would like to introduce myself. My names Danny aka Qbrain on the global web. I signed up on this forum because I want to take part in the global community to complete the ARG Secret Lewis, created by nDreams.

I also took a major part a year ago in the first ARG of nDreams, Xi, on Playstation Home. These guys know what they do, and I know the're reading this, but I still wanted to make that compliment.

Anyway, I would love to take part in this community and help solve the many puzzels/mysteries we will have to solve.
And I should warn you guys, they can think of anything! You really should join the adventure cause I know its going to be great and innovative.

greets,

-Q

ps. for all i know is that the one who is trying to delete the audio file is kind of stupid.. maybe he should have stopped the recording of that audio file itself before trying to delete it.. Wink

edit: btw take a look at the Therms and Conditions lol, we are not even allowed to translate the stuff into an other language. Glad we are still able to read and follow the sourcecodes Razz (but there will be an update now soon i think...)

:: waves :: Hi! I hope there'll be updates soon!

Intuitively, I don't think there's going to be much involving the source codes, at least not on secretlewis.com and probably not without heavy prompting elsewhere, like, as part of the game.=( I took a look at one page's source code and got a wee bit carried away investigating, ending up spoiling myself a little. Oops. =(

Did anyone notice that the US/UK areas have a slightly different item ID than the other areas?

UK/US: 34895TY56
Others: AQH34895TY56

We'll see...

Did the first game etc when it was released, got the links to the youtube files... not sure if anything else is around to dig into... though I did notice the slightly different tracking code. If you click on the title "lights go out" however, you go to a blog-style entry page which does show the code AQH34895TY56 in full in the English version, so probably a missed edit.

wait and see perhaps.
