I saw this through strangely enough, a collegehumor posting on YouTube. Sure has all the makings on ARG...

What do you think?

The Inside
DAY 1



DAY 1

Christina Perasso wakes up confused in a dirty room. Looking around she calls for help with no reply. A laptop turns on across the room and we hear a creepy version of "The More We Get Together" playing. Opening the laptop Christina uses the screen as a light and starts looking around the room and sees that the exit is deliberately blocked with chicken wire and there is a camera above her, watching her. There is a cryptic message taped at the bottom of the laptop. It appears to be a page of a paperback book with words scribbled on the edge:

Quote:
A SINGLE ROSE CAN BE MY GARDEN ...
A SINGLE FRIEND MY WORLD.

Leo F. Buscaglia

Quote:
Also, there are letters circled. The ones that we can see: AAHBCC



Christina takes pictures of her surroundings using the laptop's webcam asking her friends for help.

ROOM#1 INVENTORY
(Updated Pictures of the room can be found here:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Christina-Perasso/214021851970980 )
    A bed
    Pillow with Red Heart drawn on it (Blood?)
    a night stand
    a chair
    a table
    a laptop (with four leaf clover)
    a red couch
    a painting above the couch
    a door sealed with metal mesh
    a video camera above her
    a dresser with nicknacks on it
    a lamp
    A bowl
    a picture above the dresser
    A window seen through the hole in her room's ceiling.

I take it that we're meant to interact with the character via Facebook or Twitter? If so, I have neither - so I'm oooout! Very Happy

Since Christina's access to the Internet is limited, I can't imagine we'll hear much from her via FB or any other outlet, except to post findings like the torn page and the receipt. It's hard to tell at this point. There have already been hundreds of posts on her wall and pictures, and from what I can see she hasn't responded to anyone.

Emma Hickox's Facebook page leads to another fictional character:

Lucca Sciberd
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lucca-Scibird/168356466561984

In Christina's photo gallery, there's a photo where a part of the wallpaper is peeled away.


This may lead to the following URL:
http://acornwallpaper.com/

At first I was excited at seeing what appeared to be hidden letters in one of the wallpaper images. However, following the trail seemed to lead to another wallpaper site that puts watermarks on their images. Maybe a false trail?

The other site's images are below.

Also, the Buscaglia website has lots of commented out info about the Felice foundation and meeting place forum in the page source. Don't know if this site in-game or not though ...

Wow, this whole thing seems to have exploded to the point beyond which any real control can be maintained. Since FB seems to be the only place where communication is happening, it's really hard keeping track of any discoveries.

I'll continue lurking for now. Dunno how much help I'll be in a sea of "LOOK AT THIS SPECK IN THE PICTURE IT MIGHT BE IMPORTANT"

I agree. It is hard to see the actual content in the unending ocean of facebook comments. I'll be lurking the twitter and youtube channels for the time being.

Additional fictional character:
Cathy Perasso

The coffee shop receipt on Christina's facebook "Wall Photos" leads to a website:
http://www.javabirdjobs.net

The close-up picture of the pipes on Christina's facebook "Wall Photos" leads to another new website:
http://www.janriskibrothersplumbing.com

The plumbing website contains a phone number: 424-235-1782

Calling the number leads yields -118.233
Which seems to be a solve for the circled punctuation and characters on the Buscaglia note -AAH.BCC (A=1, B=2...)

Two things point to LA:
1. Leo F Buscaglia
2. -118.233 is the latitude of LA.

Another new website (from Christina's twitter):
http://www.yourfriendsaremyfriends.com/


YouTube: Link

There is a huge amount of data on the facebook profiles but it's very hard to tell what's relevant and even though a lot has been found it doesn't seem to get us anywhere?

We know this is a clue to the game. Can one of the video people take a look? Is there anything hidden?

I don't know if this was in the description but in the source code there was something:
Quote:
The modern world has ripped us apart.

Technology has tricked us.

The human condition cannot be rendered in zeros and ones.

It has made us think that each of us can stand alone.

IT HAS MADE US BELIEVE that what kept us alive for millennia is no longer needed.

It has shattered families, broken communities, made friends little more than shadows.

It has made us think that each of us are kings and queens,

masters of our own tiny worlds when in fact we are prisoners in our tiny castles,

more exposed to the perils of existence than we have ever been.

We have forgotten what we need most.

That only together are we strong.

That sharing empowers us.

That to help another is to help ourselves.

I WILL show the world the error of its ways.

I will show them the truth.

The lesson will be hard.

They will fear me, hate me.

THEY WILL CALL ME INSANE.

But they will learn.

TRUTH IS THE WAY.

Good Job Cherrytree!
Puzzle

Great Job! Okay, any idea what this could be?

Maybe a code?

-aah.bbc (as a number it be -118.233)
