new arg

Heard wind of this new arg/transmedia project launching...here is the link to the rabbit hole. I don't know much about it other than i believe they are based in Toronto (which is how I heard about it) and the website looks really spiffy.

http://byologyc.com/

I'm way too busy working on my own arg right now to get in on this, but i'll lurk to see how it goes. cheers.

This is one of the most ambitious independent productions I've ever seen. I'll be watching this one closely.

I like the looks of this too and am close enough to Toronto to make it to live events. But I'm kind of worried about making it back home since the end game really is the end Shocked .

I got a warning from my antivirus about an exploit kit when I tried to visit zed - anybody else have a problem with that, or did my antivirus screw up?

Edit - tried to go there by clicking on the link in the lower right.

My antivirus gave me a warning earlier this afternoon as well, but it hasn't happened for me since.

No more antivirus issues for me either. Sorry for the false alarm. Neglected to say this before, but I'm really impressed with what I've seen so far!

I sent an email asking about their internship program, and this is what I got in response tonight:

Quote:
Hello David,

Thank you for expressing interest in becoming a part of our Versatile Intern Program. This exciting new testing and outreach initiative is an extremely important element of how we do things here at ByoLogyc and we are looking for keen individuals like you to be part of our growing team.

The purpose of the VIP initiative, first envisioned in 2010, is to make sure we keep one step ahead of our customers, so we can always feel confident in developing and designing new products that fulfill their needs and help them achieve their destiny. A large part of this is staying alert and responsive to how the modern human being interacts with their environment, on both the personal and professional level. As our ears and eyes, you would be an essential extension of our ability to gather information about those around you. Duties would include the collection and correlation of this data for transmission back to ByoLogyc.

Now, we want to tell you more, but first we have to make sure that you are as perfect for this task as we hope you are. In the coming weeks, we will be contacting you again to begin the evaluation procedure. If accepted, the testing and gathering process would begin in earnest.

As in all things, access to key information is earned, not granted. That said, interns who possess the right attitude and prove their aptitude in fulfilling their duties stand to go far with ByoLogyc.

Again, we want to thank you for your interest in this program and are looking forward to potentially working with you soon.

Sincerely,

Olive Swift
Quality Assurance Director
ByoLogyc Inc.


There was a specific email address and a phone number there too... should I post them up?

Oh, I forgot to post this up, it came with the email:

Olive Swift
Quality Assurance Director
ByoLogyc Inc.

oliveSPLATbyologyc.com
1.866.296.6090

Looks like we've got a first NPC...

Calling the phone number gets to an automated tree. Haven't had time to sift through it yet. Check it out, though!

EDIT: Ok, some of the phone tree options are pretty hilarious, but I haven't seen anything unusual yet...

EDIT 2: Ok, listened to the whole phone tree. there's a hidden option on the main menu if you press seven. Option 5 and its resulting menu choices are somewhat creepy. Actually, they only get weirder as you go from one to five on each choice...
