[Trailhead] BodyMindChange

Saw this retweeted by wikibruce a few days ago, have not had a chance to poke around much, but it looks interesting and thought I'd share.

Yeah, I signed up for this, and there is a "Pod Challenge" page which is currently "Offline" which is probably worth keeping an eye on...

Interesting--there's a sign up link and a rather creepy/awesome trailer. I got a poor screen grab at the 59 second mark--maybe a sequence of numbers, maybe nothing...

A column from Filmmaker Magazine that claims the writer toured BMC's offices:
http://filmmakermagazine.com/68303-pod-wants-to-know-you/

[META] About game-launch date and subject:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
At launch on October 25, registered participants will be guided through an episodic interactive narrative that functions as a simulator for training their PODs. Completing this three-part experience will guarantee them a unique POD generated from their behaviour during the simulations. Their POD will be available for pick-up at the close of the David Cronenberg: Evolution exhibition in January 2014 at the BMC Labs installation, located in the CIBC Canadian Film Gallery on the 4th floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox.


There are a few points in the video that have code on screen:

I don't know if it's just an effect or something, but there's this image on the source of the page:http://bodymindchange.ca/assets/img/main/podlight.png
It flashes on the top right of evey page every few seconds.

This does indeed look interesting. Plus relatively local for the Pod pickup at the end if I happen to be chosen.

Edit: Also the "Pod Challenge" page is no longer visible on the website.

I believe the POD Challenge link is only viewable on the welcome/bmc page.

Ahh silly me, you are right. I was searching the site again, and didn't see it, so I assumed it was removed from the menu until it was active.

I did the same thing, and then navigated away from it and thought I had lost my chance or something!

Has anybody made any leeway on the code? I've tried all the basic ciphers such as base64, 32, hex, binary. It doesn't produce anything that is discernible. I even went as far as frequency analysis and got nowhere.

I'm thinking that it either is meant to be a red herring or it won't become useful until after the game starts.
