I asked who killed Dick and got a cut scene with a letter from Mrs ? to Cleveland Carr saying: Dearest Cleveland, it seems a few stragetic casualties are in order.

So interesting...I pledge to not sleep until this is solved. Here are a couple I've toyed with:
Q: I am compromised.
A: Ok
I think ok is a similar response as "i don't understand"

Q: What fire?
A: Wooden CC brass knuckles cutscene

Q: Why is it wooden?
A: To communicate with the underground.

Q: How old am I?
A: Thats for you to find out.

Q: How can I find my age?
A: Map cutscene

I'm going to run some names through an anagram maker and see if anything stands out.
Also I heard the 730 AM message about a "bright day above our city." and "breeze out of the southwest."
Im going to do some digging on that...maybe a code over the airwaves ?

I think he is behind all these, acting probably for the AMP. I think he is also behind the fire at the warehouse...

Something I have been wondering is how are we supposed to talk to other people using the tap kit? Why are we stuck with this guy who apparently is not very willing to enlighten us? Also, why doesn't our character eat the onion soup (lol) and what is all this nonsense with the buried babies and the regen sentence and the textile guild. It all is so absurd and incoherent...

Just a wild thought maybe we need some kind of password to "activate" key 16 since it dosnt only say "command not valid" it also gives some of the old messages like "i didnt catch that" and so on

Good fun tho

When I type "What did we do wrong" the entire app crashes and I have to start over (meaning I cannot type with the keyboard or send messages with the device.

The letter is from "Mrs. O". If you ask "Who is mrs O" you get a personnel card of Ruth Orwell. Also you can ask "Who is mr orwell" and you get the personnel card of Councilman Orwell.

Ok I need sleep. I just cant click the lil button properly any more. Here's what I've got. Im not sure if any of it holds any water though:

1. Looking at the map I've noticed a few oddities:

A)"TARGET THESE AREAS" where all capital E's are rounded like a backward 3, apparently called a Greek E. In handwriting analysis, a rounded E is ofted attributed to well read individuals.
B) a couple of cities stood out like "Baddogleg", "Atwatee", "Green Light" "New Pulse" and "Beacon One".
I ran Baddogleg through an anagram creator and the only interesting value spit out was Gold Badge. (maybe something there, i know im stretching. Asking about Beacon One and New Pulse, the tapbox responds with something like "A place in our city".

2. Radio broadcasts seem to play every half hour or so. I started catching them at 0900 PST and every 30 minutes afterword until 1100. I don't know if this will lead somewhere, but thought best to at least try to document and see if/when it starts to repeat itself.
PARAPHRASED:
0900: Sunny skies, a breeze from the Southwest. *followed by some chatter by a woman cutoff midsentence. Something like "level 8 winds" which according to wikipedia is a strong gale, but not anywhere near hurricane forces. Something more akin to tree branches snapping.
0930: "Constructing final tower for Illumination Day" ... "one said, 'It will be an expletive night.'"
1000: "Walter Lafong was quoted as saying, 'Illumination Day will be huge.'"
1030: Just recall something like "...sacred annual celebration."

3. Just a few small points here using ChaoticOrder's nice selection of screen grabs over on page 8:
A) "what is coming 1" shows a piece of paper, perhaps folded, with a message that reads "1,000 ORDERS = REVOLUTION". I noticed also that it appers to be written on the flipside of the schematics from "what is coming 2" *Just in case that wasn't obvious already.

Well that's it kiddos. Im too drained to even tell if this is coherent, but hopefully somethign comes of it. Thanks to you ChaoticOrder for taking the time to organize all of that data for us. Night all and good luck.

This probably has no relevance at all, but throw a couple of spaces into Baddogleg and you get, "Bad Dog Leg".

We have a wiki going that already has a lot of what people are posting. Please read through it, and the previous pages of this thread before posting things we've found like 10 times.

tapjoint.wikia.com...

I'd hate to think a good lead gets washed away in messages like "I got a note from Carr signed by someone", and the wires.

While that is an enticing response, it turns out "glasses" is not a keyword.

Yup. Sorry mate. At the time, on my mobile, none of that info was appearing. Trying to cover all my bases...

For a simple matter of convenience, you do not have to tap in "type fourteen" to get in keyboard mode when starting from scratch on the page. It works if you use key 15 to tap "T F", just the letters T and F separated by a space.

Hear that sound? That's the sound of this game dragging a$$.

www.imdb.com... .Some one mentioned this earlier. The plot sounds a lot like whats going on in the game.

Thanks

This is the show I mentioned before, but the more I read about it and the clues we have, I'm not feeling that way any more. First off the show seems to really emphasize the fact that all forms of energy have disappeared, so unless we're playing a game that is after the series timeline, I sounds like a different (albeit slightly similar) premise. Although the Super 8 viral took place after the events of the movie, I doubt a TV show ARG would for the fact that rarely do they know how a show will end, and this would mean setting up characters (young characters) who will grow up into the characters we're interacting with. It would also potentially spoil major themes to the show if energy hasn't disappeared.

I'm sort of torn right now between believing it's just a game for fun, or it being for a very indie release of something.

The reason I think it could be for fun is that it seems to not be pointing in any direction right now, and generally if it was for a major product they'd like to be associating the game with the product in the player's minds already, just so even if we stop playing, we'd still be aware of the product. The reason I don't think it's just a game is because of the #ty way the twitter feed is working. Generally for pure games, twitter plays an actual role, almost controlled by another person, and isn't just an aggregate of anything people tweet at it (which is pretty much not useful at all, especially when the mobile site says look for clues there).

The reasons I think it could be an indie product (or smaller release/small company) are pretty much the same reasons. A major studio would want their product displayed right away, just so people who quit the game in disgust BECAUSE THE KEY WE'RE SUPPOSED TO USE DOESN'T WORK will at least know what the product was so in months when it finally comes out we go "hey, I remember hearing about that, I think I'll see it". And the reason the twitter feed is # is because this smaller company doesn't have the staff to dedicate a person to the ARG, the team created an ARG to build hype, but is now focusing all their efforts on the actual product. The twitter is because, hey, who doesn't have twitter nowadays, right? Odds are they would have also made an official twitter that day or before to claim the name, so in an imaginary world where we can see all users created during a specific time period, we could probably see @TapJoint and @OfficialProduct made around the same time.


But I could be totally off base here. I like to apply what I know about business to these sorts of things, but ARGs are popular because they aren't the advertising people are used to, and they aren't well documented. In fact they do better the more they stray from the pack. This could be for some huge movie release, and they're playing it close to the vest.


All in all, we've pretty much hit a dead end here, so unless the developers want to actually make use of their twitter feed to drop a hint, or maybe fix Key Sixteen before Illumination Day (when we're already supposed to have our waveunit, not be trading for it), people's interest is going to wane.

I won't give up. You have all seen the anonymous logo on one of the documents. Anonymous have a long connection with 4chan, witch today have a password protected forum together. The password seems to be Cold, but what about the user name, should any of these be converted to type 16 maby
