Re: Boxset secret thread

One thing i've been wondering...whatever this turns out to be doesn't appear to be for box owners only...we don't have a unique code/password to enter anywhere online. So basically, once word gets out everyone will be able to "access" it.

Unless there is a unique hidden pass code in there somewhere.

I had the same thought the other day... Unless it eventually comes down to a specific password or something that's emailed out.

Re: Boxset secret thread

I think whatever it ends up to be, however, will not be worth all of the chasing around that has been needed to get it.

I'm also thinking has any other artist ever done something this weird? He releases this cool - yet also bizarre box set - and then sets in motion a bizarre runaround using Magic Eye images and codes and strange Twitter accounts.

...but then again...we're talking about Ryan Adams!

Zork was an old text adventure. I used to have it on my Apple II+

This sounds fascinating... and exhausting. I hope it's fun for you all!

My friends and I are loving it. We have a group text going and we solved two of the three puzzles. I just hope he throws something up soon to let us know we are on the right path or if we are wasting our time.

Trying to follow this all - when people are saying some of the puzzles have been "solved" what does that mean? Is it just he tweets something > someone responds with the word he's looking for > he tweets back "solved" and sends another cryptic tweet?

I get it, it's a cool process, but a little hard to follow and see the progress

@maximumdra tweets out an magic eye image, you try to figure out what it is then when you are right he sends out another one (usually says DECODE). You keep going through these until you reach a point when he says Solved. You don't know if its the last image or if there will be more.

Re: Boxset secret thread

I wonder if this is a stall till the rest of the boxsets have been received. It is fun, but I'm not seeing any progress in terms of uncovering any secrets. Unless those who've solved them are getting DMed.

It would be cool if the 312 pages were a progression of riddles you had to unlock one by one to get to the Blackhole. This might just be a preview of what is to come.

The maximumdra twitter account was created May 15th. That's after people started posting pictures of the URL. This could be a wind up.. but who knows..

I solved the first one, @james_or_rex, with the answer NOSTROMO and I did not get a DM or any message what so ever. How did you find out that the twitter was made May 15th? I found it Wednesday morning, May 17th, and I was the first to follower. If someone found it sooner dont you think they would have followed it?

I looked it up on the twitter birthday site. I didn't follow it when I first found it. I wasn't sure it was legit. Plus there is the whole WarGames "the only winning move is not to play" thing. **Also you found it before I did. People had already followed it.

I mean.. I'm torn. It feels like Ryan's brainchild. But that is mostly because of the references. Things he's claimed to be a fan of or things that would make sense for him to be into. The tweets themselves lack any clear personality. They are a series of set responses. Like a super computer. Which fits the game perfectly but could also mean anyone is doing it.

I'm going to play either way. Good work on that one! My eyes were not working at all. Obviously I immediately could see Follow the Code but the code.. not at all.

I'm just waiting to see what happens. Happy people are having fun. I must admit looking at a magic eye on my computer was rather cool. I STILL GOT IT!!!!

Re: Boxset secret thread

I had a feeling that the @altWOPR account is fake, but now I'm pretty certain. It's posting quotes from 'Infinity Blues'. Seems unlikely DRA would be digging up his own obscurities to tweet.

Re: Boxset secret thread

I don't want it to be Blackhole. Rather that have a release. If it's anything it should be Prisoner extras.
