OMG THANK YOU ajluczak.. the second i whacked it into Google and saw what it meant it hit me.. You sir are God :)

Just got number 3.. massive hint/spoiler for those who might make the same mistake i do

Number 4 was a challenge but thank you to those who worked out the cypher :) cheers to the Escapist for making this amazing.

On a side note, does anyone know when Day 3 launches? Is it at noon?

I_am_a_Spoon:

Thanks a lot mate. I didn't even think the answer was a game... I thought it might have been the protagonist's profession lol.

Tried entering words like soldier, writer, hunter, cop, etc for ages.

I was gonna start doing stuff like that to. My list of games that take place in Mars was quickly running out. I was sure it was any of the Doom games!

Let me just congratulate the Escapist on puzzle 2-4. That is brilliant.
Still have 2-1, and 2-2 to solve...
Anyone help with 2-1? So far I have... (SERIOUSLY GUYS, THE SOLUTION TO THE EQUATION IS BELOW, SO MASSIVE SPOILER!)


Ok, so any hint on 2-2? Once more, spoiler warning.

EDIT: Got it guys. But thanks for all the help, got four responses in this short time.

Well today's only came up at about 4pm (Australian NSW time) so im guessing in about 17 hours time? And they say it is only going to get a lot harder.

Screw You, number 3! I haven't even heard of the game! I didn't even know there was a game. Still, considering

For 2-2 you have the right idea with saying the clue..

Hmmm...have 2-1/2-3/2-4 but I can't decipher 2-2. My native accent may be confusing the tongue twister.

YES YES and furthermore YES!

ajluczak:
THIS IS A MAJOR HINT FOR 2-3. IT'S SLIGHTLY MORE DIRECT THAN USUAL. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Stumped on 3 for some time, but this hint eventually did it for me.

Also, the first hints on 1 & 2 were really great.

Ok, thanks for all the help guys, but I desperately need help with 2-1 and 2-3.

Number Three:

I'd really appreciate a helping hand. Just a little hint. I don't have an extensive knowledge of games, so I'm finding it really hard to work this one out.

One, two and four done. Even converted the binary in my head and still didn't get it fully until reading a couple of hints here.


It works incredibly well.

Still not sure on three though.

The_root_of_all_evil:

Hmm i am not sure how else to help without giving away the answer... This is going to be a HUGE spoiler and possibly give the answer away- you have been warned.. it narrows the choice down to a list of about 5 games

I haven't put any game titles in the spoiler because i don't want it to be ridiculously easy.

Tell me asap if it reveals too much so i can get rid of it.

Detheroth:

I'd been trying that guys, and it wasn't working. Don't worry, I kept trying, and persistence paid off.
Still can't believe it took so long to figure out 2-1 though...
Thanks for the speedy responses guys.

ajluczak:
So, I've gotten a request or two for more hints about 2-3.

THIS IS A MAJOR HINT FOR 2-3. IT'S SLIGHTLY MORE DIRECT THAN USUAL. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Oh...wow, that was very very lame. Thank you for all the hints you've given us...I finally have gotten it now and answered it. Now it all makes sense, plus Day 2 is finally over for me... *upset* but the hint was misleading, truly not cool Haha. Thank you again, and it's ironic after searching all this time for Zombie Games, it turned out to be that...

You wouldn't believe how long I thought the word "Mexico" was in the title.

Glad I wasn't the only one that thought that.

I think i should probably stop before i start giving them away D:

What about you music knowledge? Listen, why don't you take a break and consult things with the Man In The Mirror. I'm sure you'll have a Thriller of a time once you realize what it is. By the way when do the Black Or White pokemon games come out?

;)

The Red Spy:

It works so well.

Got it!

Yep, it was the accent. I'd never pronounce one of those words in that other way.

Yikes these were tough.
Especially the last one... I dread tomorrow.

ajluczak:

Almost as long as I did, I bet. The real answer's bad though.

This puzzle adventure is truly epic. Got all the answers, mostly thanks to all the kind peeps on this thread.

For those having difficulty, pay attention to key words that are dropped in people's hints. In most cases, think of the first thing/person associated with that key word. [e.g., the 'smooth criminal' hint].

Whew, finally got 'em all. 2 & 3 were the only ones I really figured out alone though ; ;.

In my opinion, the solution to Puzzle 1 was clever. Now for my two-cents hint..

I hope that wasn't too heavy-handed.

By all the Gods, Puzzle #4 was awesome. More of that, please!

I have removed my words from this site.

I have to go back and work out how to do that properly, but for now, 1/4 lights. Still can't get my head around number 1 (it's not Portal, I know that much.)

#2 for day 2 is kicking my ass. I've tried the suggestion of saying the clue fast over and over but it's not helping. I have a new phrase but it's worthless to me.

Edit, never mind, I'm a fucking idiot. Say the PUZZLE part over and over. It's practically poetry.

I actually simply guessed 2-4. I picked a random game name and it was actually correct. I am the luckiest bastard ever xD

NeedAUserName:

Luhrsen:

Thanks alot. It was too obvious. Helps to write it down. Only 3 & 4 now.

Same here, and I've got some people saying the clue for 4 is helpful, others saying it isn't. I'm thoroughly confused.

Think of a recent game where you wouldn't wear something made of linen and lace.

That is rather vague.

Also I'm stuck on Day 1, Puzzle 3. What the hell is Match, Mix then patch to fix supposed to mean? It might as well be in Chinese.

Kermi:

This has me stumped.
It just doesn't sound like anything real when I say it over and over.

Vault Citizen:

Match up the codes with their , mix the letters up. The last part is a more subtle clue.

I gotta say, people on this thread, you guys are awesome. Would never have gotten the first two days complete without the helpful hints on here. Maybe I can start paying back.

It didn't to me either, it's quite language dependent. Try using Red Spy's Google Translate trick.
