Nope. Still don't get it. It's like someone shoved a monkey in my mouth and told me I had to shoot it out my butt.

That is exactly right, to do that though you need to cut the monkey up, chew it and give it some time to digest.

*thunk*

Firstly, thanks for the awesome challenge.

Secondly, I feel like a should apologise for guessing the last puzzle. I got to the book, and then tried all the games the author liked. Apparently there was more steps after that.

tictactoe:
I can't figure out the robot or the guy under it.

It pains me to know that noone recognizes the robot especially since i used to love that movie... I really hope they aren't remaking it like i've heard. Military robots becoming self aware in the 80's? HILARIOUS! In the 90's? HORRIFYING!!!!

I don't want respect, at this point I'm just going to be disappointed in myself if I can't do this. Badges mean nothing to me, my self-respect does.

*Chuckle...

I think we might just have them this time, gentlemen. Took us until Day 5, true...but my guess is they all spontaneously combust long before they actually make it past the first step.

All things are going as planned. Release the chickens..

I wish you guys would stop clucking with us

*rimshot*

OH MY GOD.

MY FIRST GUESS.

MY.FIRST.FUCKING.GUESS.

I AM GOD. SCREW YOU ESCAPIST PUZZLE CREATORS, I BEAT YOU ALL WITH MY INFINITE LOVE FOR MATHMETICIANS, kind of ;)....That's a hint, now get working on it all those without the answer!

Oh, and thanks for the puzzles those who created them. They were all great!

EDIT: And don't be mad people who got it legitimately. I did do the work, I went to all the sites and I was looking at the mathmeticians when it hit me.

Oh, yep. Got it.

Walking away for a bit did me the world of good.

I had nearly the right answer like an hour ago. Now it's so obvious to me. Ung.

Bravo guys.

Well, this is it. I can't get 4-1. No, really. I CAN'T GET 4-1. Why? I guess I'm too stupid.

I thought this would be a fun mental exercise. I thought if I put enough effort into it, I could do it. I guess I was wrong. Now, every time I think about this site, I'm going to remember that I'm a failure. I'm going to remember how I got hints and tips and guidance, and I STILL couldn't figure out 4-1. It doesn't matter if someone tells me the answer or not, the point is I'm just not good enough to figure it out on my own.

Thanks for that, Escapist. Thank you for adding yet another thing to the increasingly long list of my shortcomings.

I feel bad because I never posted on here till now. I was always about one puzzle behind the collective so my comments would've been pointless, but now that I'm done I've finally caught up. This was awesome and the escapists are awesome. Now its time to sleep.

ok new strategy everyone choose a letter and try all the games in that section I call z
but in all seriousness this is not even a puzzle anymore its a scavenger hunt... cuz i suck at puzzles

Gyaaaaaargh all that work and the answer... Awesome puzzle. Awesome, awesome puzzle.

Dude, let me offer some hints. Can you see the hidden letters?

That one wasn't so bad... cheaters do kind of prosper... sometimes.

He-he, got it.

It's funny, as I actually has just thrown it out as a guess in a previous puzzle, because a poster threw out a subtle hint that would've been blatantly obvious if it was this game, rather than what it actually was.

Have you figured out what you're actually meant to do yet? 4-1 was the hardest one for me, harder than todays. Once you figure out how to cipher, the answer is there.

Dude, let me offer some hints. Can you see the hidden letters?

NO. The colors come out wrong. Some don't come up at all. The Starcraft code does nothing. My Laptop is crap and I have no idea how to use my browser's preferences.

I got not one, but two different set of code answers from other forum members and NEITHER worked for the decoding process. NEITHER. They both give gibberish. I have no idea where to go from there.

I know nothing about codes and encryption. All I know is I failed.

I... I forfeit. You wanted to break me, huh? Well, you did it. You finally did it. Did it make you feel better? Smarter? Superior? Well, it made me feel awful, stupid, and insignificant.

Well, ignoring the different colors part, did you hit ENTER before and after the Starcraft code? I kinda had to do that for mine. I don't know about browser preference issues, though.

Got it. Finally. I got it a while ago, but I entered it wrongly then...

Here's a thing of hints for day 5... and they're all one word/symbol, because I want to be vague. :D

The day is over, the quest is done, and all's right with my world. Thank you to everyone who posted. I wouldn't have gotten half of these right without all of your help.

OK, i am feeling quite dense at the moment. I get to the page on amazon and loose the path from there. I have not yet gotten to the page with all these mathmeticians everyone is mentioning.

one word.......

help

Day 5 is quickly becoming an excercise in frustration. I must've typed in the answer at least 25 times by now and nothing :(

That was...satisfying. Thank you admin people! If anyone wants me to send them the solutions...

Roll on adventure 2!

GOTCHA!

I started working with the wrong code at first, because I missed a tentacle....

So. What kind of Escapist Swag are we doing this for, anyway? :D

Ok, finally finished. Thank you to everyone who put hints up over the past five days, I wish I could have reciprocated, but I simply haven't the knowledge for it

Day 5 was mighty frustrating, I was trying the answer for ages, and all manner of variations. Gah! Although I'm pretty sure there should be a

in the title

Oh well. Time for brain rests now methinks

Again, thank you to everyone for the hints, I would have got nowhere without you guys. And thank you to the team for making such fantastic, if brain-melting, puzzles

Chrmike:
I've decided to throw out one more hint before I go to bed. And to make it lots of fun, it's a limerick!

Good luck to everyone and I hope you find this at least entertaining. :)

Mod Note - I approve of this method of clue giving :P

You shouldn't. I just gained +4 intelligence and +3 charisma without even looking closely at the picture.

But I'm incredibly grateful for this event... thank you so much for these incredible puzzles! You guys have done a fantastic job... these are truly some of the best I've ever seen.

Ok, I will be honest. Except for Day 1 Puzzle 1 I NEVER would have gotten ANY of these puzzles without the assistence of the fine (and not so fine) folks of the Escapist Forums. Excepting the EVIL EVIL EVIL mods.

Agreed!

Kudos to all who posted helpful hints.

And Shame on you Escapist for turning the brains of your loyal fans into so much gelatinous goop.

Wow! I made it! Well, thanks to the Escapist Staff for creating what was possibly the coolest ,and most difficult, puzzles ever.
To Landslide and ThyNameIsMud, who created the puzzles and to the Nerd Queen, Susan Arendt, who cheered us on.

And, of course, to my fellow Escapists who helped me along the way. As much as I would like to say I did it on my own thanks to my huge brain, it would be bull.

THANKYOU ESCAPISTS!

Damn. Day five has been as tortuous a puzzle as I think I can take. Today's puzzle has required leaps of logic, keen attention to detail and a little guess-work to find the solution. I would have overlooked a step or two along the path if not for some of the hints provided along the way. I was able to solve many of the puzzles without assistance, but a few, such as today's, required many minds.

Congratulations to the Escapist staff. While many felt that the leap of logic required by the final puzzle was too great, I think the fact that some of us made it goes to show that the puzzle was more insidious than sloppy. Good work.

can some one help?

First of all, many thanks to all for the extremely helpful hints. I would still be stuck on those accursed letter puzzles on days 1 and 2 if not for you.

Well, that was great! I have forgotten how much fun it is to solve clever puzzles, since there are so few adventure games nowdays.

Thank you again and efcharisto!

5-1 totally just got that with my second random guess

I've given myself a migraine trying to solve this one but I got there in the end, possibly through completely wrong reasoning but still somehow arriving at the right solution. Thanks chaps and chapesses for a right good brain breaking!

Wow, Day 5 really does hit like a sack full of bricks once you think about it the right way.
