What should I do with obducted.com?

Postby talldarkmystere » Sun Nov 03, 2013 1:39 pm

Hi everyone!

In the midst of a fangasm this weekend, I ended up registering obducted.com.

For now, it is redirected to obductiongame.com, but I would like to utilize it as a fan portal, similar to what MYSTobsession and URUobsession were.

I've reached out to Rand informing him of the registration, and offering to utilize the domain for ARG puzzle purposes. I've yet to hear back.

So - I figured I'd let the cat out of the bag, and ask the community here for suggestions. What would you do with the domain? What would you like to see?

I've already begun fiddling with some ideas for puzzle related things.

Have a totally serious scientific treatise on plate tectonics with subduction, obduction, orogeny, etc, etc - all of it. With 8"x10" glossies and topological maps of the continents and ocean floors from various "ages," beginning with Pangea and Panthalassa. The name "Gondwanaland" sounds real cool, and a little silly, so make sure to include that too just to make fun of it. But somehow use that as an ARG in a way that leads to the "real" (fun) stuff about Obduciton the game. An ARG leading to another ARG would be like the volcano that hides access to the Cavern. ;)

My personal favorite T-shirt about plate tectonics:

"Subduction leads to orogeny."

Thanks, I did. I've also tweaked the page a bit more, and linked it in my signature.

The stuff I've been putting up there are mostly the results of my own experiments with attempting to programmatically derive clues. Some of it has turned into... art.

Haha, cool site.

You should see if you can use some crazy CSS3 parallax scrolling to make them move around :mrgreen: http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menu/css3-parallax.html

Yeah, I played around with Skrollr previously, but it can't really animate the positions. I was able to animate the colors for the svg, but that was it. I'd have to use JS to animate them.

Oh dear, I think I spent too much time staring at shades, I'm seeing spots all over the place :shock:
