Flynn Lives - Tron 2 Viral Kicks Off in San Diego Tonight

July 23, 2009

Tron 2 Viral

Just a few days ago we mysteriously received two tokens for Flynn's Arcade and we followed the start of what promises to be a great viral and ARG for Disney's upcoming Tron 2. Throughout that afternoon on Tuesday, we followed the clues and uncovered the phrase "Flynn Lives" (which seems to be a bigger part of this) and a series of interesting websites: and If you click on the bouncing spider icon at the bottom of the Flynn Lives site, you'll see a countdown. It expires at 9:30PM on Thursday and has now been updated with a meet-up location in San Diego. Looks like something big kicks off tonight!

Here is the location: "Meet us at the cul de sac near the corner of 1st and J when the numbers run out. You'll know who we are." You can map it on Google Maps if you'd like (conveniently it's right outside of my hotel!). If you're in San Diego, we suggest you take part in this, as this could be pretty awesome. Of course, we'll be covering this and updating it often as possible, but considering we're going to be on the ground ourselves, a post on what takes place might not come until later at night. If you're not in San Diego but want to help out, hit up and let us know what happens (in the comments below) when the countdown hits 0!

    the way things are going in holywierd today I'm surprised a re-boot wasn't done. with that said I believe the original vision of a film is "usually" the best, and I have been a tron fan since childhood. long live Flynn!

    This whole deal reeks of 42 entertainment (the same folk who did The Dark Knight viral, and the Halo ARGs. If those are any indication of what to expect...expect great things. Personally, i'm looking for some always. =P
    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! This will never beat the orginal.

    Excuse me, I forgot a bit. The website also says: "It's hard to believe that it's been 20 years since Kevin Flynn went missing. In honor of this great digital pioneer, we will be getting together to renew our commitment to find out what happened to him and celebrate his legacy." Sorry!
