Join the Search for Kevin Flynn All Around the World Today!
Today is the day. The binary countdown clock on the Flynn Lives Zero Hour viral website for Tron Legacy has just expired at 8AM PST and some kind of game is getting ready to launch in the 25 cities listed. The site was first discovered last week when physical bit pieces were sent out to numerous people around the world. Now it's time to get under way as a brand new page with all kinds of new details and a huge grid containing 66 code boxes has appeared on the Zero Hour site. Some cities have an address and additional info listed, but not all seem to be available at the moment. Get ready to join the search for Kevin Flynn. Updates below!
I've added a screenshot for the big new grid on the Zero Hour site below. We're not sure how to get codes or who the "Field Operatives" are beneath all this, but I'm excited to find out more. The actual FlynnLives.com website has been updated and if you want to get involved in this I suggest you sign-up right now on the site.
To get an idea of what's going on, I checked out Chicago's info and it's basically just a sheet with an address (for Union Station) that says: "You have entered the Challenging Stage, find the gamer in the Flynn Lives t-shirt." It also says the password is "Easter Egg." So it looks like you'll have to be the first person at each address, say the password to the gamer somewhere in that area, and get whatever he gives, like a code, which you can put on the website to unlock something eventually. The only problem is that we need 66 of these, so it's going to be quite a challenge (and time consuming) to get all of them, but we'll do our best!
We're already setup and ready to participate in this in Los Angeles as it goes down, whenever that may be today, so stay tuned for updates via Twitter while we're on the road and a big update on everything that took place once it wraps up. You can also talk strategy and more in the comments below as we'll be doing our best to keep this same post updated with new info as it's discovered online. End of line. Flynn Lives!
Update (9:56AM PST): First report coming in from someone who picked up the package from Boston. The user is @Avatrix on Twitter, said they got "a phone and a drop (wallet w/ Tron cards, Flynn arcade tokens, codes and newspaper articles)" and called the number for verification. So it sounds like if you get there first you get to pick up a phone and some sweet Tron Legacy / Flynn Lives swag to go along with it. Waiting for photos to be posted and more information from other people. There is also a new photo being revealed on the grid on the main Zero Hour site (as seen above). That looks like it might be a new poster.
Update (11:27AM PST): We've started collecting a few reports from those who have picked up packages from some of the cities that are open so far. One report comes from Miss Selector in the comments, who picked up the package in Paris, France. She received a phone and had to call an agent who then gave them directions to another location to find the wallet (seen directly above) which had a few pieces of Kevin Flynn news articles, vintage 1981 collectible Tron cards (with the code on them), and Flynn's Arcade tokens. You can see another video of a pick-up here. Looks like it's a quick and simple first come, first serve pick up.
But we're not really sure what all this means yet. We know that the grid is revealing a photo (a new poster?) on the Zero Hour site every time a pick-up is made in one of the cities. And we know people are getting cell phones. But what happens after that? Is there more to this? Hopefully we'll know more soon so stay tuned!
