Space Paranoids Online Fully Playable Tron Viral Game is Out
It all started in 1982 and now Kevin Flynn's Space Paranoids game is here today, fully playable online, courtesy of the viral marketing for Tron Legacy. We've been watching the countdown clock since last week and now the fictional Encom (I wish they were real) has launched a completely playable badass version of Space Paranoids, the game which oh so much of the Tron world is based on. Basically, you drive around in a little tank killing recognizers and other enemies until you beat each level. It's a lot of fun and a great way to kick back and pass the time all day long. I think there are secrets hidden on every level, but I can't find any.
To play, visit: spaceparanoidsonline.com. If you want to help move this viral along, be sure to start playing now and let us know if you find anything unusual or find any other hidden secrets in the game. Additionally, there seem to be a few more Tron Legacy viral bits to mention, including a very interesting (and awesome) virtual server created by Encom. I found a link to HelloFlynn.com in the discussion forum on Flynn Lives and when you visit it launches an Encom server like the same one seen in the teaser trailer (when he goes down to Kevin Flynn's secret room with the laser). Here's a better screenshot of that site:
The server shows a few photos of some concept art / lightcycle sketches and asks for "File Code" entries, one of which can be found in a caption. I saw a mention in the Unfiction forums that someone found a "hidden wall" inside the Space Paranoids game and found a barcode which scanned a number that was also a file. Maybe there are more of these barcodes and files hidden around the Space Paranoids game? Not sure, but if you're ready to join the hunt and help us find more, dive right in at spaceparanoidsonline.com and get to work killing recognizers! Stay tuned for updates on this part of the viral right here (to be added below).
Update #1: I've been following over at Unfiction as they break down more secret walls and find more viral codes and one of them they just unlocked is this incredibly badass photos (directly below) of what looks to be an older version of a lightcycle (not sure what exactly it is?). You can check out a much bigger version of it by clicking on the photo. It comes from the Sam Flynn server I talked about directly above and shows up when you enter the code: 888822039114. Check it out and stay tuned for more new Tron viral updates!
