'Are You Fit to Serve?' Intriguing Viral for Bond's 'Skyfall' Launches
"Are you fit to serve?" That's the big, bold black and white question on this brand new mysterious viral site located at a random IP address. There's nothing else on except a "Royal Secret Intelligence Service" logo, in connection with MI6, which runs the 00 branch. So how do you get in and what does it all mean? Well, thanks to FS reader Zane for linking me to a Reddit reveal of this new 007 viral ARG. Once you speak the secret password into your mic for "aural identity", the page will forward to a computer terminal which introduces a "British Intelligence Officer Exam" with questions, virtual missions and more. Are you ready?
To enter the site, you have to click over to http://188.8.131.52 and speak the passcode "God save the Queen" into your mic to gain access. From there you'll be prompted to provide answers to the computer to take the British Intelligence Officer Exam. It's split into 5 sections to quiz potential officers. "In each one you will be asked to guide a simulated agent through difficult tasks while under duress in the field." Have fun, but remember: "Recruitment is not guaranteed. This is only a test." It was found via an ad from Reddit.
"The recruitment process you are entering is highly classified. You are not to talk about this experience with anyone. Her Majesty's Secret Service and MI6 will not acknowledge the existence of this website, this exam or any connection to you." Whoops! Now MI6 is going to hunt me down. For more info on how to progress and the end results, check out Unfiction or Reddit's comments. We'll update this once we have more details on the full ARG and where it's ultimately heading with recruiting these agents. Let us know how far you get!
Skyfall is being directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Jarhead, Revolutionary Road, Away We Go), from a script by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Skyfall will once again star Daniel Craig as James Bond 007, along with Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench as M, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace with Ben Whishaw. You can also follow the official twitter @007 for updates as well, they've been tweeting photos and more. Columbia Pictures, Eon Productions and MGM have Skyfall set to hit US theaters on November 9th coming up soon.

how do you get past the bomb in the lobby? I threw the phone in the trunk of the guy I followed but couldn't figure out what to do with the image on my tablet after connecting it to the bomb.

This game is easy as fuck, but sometimes the computer doesn't understand what I'm trying to tell it. (: Fun game!
