A (Hitchhikers) Guide to Perplexcity by Me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbX3jHkd_0E

Done in the Hitchhikers guide style, and a little rushed.

Comments crits, and flame away.

What is perplexcity? Welll..you have to watch and find out.

Theres also a little puzzle in the video that I am sure this forum will get to the bottom off.

Cheers,

Darkflame

Very nicely done. Love the Earth drawing.

Just a small quible, though, the sound doesn't quite match the arrow when it gets to the 'Not Here' part and points to Earth. Might just be my PC, though,

probably not, unfortuntely the conversion to youtube seemed to cause a few codec problems.
Also, its hard to seak the video nicely, which makes my secret quest thing a tad harder to do.

Purple Sheep ~ That means your on the right track
Maybe you should...

Spoiler:
Pay attention to the time codes near the end. I added the timecodes to the video of the keyboard for a reason



Incidently, I appoligies that its so hard to seek in YouTube, does make the secret bit harder then I intended.

I still haven't done the second part of your puzzle DF. The first part seems much easier compared to this, mainly because of the stupid YouTube seek bar.

The hitchhikers guide being one of the most famous British books ever.....and perplexcity being an obscure but increasing popular ARG game.
(and ARG games themselves not being well known for that they are....)

Its no wonder your confused


Basically, Perplexcity is a world wide story/treasure hunt.
Websites, Phonecalls,Text Messages, Live events, and puzzle cards.
www.perplexcity.com for more info.
Its free to take part in the cube hunt, but they make money from saleing the puzzle cards. (think children's trading cards, but for intellectuals)

Perplexcity had a little competition to come up with a advert for the city.
So I made that video
