(I'm tired of typing in caps, so I'll type normally :p)

So this was a ARG for my next game, Paper Physics. I was inspired by Portal 2's ARG and by the Dropquest's minigames (Dropquest was a Dropbox event where you had to solve mini-games to get free space).

The solutions for the clues were the following:
1- See my current avatar's filename. (hence the ball on it, since it was the first clue)
2- With a photo manipulation software you had to use curves (for example) to clarify the image until you see the text.
3- The haiku pointed to my faux-company's twitter, where there's a tweet with the final letters on it.

As for the game: it's a physics puzzler with lots of level elements, such as windmills, gravity blocks and even bumpers. The objective of each level is to touch the checkmark blocks, using both timing and logic.


I originally started this game in February as a Flash game, but after a few weeks I went to another project. Only in July I started working in this game seriously with iStencyl, and now it's in a complete state and it's currently being reviewed by Apple.
And that's pretty much it, if everything goes smoothly the game should launch on 31st October with a lite version. The winners will get their code on launch day.
Thanks everybody for participating! Smiley

I might consider that. Since it's made with iStencyl I've simultaneously a Flash version, but I've to think about how I could market for the PC though.
