New LOST ARG: Find 815
In case you haven't heard by now, there's a new LOST alternate reality game (ARG), much like The LOST Experience. This game is called Find 815, and it all starts at flyoceanicair.com.
NOTE: The rest of this post includes clues that I discovered within the game, and may be considered minor game spoilers.
At present, flyoceanicair.com contains an Oceanic Air promotional video that was recently hacked by a guy named Sam. He's trying to find out what happened to Oceanic Airlines Flight 815. During the hacked video, the text FIND815.COM appears. Find815.com seems to be where the majority of the game will be played.
I noticed this on the wall in the first video at find815.com:
This may provide clues as to where Oceanic Flight 815 crashed. Could these be latitude and/or longitude coordinates? (Compare with my Google Earth plottings of possible crash sites.)
Sometime within the past few hours, a new link appeared on Find815.com to a Flickr group. There was already one strange photo uploaded to this group, and it's been there for a couple days, even though the Flickr link was just posted on the game site. This could indicate that the photo is part of the game, or it could just be that someone found Flickr group early and is trying to play tricks. It's an inverted-color image. Here's what it looks like with the colors inverted back:
