Crysis Viral: Update

So something finally happened with that Crysis viral. The sim card that came with the not-so-clever document was stuck in an old mobile, and left. Last night I checked and a text arrived, with an URL and a username and password. And yes, I’m typing through gritted teeth, perfectly aware that writing about it is exactly what they want me to do.

In what is quite possibly the dullest ARG ever, the site contains a couple of folders, in which is some gibberish, and an mp3 which you can listen to here. Though goodness knows why you’d want to. It sounds like Crysis background noise – weeee!

There’s lots of nonsense, all posted below for those who enjoy code cracking. I’m not at all clear what the goal is, so close to release, and so blatantly about Crysis. But they have my home address, and that’s a bit worrying. I prefer my insane advertising stalkers to have a bit more imagination and purpose.
