Alien Invasion Conspiracy: Hoax or ARG?

Creepy voicemails, coordinates and people making it into conspiracies.

As I don’t believe in conspiracies, it leaves two options:

Hoax of ARG?

What do you think?

My bad, forgot to paste the link.
Not sure what it was, but googled and found articles about it.
(Still believe it’s a hoax.)

This is near the end of the web page which makes me think it is a game.


However, there are indications that the messages are part of an alternate reality, a complex puzzle similar to Cicada 3301, which ran for years before it was reportedly cracked in 2014.

A Twitter account called 914, run by someone with the handle @LunarrRabbits, has a pinned tweet dated March 17 which suggests that might be the case.

It reads: “This Event is no where related to catastrophic events, 18 april is definitely safe, all other accounts are impersonating, reason to hold this event is to help people solve an upcoming global cicada event, reason to hold this event is to aware people with knowledge (sic).”

×This Event is no where related to catastrophic events
× 18 april is definitely safe
×All other accounts are impersonating
×reason to hold this event is to help people solving a upcoming global cicada event
×reason to hold this event is to aware people with knowledge
