The black ARG
« on: August 18, 2017, 07:46:52 PM »
Alright so, on the r/ARG someone posted a link to this video, the reddit post was deleted but here was the video that was linked: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCM5xFDHcw8
I already decoded it and in the transcript for the annotation was another code that linked to this video:

Now the audio was The Crew Cuts - Sh Boom Sh Boom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9G0-4TWwew but reversed and lowered in pitch. After that, the Reddit post got deleted but I received this link shortly after with a message titled "play":

I know one of the files is for a doom map which I played but I can't make head or tails of what appears in the automap. Can someone move this to active since its pretty much past the discovered point?

Active is for when we have established whether something is actually a game.
Also, multiple people playing something helps.
I will look into it when I get back from work.

Any idea who sent you that last link?

I believe it might be the same guy who made the Reddit post.

One is indeed a Doom Map file, the other is a .wad file:

"Doom WAD is the default format of package files for the video game Doom and its sequel Doom II: Hell on Earth, that contain sprites, levels, and game data."

Not sure what this is about.
I don't have Doom on my computer.
