A Blast from the Past

A Blast from the Past

Today’s jigsaw is a blast from the past.

It was taken in March 2007 and shows me lying on a Relic hammock, designed by Baron Grayson, in my first home, a richly textured castle tower created by Kelindra Talamasca. I have Mystikal hair in ringlets that looked like painted woodshavings (and I adored), and a pale, pale skin from Starley Thereian.

It’s an image you should all be familiar with – it forms the first part of the Prim Perfect picture strap (look up at the top of the page). It’s one we’ve had since the very beginning but not for much longer – and you’ll find out more about that on the blog today.

But for now – we have a jigsaw! And just when you thought things were getting easier … we have a cruel crazy puzzle!

The Seraph Club in Seraph City

The Seraph Club in Seraph City

At the end of season party for The Blackened Mirror, we held draws for all special games that we have been running throughout Season 1. The prize for each of these games is a chance to appear as a character in the world of The Blackened Mirror, not on the show, but referenced in The Blackened Mirror materials!

We will not reveal answers here, as people will still be able to play the games on the web!

The questions (and winners) were as follows:

From Episode 1 – the A Day in the Life of Harland Quinn game
As part of the clue in the diner (where we showed a copy of The Daily Prim newspaper, with its racing news), we asked:
What links Quinn’s bet with a Broadway musical?

The very first person to get this right won the chance to appear in The Blackened Mirror world. This was Kyle Beckett, who chose to become a good character and a reporter on The Daily Prim newspaper.
But we continued the game till the end of the season, and the winner was:
Chris Collins

Harland Quinn - Private Investigator

Harland Quinn – Private Investigator

From Episode 2: Secrets from Quinn’s past
This game was first launched at the HP Lovecraft Festival in Second Life, where a special playbill was located. It was subsequently included as part of the jigsaw game associated with Episode 3. We asked:
Tell us the connection between the poster, the newspaper report and a famous Hollywood film about the world of theater …
No-one has been able to answer this question correctly!

From Episode 4: Death in Velvet Game
In this game, readers (and later listeners) were able to find the first three parts of Death in Velvet, a special Harland Quinn short story written by David Abbot, the author of The Blackened Mirror. They then had to tell us who the murderer was (and how they dunnit too!).
The winner was:
Orpheus Angkam

From Episode 4: The Link between the Seekers of Truth and a famous 1930s novel (and film)
This game asked players to find outwhat linked Episode 1.4 of The Blackened Mirror with a famous novel of the 1930s, made into a very famous film, by the author of Goodbye Mr Chips and Random Harvest.
The winner was:
Garnet Psaltery

From Episode 5: The Police Report game
This was part of an inworld game that asked people to trace copies of the police report that revealed what had been happening in Seraph City while Quinn had disappeared after the Unpleasantness at the Java Jive. One of the places people visited on the Hunt (or through the inworld quiz) was a rather exclusive apartment block, which had a doorman … and we asked:
Why is the name Carlton Garfield a very appropriate one for a doorman?
The winner was:
Maeve Everest

Quinn and Co face a mystery

Congratulations to all our prize winners!

We will be contacting Chris, Orpheus, Garnet and Maeve shortly to find out whether they want to be good or bad characters and how they can best be incorporated into the world of The Blackened Mirror!

Temasek

Temasek

To accompany yesterday’s Designing Worlds programme (which is now available on treet.tv), we have for today’s jigsaw one of the beautiful photographs of Temasek by Wildstar Beaumont that were featured on the show.

Temasek is a representation of Singapore in the virtual world of Second Life, owned and conceived by Veritas Raymaker, to give people a taste of Singapore old and new – with elements of the history, culture, geography and economy of the island state. We had great fun – and learned a lot – exploring the island. We hope that you will too!

But before you view the programme … here’s a jigsaw to tackle!

Trouble in the Java Jive!

Trouble in the Java Jive!

There’s been trouble at the Java Jive in Seraph City … something has sent the statue of a burlesque dancer crashing onto a table.  Or was it someone who did that? Certainly there’s a man down – unsconscious on the floor. Amd a beautiful woman dashes forward to grab something from the neck of the statue … something precious to her. Meanwhile, the patrons of the Java Jive stand around, gasping in horror …

Yes, today’s jigsaw is a picture from the treet.tv series, The Blackened Mirror. And it’s connected to the the fun noir game that’s starting this weekend.

You see, that trouble in the Jave Jive sparked a police investigation that has been going on behind the scenes while our main characters were off having adventures elsewhere. And now you can follow that investigation, and maybe win some prizes …

And, in the mean-time of course, you can do the jigsaw!

The Blackened Mirror trailer has now been released, and you can see it on treet.tv, on YouTube, on the Blackened Mirror website and … well, here, actually!


But the trailer is, of course, only the start.

You can visit the website and catch up on news about the show.  You can also find out more information about different aspects of the story and the characters – you might even find a few clues buried that will help you with the hunts and puzzles that will be associated with the show.  And you can join the forums to take part in discussions about the characters, the plot – and, of course, the trailer!

Over the next few days, we’ll be releasing more information – and new ways to connect with the characters and the story.

Our plan is to make The Blackened Mirror a whole new media experience – with immersion, interactivity, integration and impact. It’s a tall order, we know – but with you along for the ride, we believe we can get there.
