Secret World Legends’ Moons of Madness spinoff gets a creepy ARG

    
5

Halloween is right around the corner, and while Secret World Legends fans are still in a holding pattern for actual new content in that horror ‘verse, they can at least take a sideways hop into Funcom’s Moons of Madness when it releases later this month.

But if you can’t wait that long for the Secret World spin-off game, there’s a website that emerged to draw players into the setting. That’s right, it’s time for another ARG, a Secret World tradition. On the site CyranoStory.com, players can look — and listen — to a number of creepy clues as they try to navigate deeper and deeper into the site itself.

The community is only starting to figure out the secret path through this visual and audio experience, so why not give it a crack and solve it for the Massively OP team? You can save your progress through the site via Steam, which hints at the possibility of an in-game reward for solving it.

Well, at least we can always rely on Alice & Smith to produce new content.

They have trained me well enough so far for me to get through the first round of this ARG. We’ll see how well I can keep up.

Nah, i’m kinda tired of Funcom’s “Hirezesque” methods of managing their games ( namely: make them, keep them afloat and use them to finance a new venture so on and so forth ).

It is like the SWL ARG in that parts of it are released over time.
I’d be happy to give you the answer so far :)

Spoiler
The first moon leads to 3 glyphs. Each glyph reveals a picture. The clues directly relate to Aphrodite, Ares and Harmonia (and their equivalents like Mars, Venus, Moon, etc). Typing these names gets you some creepy whispering.

Phobos is the actual answer, which reveals another glyph with another clue.
Alone and Fear and a few other words typed will cause more creepy whispering. The actual answer is sleep. You will be asked a question. Answer it and you’ll get an audio message and Orochi NDA.

Exit out and a new moon is lit up, but it asks you to come back later.

PS. The site works a bit better in Edge as it tends to hang badly in Chrome.

There are a couple more things revealed by the NDA and such, but they don’t seem relevant yet.
