There’s more fun noir associated with the latest episode of The Blackened Mirror with more puzzles and games.
Remember those suspicious types who were after Quinn, Alais and Biggins in the Java Jive in Episode 2? Are they the same ones as the palookas who busted into to Quinn’s office (prior to Episode 5)? Our new game gives you the chance to find out – and win prizes too!
And there’s a special Bonus Prize too.
What It’s About
The police have had reports of a disturbance at the Java Jive, and they’re going to look into it.
As they travel across Seraph City, they interview witnesses, who give them information about the suspects – and also give them clues about the next location.
Unfortunately, through a bizarre carelessness, they manage to leave a copy of their reports behind in each location, where you can find and read them – either by exploring the locations in Second Life, or – on the web – by answering some questions
1) In Second Life
Find the police reports.
Each of the reports is in a special file/book hidden in five key locations. Your job is to travel around Seraph City, find the reports and bring them back to the police station.
Once you are there, if you can enter a codeword in the special chest, you’ll gain a reward dear to the heart of any good police officer. Each report you find will contain one letter in the password – when you reach the police station, just click on the chest and give the correct password (the letters you discovered, arranged to form a word) and you will get your reward.
And another reward is you get to read the reports – and find out more about the story!
A special treat for a good investigator!
