Atlantis, Shaken, Not Stirred *

An Alarming Adventure of Acute Attacks
AKA Explosive Decompression Accompanied by Tectonic Plate Movements †

The Narrator wrote:As you are whisked away from Wonderland, you hear a voice: "The answer is in Atlantis."

Well, crap. You better bring a snorkel.


What is it?

  • A Monkey-Shark Production
  • A lost cause city
  • A mythical magical kingdom (sans rainbows and unicorns)
  • An MST3K-like experiment

How do I play?

  1. Solve the puzzles
  2. Find the ZPM
  3. Don't release the kraken
  4. Told you not to do it
  5. Swim like crazy
  6. Use the ZPM
  7. Ask for hints here (but don't expect serious answers at first)

When is it?

  • Right now
  • The game will be closed after the first 3 contestants solve the quest

Rules:

  • Don't share the answers
  • Don't share the answers
  • If you do share the answers and we find out about it, you will get a Zeus Ban
  • Ask questions here freely, but offer no more than vague hints

Rewards:

  • 1st place: 5000 WRZ$
  • 2nd place: 2500 WRZ$
  • 3rd place: 1000 WRZ$
  • Everyone else: a sense of accomplishment and the joy of having found a mythical submerged city. And a lifetime supply of anchovies.

Follow Plato's Clues!


* May be submerged
† Not to be confused with bowel movements
‡ Basically, we will smite you

And so it begins...

A few tips/notes:
  • Don't drown
  • Don't expect a whole lot of help
  • Hints are pretty to look at
  • You can bite a shark back (not that it will help you much)
  • Report any bugs you find to wecouldntcareless@notarealemail.com

Are we calling it zed-pee-em or zee-pee-em

I miss Stargate :(

Depends. Are you Meredith? --n0tty

That's what I'm trying to decide, whether to embrace my inner Sam or my inner Meredith.

Try for your inner Dex. :lol: --n0tty

I get a mass of snow.

Clicked everywhere. Nothing happened.

Bored now.

Build a snowman. --n0tty

If you put on 3d glasses and look at the screen from an angle of 30° whilst standing on your head it may help... but there again it might not :lol: :lol: :lol: -sher


Little busy right now, I have to organise my socks draw.

I can already tell that this one is going to be harder :lol: :lol:

Nooo.... We'd never make a puzzle harder... Not us. Nuh huh! --n0tty

Not so much harder rather a quantum tango away from the cha cha cha -sher Lord of the dance pranks ] :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

If you're talking about the one with the static, you just need to find an entrance. --n0tty

I still don't know how to get past that one, so you're on your own now. :lol: --n0tty

Is it too early to ask for a clue for q5. I think I know what the first two mean but I'm having many problems with the others.



:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: -sher

PLEASE!!! I was ill all yesterday. If I get a clue I won't puke on you!

Early weekend update
  • It seems like there is a lot more interest in this particular Monkey-Shark production
  • The percentage of wrong answers is only 75% which is rather impressive
  • If you are stuck on the glitchy snow image, it's something you can stumble through (that's a hint)
  • If you are haunted by the seer and he's scrambling your mind, I'd recommend taking a look at things from a different perspective
  • If you are stuck on strange writing, we didn't write that
  • If you are stuck on a GIF with a lot of images, just say what you see
  • If you haven't started Atlantis, what are you waiting for?
  • If you have food, we cannot be bribed, but we'll still take it

Thanks, I'd forgotten the bit that came first.

I'm sure Q6 will make sense eventually, but at the moment it looks like something we would come up with on the Hand Me My Pants game :D

Atlantis
All the little amusements niggle the itinerant searchers
-sher


Annoyingly trivial labyrinths and naughty tricks, including symbols.

We have to start with the easy ones. --n0tty

They're all easy when you know the answer :D (and I really enjoyed doing the first one, especially as the beeps were annoying the hell out of everybody around me :lol:)

GAH! I'm stuck on the strange writing at Q5!!!! I've been staring at those symbols for literally HOURS trying to make sense of what they mean!!!!!
NEED MORE HINTS!

Or, please post the answers once the contest is over. It's driving me nuts to know what those symbols mean.

We always release answers with explanations at the end, but don't give up just yet. These things go on for weeks (usually over a month). --n0tty
