It all started four weeks ago with a spectacular water-show projection at the Bellagio, and now it’s come to an end. Finally, you can all stop drinking Red Bull, put away your Atlas, stop studying 16th century history and get some sleep.
What does Loki mean by “the next vanishing point”? Could we witness the first-ever online pseudo-alternative reality puzzle game sequel? It’s sure been popular enough to warrant another spectacular giveaway, you know, with all that money lying around in the Microsoft vault. I guess we’ll have to wait to find out in a few hours when the grand prize will be randomly selected and winner notified on the following day.
Maybe Loki didn’t really vanish…
Update: The correct answer’s to LOKI’s name was “Lorelei, Odessa, Kara, Ivy”. (Vanishing Point Wiki)
We created the Vanishing Point to reward the smartest minds (and communities) on the planet – and still we underestimated you. We used our smarts and our guile, not to mention money and connections and countless hours of time-and still you humbled us. We knew the terrain and barely gave you a map-and that didn’t stop you. We built puzzles that should have taken you days and you solved them in hours.
“Loki” is a genius: but you were far more brilliant. You were thought made fire. You were lightning.
Thank you for your work, your talent, and your dedication. It has been a privilege to witness: an honor and a delight.
