"LOST Mini-Break Activity #3"

More LOST fun.
DarkUFO posted about a new LOST interactive area on ABC's website, with a quickie game to play and a sweepstakes to win tix to Comic Con. You play the game by locating LOST items. Cheats are posted at DarkUFO if you get stuck.

From DarkUFO: "A Unique Online Environment Where Fans Can Explore “Lost” and View Exclusive Sneak Peeks of Upcoming Episodes. Fans Can Also Enter for a Chance to Win a Trip for Two to the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con. ABC.com today launched LOSTscape, a unique, engaging, immersive environment where fans can explore and interact with iconic items from the hit series “Lost.” Fans can also view 34 clips from the show in which the items were used, as well as enjoy sneak peeks of upcoming original episodes not available anywhere else. In addition, they can enter for a chance to win a trip for two to the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con to attend the “Lost” panel in person."

The biggest trick so far is trying to figure out how to enter the contest. Clicking on one of the items (randomly chosen each time you play) is supposed to trigger the entry form, but so far no one has seen a form yet. ABC must be still working out the bugs.

i think it's something to tide us over till the episodes start again

BUT

all the items lead to videoclips, i'm hoping there's a easter egg clip with info about the finale or something =p

Did you do the dragging of the key to the suitcase, and dragging the TNT to the Swan? I had to use the cheat sheet to get those two. And did you click on Vincent when he pops up? Nothing happens, but he goes onto your list.

Capcom: I believe I did enter the contest on a form (after I registered). When I tried it again, after playing the game again and "finding" the shotgun, it said I had previously entered and only one entry per person is accepted. So I guess it's working.

WV: PTNECK! LOL

Capcom,

Love the blog, and have been checking every day just to see the "image of the day"!

Best of luck on the sweepstakes to everyone.

Tx PGT! :-x Can you tell that retirement in a new town where I have no new friends yet is getting kind of boring for me now? I've got too much time to blog, heheh.

Yes, good luck to everyone! I wonder how many people they will pick. I just scanned over the rules and such, so I didn't notice if they just pick one or a few. Hopefully they will pick peeps who reeeeeally love the show, not just part-time watchers.

I only found 32 items but it let me fill out the entry form.

Excellent! Yes, it finally kicked in properly. My nephew and I played it four times (only because he wanted to) and the pop-up for entering never appeared. The next time I played that night, it popped up for me. Whew.
