"Thomas Sanatos" posted at a final message at C.I. thanking the community for their involvement with Iris.
- Good morning everyone.
- We just wanted to take a second at the end of the year to thank all of you for playing with us this past year. We are AKQA, the agency who worked with Bungie to create the IRIS ARG Characters and the Halo 3 BELIEVE experience.
- Our goal through all of this has been to expand the Halo world, making it possible for fans to keep playing even when they are not sitting with a controller in their hand. And thanks to gamers like you, both of this year's efforts turned out to be a huge success. In fact, you may have been too good at participating: there were moments back in IRIS where you were solving episodes just as fast as we were creating new ones. Your speculations were so solid in fact, that we included some of your ideas in the next steps of the campaign as well as in the back-story of the Believe characters.
- We hope it was as much fun for you to participate as it was for us to create.
- Also - the Halo 3 Believe site is currently up for the Flash Website of the year. If you have a moment, please link over there and click VOTE for Halo 3:Believe.
- The more people who hear about it, the more people we can get involved in Halo 3.
- Thanks for all the excitement, we will see you in multiplayer,
Terminals - Added page to document all the Terminals found in Halo 3, continuing the dialogue of the AI in Iris.
Believe - Video series intended as TV ads for Halo 3 begin September 14th - first video "Museum" available via games.yahoo.com (details)
Neill Blomkamp's shorts - Added a page to track Blomkamp's live action movie shorts
