The recruitment drive

The recruitment drive for Defense Grid finally came to an end, after 100 people were recruited. We now have to wait for it to get processed. Hidden in the message is a line once again refrencing glyphs, and a 4 by 4 array of glyphs can be seen. Defense Grid Aperture Science login page password, derived from the glyphs (DNTFRGTBTTHLSRS, or don't forget about the lasers), was revealed to be "deadly lasers" (referencing a picture that Razer had posted on its Facebook page). Using the password "raspberryshortcake", derived from dadsredeploydinner.txt, the dadsdess.ert file was unlocked.

Instructions (Old, no longer relevant)

  • If you own the game, but have never played, DON'T WORRY, you don't need to play at all.
  • Go to the console on the main menu. The username/password is jsharman/ultraz7x4.
  • Enter the command "cd recruitment".
  • Run the two files there (id_scan and sign_up) and screenshot what you have (F12 in-game).
  • id_scan tells you your info which is tied to your Steam account.
  • sign_up attempts to register you, and if you are not what the program is looking for currently, it will tell you what it IS looking for. One of three cases can happen (In any of these cases, fill out the google docs form):
  • If you're a match, you get a quiz question. Make sure you let us know on IRC about it and we can help with the answer.
  • If you're not a match but someone on your friends list is, it will inform you of a 'colleague' being applicable (note: this person does not necessarily have to own the game, it appears)
  • If you're not a match and no one on your friends list is, it will say 'perhaps you can help us find someone who does'.
  • If your entry is not currently valid, please enter it into the form linked below so we can notify you when you are needed.
  • Until someone responds to the request, it does not change and no progress is made. This is why it's so important to have as many people signed up as possible, to speed up the process.
