Default For fans of the TDK viral!

My insane compilation site is complete! It gives a detailed rundown of every event in the TDK ARG, how we discovered things, and has every photo/video/sound file I was able to scrounge up online.

Basically, it's a more user-friendly and visually more awesome (and "in-game" ) version of the Wiki. And it contains live download links, natch.

Visit it at http://www.whysoseriousredux.com/

Thanks for the great responses everybody! I sent the link to a few of my formerly at 42E and they were like, "OMG THIS IS SOOO COOL!" so I'm on a high right now.

Ok, I keep searching every page for easter eggs, hiddens links, and clues to something else!

What's behind the text on the blah, blah, blah page?

What's the name of the html file? It's pretty boring though, there's more fun stuff on the credits page.

That poster is crazy! I'll look forever and probably never find myself.

I didn't do that, that was a fun thing that some put together as a thank you for the fans.

There are other things too. Keep clicking.

Very Very Nicely Done!

There's also a puzzle in the source code, if you care to do a little work.

I loved the page full of memes Anita. It's fantastic. Senor Bale everywhere! Hahaha. And the one of Bale describing his beatdown of Supes is still so epic.

I've been meaning to ask, by the way, where/how you got the Joker font for the website. It looks like (scratch that... it probably is, LOL) the exact font 42 used two years ago. Maybe I was just out of it, but did a font file ever surface? Or is it somehow available online?

I actually tried using several real fonts to use as Joker's handwriting, but eventually just found it easier to handwrite it myself with a pen/tablet and Photoshop. (I mean, I already use a pen and tablet for everyday use for with my dekstop computer soooo.....) That's probably what 42E did as well, honestly.

If you look at it carefully, it looks different from 42E's and even started to look different within the same page after I'd had some practice.

Some of the font work still shows up in some places, though, like the header and the footer text is a real font, because I couldn't write that small and still have it be readable. Once I'm back home I'll let you know what it is.

Ahh okay. Cool. I had always figured that 42E had someone doing the handwriting for them, but what threw me off was that the font on your site looks super similar to the Joker writing used. Looking closely now that you mention it, I can see some subtle differences, but still, I must say, you did a hell of a job. Had me fooled, obviously. Very nice work.

That would be most kind of you. No rush at all. Thanks though. I appreciate it.

I also feel compelled to put the link to your site in my sig, because more TDK viral fans should see it - it's that good. The virals were such a surreal and unifying experience, and I really do think you've done a fantastic job of not only documenting it, but creating a way for us (well...me at least) to relive it in certain ways (mostly good ole nostalgia). Would you be opposed to me putting it in my sig?

Sure!

I remember the font in the Jokerized footer is called Cocaine Sans that I got from http://www.dafont.com. All of the Joker fonts I used is from that site, because it rocks. There were others but I don't remember the name of them...

Thanks for that. And yeah, dafont is a great website. I use it quite a bit as well. Very handy.
