Next-gen XBOX teaser campaign: Ourcolony.net

Gamespot.com has the story. Seems similar to ilovebees.com but the "prize" is XBOX2 glimpses and crap. A little obscure but I enjoy reading other people's discoveries. Knock yer selves out.....

Yeah, I just read this over at Gamespot as well. Apparently there's a need to form "colonies" with others; I've entered the word that should get me further into the site, but I get the ErrorPage response "The Colony is growing quickly. Please be patient."

So if anyone gets through and knows how to start a "colony," count me in! Just lemme know what I gotta do to join in.

I love these viral marketing thingies...

I got the invalid entry as well when trying to sign up for the Dvdtalk colony under the number you gave as a password. Try to sign up for it again or somesuch, i'm really excited about playing another one of these - the ilovebees one was awesome. I still have all the wav files burned to like 6 cds to listen to in the car as a radio drama.

I was able to get in with the information Pbear posted. Loser128 is my name. Nothing else to do though. It said we need to grow the colony.

It looks like you get 10 points for every person that signs up for you colony, 10 points for each challenge that is answered.

Grrr... it still own't let me sign up. It gets to the part where you have to retype the #'s in red to verify you are a human and it says i'm typing the wrong numbers every time. In spite of what the page believes, i can read
