The Secret World is Funcom's next MM... wait, where are you going? Oh, the Funcom thing. Right.
Anyway, it's a dark modern / horror MMO that is finally starting to pick up speed. You have to answer secret questions to (what looks like) get into the beta, or at least get a beta code.
Now, you can watch the video and then try to find the website then research the answers... or you can shortcut it.
A pattern emerges. What is it? - Flower of life
Find us, and you'll find the answer we seek - 6284968128
Invoke our true name - Melissonomoi
Seek out the place of our birth - Delphi
Whose time is it - Kronos
This is where we meet, when the time is right - Venice
Then click the symbols in the following order:
Moon - Mercury - Venus - Sun - Mars - Jupiter - Saturn
No guarantees, but it looks to be one of the more interesting MMOs coming out. Eventually. Perhaps.

I think I remember this from a few years ago. I, and a lot of us, were quite honestly interested and I went through a few puzzles until it slowed down and we stopped really getting info. Good to see its still around, may have to look back into it.
I'd rather not have to complete stupidly hard questions to be allowed to sign up, and still only have a slim chance of getting into beta.
I already signed up (when I posted on this thread), but this has been bothering me since the game was first Virally marketed on the Net. Not the , "getting into Beta" part, but the fact much of the game could be solving puzzles. I don't mind using my head, I'd like to think I have some smarts, but these kinda puzzles could potentially take me awhile to solve. Mind you, I could either wait for solutions to be posted or do some web searches myself, but this potential aspect of game play could be a bit "off-putting" if it is overdone.
And there is a danger, while a certain type of player could be attracted to this (Cool points given) the majority could decide to go back to WoW (profit lost for FunCom).
