Perplex City Information

Game Overview

Season 1: The Receda Cube was stolen from the Academy Museum in a daring heist. Through clever use of Puzzle Cards sent to Earth by Sente Kiteway, as well as deucedly clever gumshoeing by everyone involved, we discovered Violet Kiteway, Sente's daughter, stole the cube to protect it from The Third Power.

Season 2: After foiling V at the Radio 1 Big Weekend, Mind Candy announced a premature end to what promised to be a good set of stories.

Hot Topics

  • The Djinn virus, which the card is about, infected Keys around the city, causing 750 million Lecks of damage.
  • All this havoc was caused by Redward Price, an aspiring young Academy pupil with something to prove.

Perplex City, Season 2: Cancelled indefinitely.

I'm overwhelmingly sad about all this. Absolutely calamitous.

I was just about to edit Template:Season2, which says "A million stories, yet to be told." I was going to sadly change it to something like "A million stories, we'll never know," or "A million stories, hung out to dry." Those seemed sort of bitter. "A million stories, secreted away" sort of romanticizes it too much, and "A million stories, a million tears" seemed downright lame.

So I was thinking, then, on conversations I'd had with Andrea earlier. She was telling me about the last updates, and how she was sort of sad about having to make a new archive page, just to fFill it with all these sad things. Someone suggested she just slap it up and call it done, but she decided, no. Love Perplex City, right to the bitter end. It deserves better than any kind of maltreatment. And she's right. To piss all over it now would be an utter and complete dis-service to everyone and everything.

Here's my point. The wiki will stay up indefinitely. And as the rest of the puzzle cards come out, we will endeavor to scrutinize and calculate the subtle intricacies which have gone into them, just as we always have. We will do no such thing as markup pages with gloomy messages or portents of tragedy. The city is not dead. The city lives on in all of us. We, the players, you and I, made it what it is. Really. It is our job, our duty, to preserve and catalog the honor and history of Perplex City.
