Conspiracy and mystery keep us on our toes when it comes to information about Funcom’s The Secret World. Scouring the internet, I found another site that is alluding to a town that is featured in the game. This time, its through a normal Blogspot blog named “Monsters of Maine: An investigation into the cryptozoological and occult events occurring on Solomon Island.” At least someone knows how to do viral marketing correctly(I’m looking at you, Dante).
According to this mysterious blog, “The Palemen” are creatures that can be found in the sea off this coastal island town. The author of the blog seems to be setting up a story arc, with background on who the Palemen are, why its important, and of course why they need to be stopped. The best part? No one believes him that they exist, of course fitting right into the whole “secret world” and “conspiracy” shtick the game has going for itself.
You can check out the blog here. Read up on the back story of Solomon Island while following what happens to the crypto-investigator as the blog is updated. You got me hooked real good, Funcom. Way to go!
