Then something about a game.

Really. This incredibly vague teaser isn't going to make me nearly as exited for whatever game its advertising as that simple VVVVVV video did for VVVVVV.

This is intriguing me. I've never been so brought in by an ad before in my life. No! I Must Not Let It Take Me! MUST NOT GIVE IN!!!!!!!!! Nah. It's probably not that bad.

It must be something pretty big though. I don't recall JiG ever advertising anything in this fashion before. I just hope that I don't have to pay for anything.

I think it's some kind of conspiricy to drive us all mad, or a spooky/kooky halloween prank. Either way, I don't think there actually is any game or interactive material coming November 16. I mean, why would they post about it so far ahead? Then again, they might post a an update on the What if? thing every day or every few days with a just a tiny bit more information to keep us hooked, before finally giving us the full answer on November 16. Anyway,thanks for listening/reading my long ramble/debate,and for putting up with my many "something/something"s. Oh, a Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy Halloween to you!!!!

There's an easy solution to step four:

Set your PC's system date to November 16.

The walkthrough is incomplete. You forgot the last step:

Come back to jayisgames.com on November 16.

And the step before that.

Ask a monkey/bear to time travel to November 16 to come back and tell you about it.

And I'm sure we forgot other steps. What if we can't finish the walkthrough to What if? November 16? What if we never finish the walkthrough?! What if the whole world blew up before November 16? What if the Interweb is compromised?

Thanks to JIG for posting my first walkthrough, YAAAAY. It took a lot of patience and stamina, but I pulled through without spoilers!

kenshiro,

I should have clarified. You can't finish until you've read every comment ever made on this game ever.

This may require some time-travelling and/or Googling, which, as we all know, can make these things frustrating for the casual gamer. Hang in there, though, it's totally worth it!

What if JayIsGames posted a teaser so devoid of content, that it made me predisposed to dislike the game? I find that good, promising games tend to contain content that's exiting to hear about in advance. What if the apparent lack of anything worth showing us made me assume this game isn't worth caring about?

Not that that's actually the case. But what if?

I'm sure November 16 will be here before we know it! I forgot about CGDC6 on purpose, and entries came up at a time when I was having a really bad day! It made my day so much better, hehe. :)
