The Interrogation of Mr. Bunny


| Comments (37) | Views (329)

ArtbegottiHere at the JiG Headquarters, we take challenges very seriously. When there's one donut left in the break room, it's usually Jay who wins it in the arm wrestling competitions. Dora usually sweeps the box hockey tournaments, and Tricky is surprisingly adept at solving crossword puzzles while hanging upside-down. But when a visitor stopped by HQ over the weekend and left us a challenge, we went berzerk.

Unfortunately, our efforts in finding the visitor's hidden treasure came up fruitless, not to mention eggless. So, being the genial and competitive folks that we are, we felt it only proper that the visitor, one Mr. E. Bunny, should spill any relevant information that we needed. We went straight into JiG HQ's infamous Room 214B (also the storage room for joye's muffin contest trophies) for a little grilling.

We've made a transcript of the interrogation, and we think there's enough information to locate where the final egg lies. It may look like Mr. Bunny clammed up and gave us no information, but in his own devious way, he's answered every question with a yes or no response. The question is, can you crack his code and find the hidden egg?

Take a look at the interrogation transcript and see what details you can wring out of his vague responses. If you can find the review page on which he hid his egg, submit its location AND an explanation of Mr. Bunny's code, along with your Casual Gameplay account name to [email protected] We'll give the first person to correctly crack the code plus four other randomly selected correct entries a prize for their efforts. As with all our contests, you must be at least 13 years of age to enter. Void where prohibited. You've only got until Friday, April 29th at 11:59 PM (GMT-5:00) to get your answers in, so get cracking!

Update:
Your investigations have proved fruitful, and we can release the answers! The egg was hidden on the review page for Mr. Bounce. And what was Mr. Bunny's code? The key was to remember that every answer had a yes or no response embedded within. Here, "yes" responses are represented by the letter Y appearing before the letter N in a response, while the "no" responses had an N first. If you followed this code, you would get five pieces of information:

  • The review was written by zxo
  • The game is similar to Breakout
  • The game is named for Mr. Bunny's "accomplice" (a bit of wordplay, there)
  • The game's developer is slightly "pixelated" (namely, Pixelate)
  • The game was reviewed in 2008

All of the other questions, which yielded "no" responses, were red herrings. In fairness, when selecting our winners, we accepted other explanations that didn't match the Y/N theory listed above, as long as they resulted in the five facts above being marked as "yes" responses, and the other eight as "no."

Congratulations! to the following winners:

  • dhaisud — was the very first person to send in the correct answer, and very shortly after we posted the contest. Excellent work! :)
  • Ditrix
  • Tahnan
  • A Game
  • schep
All winners have been sent their prizes. Thanks to everyone for participating! :)

So this game may or may not be written in 2009, review written by zxo, involve meat, made by nitrome, reviewed by psychotronic, similar to breakout, named after the easter bunny's accomplice, reviewed after May 2010, has slightly pixelated developers, is a racing game, written in 2008, reviewed by JohnB, or involve surgery.
happy hunting:)

This is confusing...

Are multiple entries allowed?

Okay, everybody else give up now, I found it.

(Did they buy it?)

(Why did you type that last part?)

(Who are you talking to?)

(This is starting to seem like a serious psychological problem.)

No luck so far.

I found the egg a while ago, but I think I'm stuck on the code. Oh well, I have studying to do.

Yeah, I found the egg, too, but that darn code..

This went way over my head. My moms right I AM a failure.

I think I got it :)

Who are Jiggy and Stephen Q. and what have they done to Mr. Bunny? He's innocent, I tells ya, innocent!
Seriously, Mr. Bunny and I are soul mates, and I've found the egg. He wouldn't want just anyone claiming the prize, no sirree. He only wants his soul mates to enter this contest. That means I'm gonna hafta open an account...?
Can you please tell me how I do that, Jay? Really, we bunnies aren't that technologically inclined. Our forte leans more toward sussing out the best parsley and carrot patches.
Thank you.

Yes! Another cryptic contest! I found the egg, but Mr. Bunny's code is evading all my attempts at cracking it. Alas, my paper beckons (not very invitingly, but it beckons all the same), so more concentrated effort must wait until tomorrow.

Reply

Definitely got it! I wonder if I beat A Game?

Reply

I think I got it, but... It's hard to tell. Based on what I think is the code, I can see a clear difference between the "yes" and "no" responses, but it's possible that I'm seeing something other than the intended pattern. I guess I'll just have to wait and find out.

Did anybody find the code first, the game second? Cuz I didn't.

Reply

I thought I worked out the code, then found the game through the code. But then my code broke when I found the page due to two statements.

I can *just* about explain one of them away, but the other one just doesn't fit. Unless...

Actually, I think the code may be more complex than I imagined...

I definitely broke the code and found the egg. Even after the code was solved, finding the egg was a huge chore!

...Wait, you're telling me that a few people might have solved it already?!

Reply

Tahnan: I'm not 100% sure I got it right, so there's definitely a chance that you beat me. My answer for the code makes sense to me, but who knows if it's actually what they intended?
Anyway, are we just going to find out who won sometime after Friday?

This was pretty easy to figure out, actually. But the question about the game being reviewed in 2009 has the wrong answer.

[No, it doesn't. ;) -Jay]

I've definitely got it, I think.

My theory about the code, matches up perfectly with the review page that I found.

No incorrect responses on any of the lines.

...oh and yes - I worked out the code first, and then found the egg.

A very easy search once I knew the right place to look.

childofsai April 26, 2011 6:10 PM

...oh and I was indeed able to solve the code before finding the egg.

So you send an email with the results? Hmm... This code is really hard. Only found one definite answer, which raises more questions. Sigh.

I feel like a dummy. Walkthrough please*.

*I know, I know. Kidding.

Kudos, childofsai! I definitely tried to work out the code first--I had a few ideas that didn't pan out, my favorite wrong pattern being...

There's an old summer-camp-type game where responses depend on whether the last letter of the question is in the first half or second half of the alphabet. Here, all of Mr. Bunny's responses that end in the first half of the alphabet end in E or G--that is, the letters in EGG. So it looked like a really good pattern: answers that end in EGG are "yes" answers, and the others are "no" answers. But that led to a contradiction in the answers, so it couldn't be right.

(The spoiler tag contains a wrong answer, so it won't remotely help you, but it's in spoiler tags anyway just to be safe, and if Jay thinks it needs to be deleted, that's cool.)

So in the end, none of my ideas panned out, and I decided it was easier to find the egg manually and retrofit a code to fit the necessary answers. I'm definitely impressed by people who worked out the code successfully and used it to find the egg.

Found the egg....but the code seems really tough to break...

Reply

I think I've cracked it! I've found a solution for the code that when used, leads you straight to [scrubbed], every time! Although admittedly, maybe the actual code was different and I've just found one that happens to fit here.

Contest is not over yet. It's only 10:30PM (GMT-5:00) right now.

There's still about an hour and a half to get your answers in.

Should we be expecting an email if we entered, only if we were correct, or only if we won?

ThemePark May 1, 2011 5:53 AM

Damn, I hadn't noticed that I had to explain how I found the answer as well. But my method still gave me enough of the yes answers to find Mr. Bounce.

I noticed that out of all the questions, the only one that was answered was the one about the accomplice. Figuring that it was not a game related question, but merely there to point you in the right direction, I came to the conclusion that all of the bunny's answers which contained a question must be yes answers and all the others no answers. Hence why I thought the question about it being reviewed in 2009 had the wrong answer.

Oops. I just read the update about this. Forget my last question ;)
