MZFPK - A Machina tale
The day after valentines day the Ingress devs updated the MZFPK event page
Iti s no coincidence that this includes at least 4 passcodes, to ensure players get a certain media.
Which is just a Google search link
In the Google search is a link to a Spotify Playlist
Again, this is no coincidence that the artist pictured here looks like the enigmatic PA Chapeau.
One of songs in the play list is
"How about a nice game of chess?"
This is a quote from the 1983 movie "War Games"
If you haven't watched it, go watch it, as it is a classic.
Anyway, the final scene iconography is similar to Ingress, again I feel that this is no coincidence, and based on the story of War Games, fitting for Ingress.
If one watches the final scene carefully, there is a flashing code presented.
I thought, this is looking a lot like an Ingress passcode code.
Which I duly entered.
I tried multiple different variations, and was left empty handed.
I even tried a few variants as a web address to for the Ingress site, this too left me at a dead end.
The bread crumbs must mean something is to be discovered, however it was late at night and I had to go to sleep in order to get up for my day job.
So I leave this here in the faint hope someone else might have a bright idea what these bread crumbs lead to.
or perhaps MZFPK is a reference to Kryptos and the Berlin clock
MZFPK decoded becomes CLOCK. The anomaly image is a reference to the clock.
The medal reads 13:31 on the Berlin clock?
I only have found 3 media… how do we get all?
Reckon there is more to it.
The dev team wouldn't put more than 1 passcode in just to ensure players get the media.
Which strongly hinted that the search criteria on Google was just another bread crumb

There is definitely more to this than just a clock in Berlin
There are three that are hidden (but easily revealed) within the image and one that is in plain view (the date).
