Now for the details... System Failure was designed and is inspired by our love of Survival Horror Video Games and Classic Horror Films and is intended to scare the crap out of you. We hope you enjoy it, but there are some things that may help you enjoy it even more.

LIGHTING & SOUND:
The build was designed for Darker & Night time Windlight Settings AND a Mesh Enabled Viewer. We have set the sim windlight to what we believe is optimal for the game with shadows enabled, but we also ran through in SL Default windlight at MIDNIGHT and it looked great. Choose what works best for you.
Please Turn your Master Volume at least 3/4 of the way up as there are many sounds you will want and need to hear and turn your Music Volume way down or off.

THE HUD:
We have provided a GAME HUD to wear. This HUD IS NECESSARY to play and complete the game. Please wear it before leaving the Front Desk or you will not be able to play. You may need to adjust it a bit to fit the resolution of your screen.  If you need to leave and come back at any time, the hud should save your collected items. Sadly SL can be a pain sometimes and you may lose your saved items if you crash. Setting your own landmarks is encouraged in case you lose your place.

MOVING & TELEPORTING:
The Build is spread out over two sims and you will need to teleport between areas but it is worked into the game so treat it like you would a screen load, Just click Teleport when the map comes up or click inside certain doors when they open to to travel between the levels, but make sure you have checked everything in the area before you leave or you may miss valuable information, items you may need, storyline or prizes.

BASIC GAMEPLAY:
You have applied to work for Shield Technologies and have come to meet Kevin Hooper, IT Director for an interview. You will need to collect  7 special items from throughout the game by performing tasks, or solving simple puzzles to advance. Some levels are short and some are longer, some have puzzles to solve and some don't. The game is linear even though it may not seem like it lol. We tried to make the puzzles simple yet challenging. We found out that some players do better helping each other in groups and that is definitely encouraged!
It is in your best interest and much cooler to read everything you find on the story of "SYSTEM FAILURE". You never know where a clue will be and to move ahead you will need all the info you can get. Notes, pictures and objects will contain clues for puzzles as well as add storyline. If something stands out to you, click it!

KEYPAD LOCKS:
To Operate Locked Door Keypads, Solve a puzzle or find a number needed during game play, Enter the numbers by clicking them in the correct sequence on the keypad then hit Enter. If you wish to start again, click Reset. If there is a teleport exit, click the button that says TELEPORT on the map when it pops up. To use some teleports you may need to click to open the door, then click again to enter it.

CHEATING:
We KNOW people are going to cheat but we ask that you PLEASE not give solutions to the puzzles in open chat or teleport people into the game. Hints in the Pulse Games group chat are great and appreciated. EVERYONE must start at the beginning to get their hud and instructions. Anyone found cheating or giving out puzzle answers will be banned from this and any future events so just DON'T DO IT! We mean it., seriously.

PRIZES
Gifts from our generous Sponsors are hidden throughout the build in small metallic SHIELDS that look like THIS . 􀀜 There are prizes hidden all over so check everywhere. You don't want to miss those.  We have also set up a Souvenir & Halloween Shop at the end where you can purchase holiday themed items after you play and get LMs to all your fave shops!

WARNING:
We have done our best to use a minimum of textures and preloaded most of them to keep load times easy. There is GOING TO BE LAG. Please remove as much of your primmage and scripted stuff as possible to make things easier on others and yourself and turn down your draw distance to the minimum. You will not need to see very far. Screaming out lag and being an ass during the game will make the experience less fun for everyone so PLEASE be considerate of other players or get yourself banned.

GENERAL GAME INFO:
This is NOT a hunt. This is a game with donated prizes hidden throughout. It is NOT meant to be run through quickly and could take over 2 hours of your time. SYSTEM FAILURE IS NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH or easily offended. It is a VERY mature and gory game. If you don't like these things, then this game is not for you and we can give you LMs of some spooooky haunted houses with spinny alpha ghosts.

Please tell your friends about us and share the landmark and we would love if you visit the stores of all the vendors who donated prizes or even send them thanks. They were so generous to give to this event and have our gratitude.

Now, turn the lights down and the volume up and prepare yourselves for a vision of the future with our 7th annual Halloween Event, SYSTEM FAILURE!
