Yesterday browsing around on Facepunch Studios Forums I came across this one post asking if someone could help him getting past a puzzle he had encountered on a website called HackMigo.
As usual Facepunch rated him dumb, which is a function on their board to agree with others on certain parts without actually posting it. However the website became a mysterious thing and suddenly everyone was doing the puzzles and helping each other out solving them going further and further into this riddle site.
Who or what is HackMigo?
HackMigo is a puzzle/riddle site that takes some hard riddles and puzzles from around the web mashing them together in one big adventure of thinking and solving. HackMigo does this quite excellent with a simple and sleek website that shows that amazing stuff can be done in a simple design.
HackMigo founder is a 27-year-old developer under the nickname HackMigo on his website, no further information can be found on the actual site sadly. I’ve been trying to get in touch with him and see what I could do to get some more information but for now this will settle it.
Are the puzzles even hard?
This is the big question, are they hard? – Some of them are really hard because they require literally no brain to solve, the answer is right in front of you but you wont think logically and literally at times which throws you off track, it’s brilliant!
I’ve personally got to level 12, and that level is after some German translating, finding song lyrics and even binary code. Yes how does someone like me know the answers to all this? Well yet again HackMigo strikes with the brilliance of integrating a custom Google search (also Bing search, but not many uses that) and Wikipedia to encourage you to think for yourself and go look up the answers!
Try it out yourself!
Wanna try HackMigo out? You can go and play it right now by clicking this piece of text.
I would encourage you to register an account, from this time right now there is 53 users registered, this is not much but it wouldn’t surprise me if it suddenly blew up everywhere, it seems like the next viral. But who knows? Maybe not, regardless HackMigo is a thing to try out. Definitely.
