As we previously reported, Columbia Picture’s Salt, starring Angelina Jolie, has an interactive story you can participate in at their official website. Every week there is a new mission, and last week Salt put your tech skills are put to the test, and this week you have to track the position of one of the Day X members.
For those catching up, the premise of the game is that Evelyn Salt (Jolie), a government agent, is on the run for being suspected of being a sleeper agent. Part of the terrorist plot called “Day X” is the awakening of these sleepers. Salt is trying to clear her name, and needs your help to do so. In the pre-game video for this week’s mission, you learn Salt has found Archie Johnson, but needs you to track his location.
After a few weeks of simpler tasks, this week’s game is back to being hard. In the post-game briefing with your boss, you learn Archie is actually a Russian stowaway with a distinctive birthmark, and that Catherine Hicks is now missing. Day X is apparently only three weeks away (coinciding with a week until the film releases), so we are getting closer. Don’t forget about the hidden codes for extra points! You should be able to figure each out from the mission reports and other items on your “desk”. I don’t want to give them away, so head on over to Unfiction if you wish to cheat.
Salt, starring Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber, is directed by Phillip Noyce (Clear and Present Danger, The Saint) and written by Kurt Wimmer (The Thomas Crown Affair, Law Abiding Citizen) and Brian Helgeland (Conspiracy Theory, Robin Hood). See it in theaters on July 23rd.
