Today a mysterious website for the upcoming PS3 exclusive, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune appeared on the internet. Probably some sort of weird and abstract advertising/marketing but it really brings about a fresh and immersive vibe to the game.
The website appears to be a journal written and maintained by Victor Sullivan. The journal currently has 3 entries and they are as followed:
- Sharing the Find posted October 23, 2007
- Financing the Hunt posted September 25, 2007
- Research Separates the Treasure Hunter from the Treasure Finder posted August 17, 2007
Nothing shocking is posted in these entries other than what appears to be a map found outside of Portobelo, Panama. The map is said to be previously owned by Sir Francis Drake, a renowned English explorer and privateer.
I do not want to ruin the immersive feeling you will get by reading a journal, so I am leaving you with the website that contains Sullivan’s journal.
Developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony, Uncharted is an adventure game with many search and exploration aspects built into it.
