Overview

E3 is now only one month away and here at Zelda Universe we have some exciting news to announce: we have been hard at work for nearly a month on our own Zelda game… of a sort.

It’s actually an epic web-based treasure hunt! Upon uncovering the mystery of The Temple, contestants will earn chance to win one of three amazing prizes!

Will you choose the Chest of Courage, the Chest of Power, or the Chest of Wisdom? Each one contains something different and you won’t know what’s inside until you open it!

If you open it…

To find one of the three Keys of Virtue will be a month-long adventure of riddles, puzzles, and wits. If you think you have what it takes, journey to The Temple.

The doors unlock at some point on the first of May…

Good luck on your Temple Quest!

  • Fizz

    Challenge accepted.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/BigKeyChest BigKeyChest

    Now I understand the poll.
    Can't wait!

  • Sikora

    Cool! I will choose Din, my clan on the forums.

  • Slogan

    It would be wise to choose Nayru

  • zekiebouy

    im choosing courage!!

  • KingOfRedLeopards

    it just shows a black screen :(

  • lizzy

    I'm excited!!! But the doors have not opened! I guess I'll have to do it after school. D: Bummer. And are there like only 3 "prizes"? Or can everyone open a chest and get something?

  • Maxxxxxy

    *refresh*

  • Neil S
  • TriforceofCourage

    Not sure what I would choose yet. Do you have to officially be a part of the forums to participate? I suppose I could always just sign up, but I never participate in discussions except for the occasional comment on news posts, so I don't see much point in doing so.

    • bastian

      Nope, you are not required at any point to be a part of the forums. There is one section in the game wherein it would be wise for a group of people to get together and act as "sentries" of a sort, and perhaps the forums would be a good place to record that information… but that's not required. It will just make things a bit more challenging if you go it alone in that section.

      • Viscen

        So what you're saying is.. It's dangerous to go alone? ;)

      • bastian

        Haha. So to speak. There's just one instance in one of the weeks that will be awfully tricky for just one person to solve so it might be a good idea during that week (you'll know when you see it) to gather a group a friends to keep watch at different times.

      • Viscen

        Ahh okay. So when are the doors opening?

  • someone

    everybody give this comment a thumbs down.

    • WWCH

      ok

    • cloverplayer

      Well that didn't work.

  • http://www.Yahoo.com Dylan

    Courage is the logical choice for all heros.

    • tbschen

      I see, you clearly didn't pick wisdom. It is spelled heroes.

  • KingDodongo1

    Anyone else getting a 404 error?

  • zeldapunkgrrl

    All I see is a brick on the left column that does nothing when you click on it.

    • http://www.Yahoo.com Dylan

      turn the volumn on your computer…you'll hear a familiar zelda sound!

  • Punch Dinosaurs

    I managed to replace the door with a brownish-goldish kind of block. No idea if that means I progressed the puzzle or broke the image somehow.

    • zeldapunkgrrl

      I've got the same thing. I have no idea. I'm assuming you need the right password for a certain letter but not sure what.

  • LegendOfHyrule31

    No doors. :(

  • http://www.Yahoo.com Dylan

    I'm starting to get pissed off!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Viscen

    honestly! what letter and what password??

  • RAWR

    What the heck do I do? I pushed the button and played the sound and I found the password box.. this is kinda dumb, lol.. thought it would be possible atleast.

  • RAWR

    Right? Where in the world is any form of password?

  • bastian

    Sorry guys, ignore our mess. It's not fully set up yet. I'll post here when it's actually ready.

  • RAWR

    Alright Bastian, sorry for my comment calling it dumb. :D xD Now atleast I know there is problem with it, lol.

  • cloverplayer

    No spoilers please :)

    PS. I'm taking you DOWN!

    • cloverplayer

      And btw, don't freak out if you don't know what to do. It is supposed to be hard!

  • andee

    fml. i want it to
    +work now :( ive been waiting all day for this D':

  • Tony Hartless

    Holy Sheikah!! Technical problems are instructive, I finished a two stars cube of squares origami and a tree stars rabbit!! Hope I dont have time to make a dragon :(

  • andee

    is anyone else still have problems getting it to load? or is it supposed to be a blank page with the random pass box and treasure chest sound?

    • Fizz

      Earlier in the comments Bastian informed us "things aren't fully set up yet". So, you aren't having problems with loading, there just isn't the stuff to load yet. It shouldn't be too long before we're all rushing around like madmen trying to play The DaVinci Code.

  • bastian

    The Doors are open… ;)

    • cloverplayer

      ;D

  • Jess

    Hmmm….I'm having a hard time figuring out the password and also I don't know what the bottle is for…But I got it.

    • cloverplayer

      me too :}

      • Jess

        What is the password, I don't know. It's driven me crazy. DX

      • wariotime

        Wow, so glad I'm not the only one who had to do that hahaha

  • cloverplayer

    Found the password, like a Hylian boss :D

    PS. It's a secret to everybody.

    • Jess

      Where did you find the password? Tell me Tell me.

      • cloverplayer

        figured it out :D

  • CaptainSpaz

    Oh, I had it before but the password would appear to be case sensitive.

  • Jess

    okay…Now I'm really confused….I can't find a 'special key' that is needed to unlock a door, and all I got was fish!

  • bastian

    Please keep in mind that giving out passwords and telling people how to get through also limits your own chances of winning. :D

    • Jess

      Yeah, I know but I'm still confused. ^^;

  • realar

    Damn, poor satellite internet can't upload images before the page times out. Any chance of tweaking the code (Varnish backend? The guru error sure brought me back) to allow a few more seconds? If not, good luck to everyone else!

  • WiseWarrior

    I'm playing the song in the book on the harpsichord and nothing is happening. There's not knowing what to do, and then there is (Apparently) knowing what to do and it not working. What's wrong?

    • bastian

      Maybe that's not a song, but just a diagram… ;)

  • WiseWarrior

    I'm playing the right-most note and then going left to right just like the book says and nothing is happening.

  • Darkot

    Figured out everything up until Jabu Jabu…can't figure out how to get him to appear >_<

    • cloverplayer

      same… I'll try again in the morning :

  • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

    Ok, so I have a bottle and 3 fish. Now what? I can't seem to do anything else :( Oh and I deciphered the statue.

  • Akleptic

    There seems to be a problem. I know where to put the fish so Jabu Jabu can eat it and I can get the Jabu Key but there is no upload thing?
    Help?

    • Fizz

      Hmm, you mean you found something actually clickable to place the fish, or are you just going off of instinct for where you think it should go? Feel free not to answer, but if there's a step after gaining the fish I wouldn't mind knowing it's there to look around for.

      • Akleptic

        I know where he comes out! He's orange, I just don't know where to upload the fish to.

      • Lollercoaster

        Conglaturation!
        You are the first one to figure out to look into teh source code of teh page!
        You won teh Internets!

  • Akleptic

    There seems to be a problem. I know where to put the fish so Jabu Jabu can eat it and I can get the Jabu Key but there is no upload thing?

  • RAWR

    I honestly think that I'm giving up already.. some of you just must be smarter than me, I clicked every square inch, translated the statue even the book cover, tried to play a song that I can't find a hint for anywhere.. I don't know what to do. :( I got one bottle, don't know how to get a fish or the password.

    • Akleptic

      Password is Sapphire, "He is talking about a jewel or special stone" and "He likes blue but a special kind of blue" What is the stone color? Sapphire :)

  • RAWR

    You didn't have to do that Ak but thanks.. I thought about trying sapphire since the stone is a sapphire, it didn't work for me though. I'll keep chuggin on.. need a break though, my mind is gonna blow.

  • RAWR

    Just wish it wasn't so cryptic like. Some things don't seem to give hints, like where to feed Jabu the fish, but I'll figure it out and I'll probably hit my head against a wall when I see how out front it is. :O

    • Akleptic

      I know where to feed him but I can't find the upload image thing.
      There might be a problem with the game D:
      I know he comes out and tells you something, you feed him and bam, gimmie key but The button does not come out for me. This is truly unfair.

      • RAWR

        Atleast you found how to feed him. Meh, I'll keep looking. Did you try a different web browser?

      • Akleptic

        Yeah, I tried three different ones.

      • RAWR

        Dang.. sorry man, don't know what to tell you. It's not working for me neither it looks like. :(

  • Akleptic

    If we complete it, where do we post what the item was inside the chest?

    • RAWR

      I didn't get the pw right because I was typing it with a capital. xD Poo.. -facepalm-

  • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

    Ok so I got the Jabu key and I opened the sealed place and I got a 3 key song. I wrote it down and When I played it nothing happened? What am I doing wrong?

    • Cyberian

      Take a look around in first room, this might give you the hint, why the notes are not working.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        If you're talking about the book then I already converted that to the music thing. And I play the tune but it doesn't work :(

      • Akleptic

        What is the tune? Tell meeee I'll help you.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        You'll find the notes out when you open the locked door.

  • Akleptic

    Where did you feed Jabu!?
    Was it in the lake?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

      Yeah :D

      • Akleptic

        What the hell, I clicked everywhere and he doesn't come out. I know it has something to do with that little white box but I can't do anything.
        WTF

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        I didn't click anything. He was just…there.

      • Akleptic

        Did you just get one fish?
        I have like 5 empty bottles and double copies of the fish.
        You must have done something before you got there :/

      • Akleptic

        You must have done something before you got there, did you get all three fish or just one?
        Anything you did before getting there?
        He doesn't appear on my screen.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        I got all three fish. But you don't need duplicate items. Once you have it, you have it for good. And I seriously did nothing. I just left the window open and then I played Mario Kart then I saw your comment about him being orange and I thought I'll just look around again and there he was.

        So in other words Mario Kart makes him appear :P

      • Akleptic

        Damn you to hell.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        What did I do?

      • Akleptic

        I'm just kidding :P
        It pisses me off that he doesn't come out for me.
        I'm sure you must have done something we haven't done.
        What browser are you using?

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        Firefox. And I seriously did nothing, I just left the browser open. Maybe he comes out at a 2% chance?

      • Akleptic

        I tried Firefox too.
        I know you have to give him greengill because he wants the sweet one.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        How did you know he wanted the sweet one?

      • Akleptic

        Because I know how to read that language.
        I saw a pic of him but I dunno, he doesn't come out.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        I know how to read it to. But how did you know what he says if he didn't come out? :o

      • Akleptic

        I'm psychic.

      • Akleptic

        Can you tell me the name of the Jabu key file? I have the picture but it says 1 and well the game doesn't accept it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        It should accept it with the name as 1. It doesn't go by names. Other wise people could just cheat the system. It goes by the code of the file.

      • RAWR

        No.. doesn't work. Have all 3 fish.. and nothing. :(

      • cloverplayer

        I think you need to leave the page up for a bit, maype? ;)

      • RAWR

        He's not showing up for me.. I guess whoever wins this just wins from chance of it working right for them. xD

  • Akleptic

    Guess this contest isn't for me.
    Or should I say, My browsers Dx

  • Greg

    Jabu Jabu wont appear!!!!! WHAT DO I DO

    • http://twitter.com/Soeroah @Soeroah

      Won't appear for me either. I tried changing my computer's time settings to noon, too, and nothing.

      • Okami

        He did come out for me at first, but now he won't come out anymore :S
        Really weird,.

      • http://twitter.com/Soeroah @Soeroah

        What time locally did you see him? I'm wondering if 'for lunch' is a hint or a red herring.

      • Okami

        About two hours ago. 12.56 locally to be precise.

      • http://twitter.com/Soeroah @Soeroah

        Doesn't appear to be that, then. I've tried 11AM, 12PM and 1PM with no change.

      • alex

        try to set it to 12:30 pm then it worked here :)

  • Krang

    Hey I have a question? Do you guys know if getting the three note song is the end for this week? Or have I still not completed it?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

      I'm up to the same part you are. I'm stuck on the 3 note song.

      • Krang

        Yeah im thinking the song is not just three notes, and each week you get three more until you have 12 in total, then you play it on the piano thing.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Catacombninjapage Catacombninja

        Hopefully :P

    • bastian

      One of the books gives some insights into what you found. But suffice it to say, you're done for week one. :D

  • Jeff

    So, I've been getting a black screen saying " Loading Temple Quest…" for the longest time. Is that normal or is there something i must do/ or have missed?

    • Jeff

      nevermind >.<

  • Feanor

    I ran into a problem: I read the books but didn't write down what they said. Now when I click on the bookcases, I see the cover of the books, but I can't open them. Can anyone help me out here?

    • cloverplayer

      They got updated, click on the arrows to turn the pages.

  • andrea

    dioojgodshfgkhjs is the first page only supposed to be a green screen with a password box?

    • jon

      If your on Google Chrome then yes, try another browser

  • andee

    FML. finally when it starts working i have to go to school. DAMNIT. UGGGHHHH

  • Blake Condit

    I was about to recommend this to some friends, but when I try and load the Temple quest in a separate tab, or in my main tab for that matter, it comes up with a green screen with a box in the top right asking for (what I assume) a password…. Is there a reason for this? If so, what is the password? I will also note that I am using Google Chrome but didn't have this problem yesterday afternoonish. I would prefer to get my friends in on this, but I cannot do this if it's password protected..

  • jon

    Try a different browser; it only does that when I use Chrome as well

  • Feanor

    It's doing that on Firefox too.

    • Feanor

      And Internet Explorer.

      • jon

        Hmm, I see what you mean now. I don't know, it was working fine this morning.

  • cloverplayer

    The main page isn't working so here is a link to the first website: http://templequest.com/insidethetemple/

  • Zeldo

    i got to the 3 note song. all i want to know is if this is it for today? or is there more? don't tell me what it is i just want to know if there's more cause i've tried a lot of things!

    • jon

      I just got there too, and I'm pretty sure that's it. Don't quote me on that though!

      • Fierce Diety

        How did you get Jabu Jabu to appear? Was it just random?

      • bastian

        I'LL quote you, because that's it for the first week. One of the books refers to what you found obliquely.

  • Darkot

    No idea what happened with Jabu Jabu for me…I was doing it right, but he wouldn't appear at first..oh well, I got to the first monument anyways. Really enjoyed this :D can't wait until next week.

  • RAWR

    Is something supposed to happen when I play the song? I thought I played it right… I even the graph from the book of mudora.

  • Fierce Diety

    I've been clicking refresh at Zora's Fountain for over an hour now… Someone, please put me out of my misery! WHERE IS JABU JABU?!?!?! Please and thank you!

    • jon

      First of all, he's actually at the lake. Secondly, I went to the lake, left for an hour to clean my cars, came back, refreshed the page, and he appeared. If you are still stumped, then I will provide you the bullets if you wish :P.

  • bastian

    Guys, you're welcome to share hints and clues with people, but also keep in mind that the more people that finish this the smaller your chance is in winning the prizes at the end. So it might not be in your best interest to be so forthcoming. ;)

    • RAWR

      Hey Bastian, is the song stone of wisdom the monument of virtue? And I played the song and nothing seems to be happening, am I done? Is the song split into 4 sections and that was just one section?

      • bastian

        A book in The Temple explains that the way to the Keys of Virtue is locked by another "key" of sorts broken into three pieces… I think you found one of those pieces. Now you'll have to wait for Week Two. ;)

  • CaptainSpaz

    So, is this pillar thing the end of this week's installment?

    • cloverplayer

      Yep :)

  • http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005S0W0MS/?tag=signalpublis-20 Thareous

    Not unforeseen, but epic still. : )

  • kaepora21

    It's dangerous to go alone! Take this!

    *Hands you crash course in HTML & Java code*

  • Ken

    Some of you have mentioned books in the temple, but the only book I've found is the translation guide. Where is this book that explains the virtues? I already got the key and the notes so I'm thinking the answer I'm looking for shouldn't spoil too much.

    • cloverplayer

      on the left bookshelf.

      • Ken

        Turns out that only one of the two bookshelves works in chrome :( I had to use firefox
