Panem Map Reveal By Funtactix And Lionsgate In The Hunger Games Adventures

One of the most asked questions in The Hunger Games fandom got to be what does the Panem map looks like? While we do know Panem is located in the ruins of North American, specific locations of the Districts and Capitol were not given in the books which left fans making up their own Panem maps.

Now for the first time, fans will get to see the official Panem map which is revealed by Funtactix and Lionsgate in the official Facebook social game, The Hunger Games Adventures.

Check out the promotional screenshot below where you can see the locations of District 12 and the Capitol. Meanwhile in The Hunger Games Adventures, locations for District 2 and 11 are also waiting to be unlocked.

Actual populated District locations are labelled with a star as seen in the promotional shot below.

For more information, take a look at the press release from Funtactix and Lionsgate:

This landmark release offers an exclusive look at a new map of Panem. The map is one of the most anticipated updates to the game and arrives as part of a series of new content reveals leading up to the DVD release of the film on August 18.

 

For the first time, Hunger Games fans can use the new map of Panem as they explore the world of the film and novel, complete quests for their favorite heroes and unlock all-new stories inside the world they love. Thus far, the epic adventures of the game have led fans to the Capitol, District 12, District 11 and, most recently, District 2. In the coming months, new districts will be revealed exclusively through the new map, along with an exciting storyline that will take players on a journey from obscure citizen of District 12 to a hero capable of unlocking Panem’s deepest secrets.

The New York Times: Do It Yourself Mockingjays Now Possible?

Is it possible that we can actually create our own Mockingjays?

The New York Times explores the possibility of this happening in this interesting article.

The Hunger Games Official Teaser Movie Poster

Setting aside whether jays could actually breed with mockingbirds — this is a kind of fairy tale, after all — the choice of species rings true. Jays, along with crows and ravens, belong to a highly intelligent group of birds called the corvids. And jays are naturally thieves and spies, keeping track of where other jays hide food, for example, to raid it later. Mockingbirds, of course, have a fantastic ability to mimic other birds’ songs. Coincidentally, or perhaps not, Thomas Jefferson, a lover of both birds and liberty, kept a pet mockingbird in the White House.

I asked Joan Slonczewski, a microbiologist and science fiction writer at Kenyon College in Ohio, about her take on the mockingjay. Dr. Slonczewski, whose recent books include a text and a novel, “The Highest Frontier,” teaches a course called “Biology in Science Fiction.” The tools needed to modify organisms are already widely dispersed in industry and beyond. “Now anybody can do a start-up,” she said.

That’s no exaggeration. Do-it-yourself biology is growing. The technology to copy pieces of DNA can be bought on eBay for a few hundred dollars, as Carl Zimmer reported in The New York Times in March. As to where D.I.Y. biology may lead, Freeman Dyson, a thinker at the Institute for Advanced Study known for his provocative ideas, presented one view in 2007 in The New York Review of Books. He envisioned the tools of biotechnology spreading to everyone, including pet breeders and children, and leading to “an explosion of diversity of new living creatures.”

Eventually, he wrote, the mixing of genes by humans will initiate a new stage in evolution. Along the way, if he is right, the world may have more than its share of do-it-yourself mockingjays.

Take A Virtual Tour Of Capitol Over At Capitol Tour

Have you been checking out Capitol Tour lately? If you didn’t, you totally should right now. Just look at the home page for Capitol Tour below!

Lionsgate is taming up with Microsoft to create viral site in HTML5 instead of the usual flash. Needless to say, Internet Explorer 9 is needed for the best viewing and touring experience.

“The Capitol recommends you use Internet Explorer 9 during your tour for the best experience of our city,” visitors are told upon arriving.
The “Hunger Games” site features a variety of hidden features for fans of the novel to discover as they wait for the movie. (Hint: Type “ivolunteer” in the Control Room to see an exclusive clip from the movie.) It also uses HTML video in unique ways, skewing the video to fit the circle of screens in the Control Room for example.
Microsoft is looking to differentiate IE9 from rivals Firefox and Chrome. Market share of Internet Explorer has fallen substantially in recent years worldwide on desktop PCs, but Microsoft points to gains for IE9 on Windows 7 as evidence of progress.
Other technical features of the Hunger Games site include high-definition graphics, such as a map of the Arena in the Control Room, which is an HTML5 Canvas element. There are also small particle effects throughout the site that use HTML5 to make the environment feel more active, including smoke, clouds and objects held by characters. Facebook integration brings images of the user’s friends into the site in a variety of ways, as well.
Microsoft and Lionsgate partnered on the site with digital agencies Ignition Interactive and The Nerdery.
