Watch: We followed real world coordinates we found in Get Even

Challenge Ianneka.

Recently I had some minor surgery done and should, by rights, have been resting. Instead of doing that though, I couldn't stop obsessing over some map coordinates I found hidden in Get Even.

Out of a handful of fake coordinates listed in the game this one specific coordinate pointed to an actual, real-world location not that far away from where I lived. The curiosity I felt proved too great and I couldn't resist going there in person to find out what, if anything, was there.

In the video below I document my journey as I try to discover what is so special about these coordinates. Why choose that point? Is there a link to the developers? Is there something hidden there or is it all just random?

Find out as I undertake the great Get Even treasure hunt!
