Hi fellas!

Actually I've never seen any Lost episode, so I know very little about the story behind all this.

After finishing the game I keep asking myself: wth was this black smoke thingy in the jungle?

Does anyone know? :)

Well no one really knows everything about the monster. Basically what everyone says is a lot of wild speculation but for most of the information on the monster I would check its lostpedia page here (http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/The_Monster).

The answer that won a small contest was this one.
I think the monster was originally a highly advanced security system designed to separate participants in the experimental Dharma hatches. I think it was an effect that was designed to frighten people (smoke, noise) if they strayed too far from their experiment location. (A bit Wizard of Oz like) However, the electromagnetic force has mutated it - in the same sense as Desmond experienced time travel and can now see the future after exposure - and made it malevolent and able to physically grab things in its force (Eko, the Pilot, Locke). So in theory it may be able to be deactivated, if they can find the control room for it (which would be another hatch somewhere yet undetected)

Thanks for that link. I see that this topic is far more complex than I had expected^^

So it is intended to be some kind of mystery? Thats fine with me, I just had thought I might have missed some infos while playing the game...

You haven't missed anything. :) It was intended to be a mystery and so far, they haven't solved it on the show. Curiouser and curiouser.
