Can you help me find this puzzle/interactive fiction website?

I'm looking for a website I found years ago that combined prose and pictures to create a series of puzzles, but I do not remember what it was called. The notable thing about it was that it had 12 puzzles, and they are dispensed to you weekly, with a story and master puzzle arcing across all twelve, leaving you with a 3 month interactive experience. Does this ring any bells?

Unfortunately, it's been long enough that I have forgotten almost all of the specifics. I do remember it was very stringent on the weekly schedule, there was no working ahead, and if you didn't log in weekly or near weekly it would restart you at the beginning. I also remember very clearly that the first puzzle had to do with an ouroboros. The name, I think, had a bizarre animal name in it, like platypus or narwhal, though I may be off on that.
Does anyone know the name of this website I'm remembering, and, if it still exists, a URL? Know of anything else similar?
