The advisor has me on the edge of my seat. I don't want to get excited for Ep3, considering the time frame. But COMEON!

in regards to Chinner's image, yeah, that is new as shit, even to the ARG as far as I know. I saw my Amnesia update like 30 mins ago, that must be what was added. Raptor Jesus Gifs Readiness status updated to: Magenta.

Hm, wiki says the advisor pic has not been confirmed.

Yeah, it could very well be bullshit. People are free to update the wiki and they went mental when glyphs were 'found' in TF2, updating them to the wiki, but they were all just sprays.

I'll wait this one out before going ballistic.

Definitely going with bullshit on this one. It's just a mirrored shot of the advisor on terminals in Episode 1.

I wrote up the words found in that Amnesia picture:

Attention: File the following under “Random Arbitrary Ramblings”.

Inscriptions of the Nile, where the unspeakable eldritch horror hide:

- A simple man: Hideous load and hairy bat (1)
- Dweller of sky: mother in sea (1)
- Give your eyes and bowl: Mass far below, crator of life (1)
- Fibonacci digger: at graveyard, in gallery (2 + 1)
- Temptation’s tongue fell off at hole: plateau of the octo-leg (1)
- The weights are in equilibrium: the gate (1+ 6)
- Feather walker gaze at meal: unstoppable and shapeless (1)
- Dual hooks and beams: many forms seek followers (8+9)
- Two more remains in plain sight.


Remember,

A certain permutation can form something encapsulating all,
But is not the answer.
The numerical order, where hidden trumps shown, must be used!

Do not gaze at the face! It is not of here, but should reside elsewhere.

at this point, I wouldn't put it past the guys who are running this ARG to make something so obviously fake that people would almost immediately dismiss it......

And then the Illuminati come in and they're all "Hey baby did you order a pizza"

Morons disappointed that Valve didn't tease a Half-Life game less than two weeks before the launch of their next major game deserve to be disappointed.
seeing this and then reading your reaction to the advisor is pretty sweet

Seeing your triple post is pretty sweet. Ever heard of the edit button?

On topic: The Advisor pic should have been confirmed fake or real by now. Is it?

I'm open to teases, but I dont expect the teases, especially not at this point in time.

The idiots are the ones who seem to think Valve are a one franchise company, and cant get past them wanting to promote their next major IP.

Still interested what those photographed concept pics are for.

I glanced at the wiki link the other day, but now I'm really excited.

I really wish I was better at this stuff, but it's just as exciting watching other people figure it out.

So I was playing Super Meat Boy and this randomly popped up. (it's a website using the Steam overlay browser)



I haven't been following the ARG, is this super old? If so has a password been discovered? The wiki isn't working for me.

It was 'discovered' a day or two ago, but Valve took it down and replaced it with an image of potatoes. Folk think they got into it too early.

If it's back up it looks like we're at the right part.

And by 'we're' I mean the people doing all the hard work while I enjoy the ride.

I didn't even look in this thread until now, assuming it was some big promotion for their potato sack of indies.

Little did I know.
