Ahh the fun of over analyzing teaser trailers!


If you really want to go too far, there's faint text in the workbench window background, behind the question mark icon. Do you speak gibberish?

Does anyone remember the Clues from the old (British?) Quiz show 3-2-1?

I'm guessing an anagram but there's a few words to come yet.
You've got most of Amiga and Memory there already...

Credits to Boot_WB and BinoX they decoded the gibberish as a base64 string:

What is X, if not a letter,
Perhaps an Omen, or even better?


Look back to messages 131/134.

Why`s that? Because of sad threads full of wishful thinking (h/w specs of dream Amy/AOS) ?

There's also a two-pixel wide vertical line on the yellow part of the X (clear in high contrast viewed on laptop with screen tilted to an extreme angle), perhaps suggesting the edge of a 3-dimensional object?

Interesting. X has many meanings, it is also used as a replacement for "trans", as in "Xfer".


I still think it's memory protection myself...

I also thought it might also include the possibility of future CPU portability but actually they'd be pretty dumb if they didn't at least consider this for the future.

@all

Have you noticed that the background on the first page is white while it's black on the other pages ?

Actually, no. It's just a window.

@Rogue (/HyperionMP / Enthilza)

Nice game, catching attention, and funny, really !


But don't push this too far / too long, or you might face people moaning (as usual) "Oh, is that all it was about ?", "I would have expected..."

anything ending with hyperion-entertainment.com seems to show the teaser.

http://www.foo.hyperion-entertainment.com worked for me.

You can have a lot of fun with blind URL re-writing rules Try this one for example:

Personally, I think that we need one more clue, for those who think that they might almost have it. Oh, and I do think that people are going to like what it is.
