News Updates

On April 7th Dejobaan patched their games in response to the sentient attack that implanted code in their releases on April 1. Three news updates were made, each update contained an image with 8 digit and 10 digit filenames, this may be a clue. A meaning for the first image has been found but the second two have not had a purpose discovered yet.

Shows what seems to look like the colored crate level in TWEOTW, except with companion cubes, as well as several phrases. Edited first image located here However, holding down the P key while entering any level on any mode yields nothing.

The White text appears to be a plea or help, while the yellow text appears to be the virus. Because the U is white and the P is yellow, it is possible that we are supposed to use the U key.

File:Comin-2.wav | http://arg.sophira.org/comin-2.wav Reversed to wav yields "tell them everything is fine" To convert it to an audio file, IRC user Sophie used the GIMP's Levels tool to adjust the input levels by dragging the middle arrow to the right to make it a bit darker, then saved it as a BMP and used ARSS to convert it to a WAV file with the following command line: arss comin.bmp comin.wav -n -r 44100 -f 16 -min 60 -max 22050 -l -p 180 - EXIF Author Rrrrrrr! It's fighting us. But we have it in a holding pattern.

EXIF Artist: "End of Line."

This (and 3 previous) file is NOT uniformly white, from the left the first 688 pixels have an RGB value of 255, 255, 255 while the remaining 9123 are 254, 254, 254. A reference to 1...2...3 Kick It! perhas?

Plea for help

At about 15:00 PDT on 4/12, Dejobaan twittered another page [1] which since has been deleted, but the contents captured here:

  • The front page says there was a hidden message in the source of the page. The only "strange" thing is this :
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-/EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
  • Could this possibly be conveying another letter to use in TWEOTW? --KingMudkip 18:13, 12 April 2011 (CDT)
  • Given that a few games have already shown to have two soundbites, this may indeed be the case. DrMelon 18:23, 12 April 2011 (CDT)
