Ooooh goody! Can't wait to see what they have in store for the second picture :D

Manco 02-02-2017 03:29 AM

YEAH IT'S ON NOW

Any guesses as to what the next picture will reveal?

Gunnr 02-02-2017 04:03 AM

Wooot, start in up again! Maybe we'll get something about the blind mudokons or tear extractors. That would give a shudder

I'd like to see some bloodthirsty Slogs and trigger-happy Sligs. Greeters would be nice too.

Greeters would be a good pick for me too. They're really unnerving.

Xavier 02-02-2017 04:19 AM

Just so you know





EDIT:

Looks like they updated the oddworld.com/soulstorm page.

the message now reads: Photo 2 - Encrypted

"Here is the second image we've been sent..."

Varrok 02-02-2017 05:08 AM

Dots, dashes and slashes... what could this mean?

GreenAnhinga 02-02-2017 05:14 AM

I got
OTDOTDOT DMSDASH D
From the morse in the top right. I think I did something wrong.

getmeouttahere 02-02-2017 05:15 AM

Seems like the morse code on the new image is spelling out more morse code...this'll be fun

Seems like it. I fiddled around with top right and got this


-....- -....- -....- / -....- / -....- .-.-.- .-.-.- / -....- -....- -....- / -....- --..-- / .----. -....- .-.-.- .-.-.- / -....- -....- -....- / -....- / -..-. / -....- .-.-.- .-.-.- / -....- -....- / .-.-.- .-.-.- .-.-.- / -....- .-.-.- .-.-.- / .-.-.- -....- / .-.-.- .-.-.- .-.-.- / .-.-.- .-.-.- .-.-.- .-.-.- / -..-. / -....- .-.-.- .-.-.-

Which comes out like

*--- - -.. --- -, '-.. --- - / -.. -- ... -.. .- ... .... / -..

Which turns back into the first lot.

This is going to be fun

EDIT: Pigpen cypher (maybe) so far I have

Working from a phone is slow

Woo hoo!!! Work for four hours, then in I shall dig....

I dont have time to decipher gtg, sry.
something new?

ColdAlliance90 02-02-2017 05:34 AM

I can't do anything right now because I am in class but looking at the image, there are small black spots under the social links in the bottom left corner, they look like they form more symbols for a cipher. I will check back after class!

PenguinX45654 02-02-2017 05:36 AM

New image everybody and there's a lot on it:

http://www.oddworld.com/soulstorm/1029contact/pada.jpg

EDIT: Just taken a quick stab at the image to identify what is on it. I have marked what I have seen with red rectangles with numbers next to them.

1 - Morse code - Haven't translated much of it and I believe all the codes are part of a big code. One I quickly typed into a Morse Code translator gave me a sentence reading 'OTDOT DOT D7DASH D' Maybe we need to translate these and then translate the result?

2 - Some alphabet swapped set of characters? The sort that are mathematically based? I think remember Gunnr figuring these out on the redacted document.

3 - Arrows like the ones from the redacted document.

4 - Strange pattern, doesn't look random, looks very uniform

5 - Braille?

6 - 1029 symbol over glukkon's face. 'We will rise'

Deciphered, so far it's

I'll try decode the decoded message

Good spot. It's Braille that says:

Yeah I'm getting decoded pigpen much different from the cleartext you posted using the same image as a decoder.

FreeMudokon 02-02-2017 05:45 AM

[Edit - Should have refreshed before posting. Damn, you guys work fast]

Hi! I'm quite new to the forums, but I just want to thank everyone for their work so far!

I think I've deciphered the Braille on the bottom left of the new picture. If I've got it right it says:

"Spread our message"

Hope it helps!

I might have done it wrong. I used the image from wikipedia of all places. I definitely see what you mean though.

Samtastic 02-02-2017 05:56 AM

Just had an email from the Oddworld newsletter!

Xavier 02-02-2017 05:57 AM

And there is a barcode in it, I guess we need to decode it as well

EDIT:

Link to newsletter:
http://us3.campaign-archive2.com/?u=...0&e=6a2b5665ee

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/2b6dca...ce4084fc2c.png

looks like the barcode reads:

Ivzw gsv mfnyvih pmld gsv gifgs

(I used this site: https://online-barcode-reader.inliteresearch.com/)

PenguinX45654 02-02-2017 05:59 AM

Wow, you guys are forum ninjas, you managed to get some translations going before I managed to upload lol. Also, looks like I originally posted in the wrong place seeing as I'm now mysteriously here so to whoever moved my post to the appropriate thread, thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

I'm gonna try and see what I can uncover seeing as you guys have this special set of characters and morse code underway

EDIT: Figured out the braille under the social media part of the image.

It says: "Spread our message"

HTML_Earth 02-02-2017 06:06 AM

The barcode from the newsletter says:

GreenAnhinga 02-02-2017 06:08 AM

Morse code translates to

DASHDOTDOTDOT DOT DASH DOTDOTDOTDOT DOT DOTDOTDOT DASH DASHDASHDASHDASH DOTDASHDOT DASHDASH

Or

-... . - .... . ... - --- .-. --

Or

BETHESTORM

Xavier 02-02-2017 06:11 AM

Excellent find GreenAnhinga! I see 3 different morse code, which one are you referring to?

Ugh, I just spotted the arrows on the left side of the pic, we never managed to break that code, did we?

Edit: Nice work PenguinX45654, it's easier to point out what we are looking at, could you maybe give different numbers to the different morse codes?

Also could item 4 be two barcodes, one horizontally and one vertically?

All four. The one on the left is the only one that's more than three lines. If you put all four together and arrange it so it's all on three lines you get the message that leads to bethestorm

I hate those arrows more than I should.

mattb150 02-02-2017 06:26 AM

Could the cube be morse code horizontally and vertically? For example:

https://i.imgur.com/soesyrC.png

Edit: Looking more closely, the dashes seem to vary in length which more or less rules out it being morse code... However with code running vertical and horizontal maybe there are just some "artifacts"... Or maybe tap code/some other form of dots/dashes code? hmmmm....

I hope not. My phone hates me as it is
