In this day and age, game designers are looking for new ways to drop subtle hints about upcoming exclusive trailers, release dates and such, but when the Dead Space community received a letter in the mail from Visceral Games, everyone seemed to be a little baffled.
Included in the mail was a letter and a strange inkblot that to the regular person would seem like it did not serve a purpose. But the Dead Space community know what they had to do, and set to work right away by importing the inkblot into their favorite imaging program and fiddled with the contrast.
Going back to the letter briefly, which can be viewed here, there are some runes that can be deciphered. According to the folks, it translates as “The Sickness is the Cure! The Cure is the Sickness!”
Over at the Unfiction forums, the inkblot has been tampered with many times and from the looks of things, there are hidden messages within this ‘Rorschach’. The most important being the numbers 42910 which can only mean one thing… 4/29/10 – meaning that this Thursday we could find out some more information regarding the release of Dead Space 2.
Fingers are pointing at the impending trailer, but what do you think it could be?
