  1. Go outside Curtis's house, and click on the ladder above the house. Vella will walk through the door and stand behind it, without opening it and without transitioning inside.
  2. I was moving from the control room where Merrick stays, out the exit that leads back to Shay's room. The game crashed as soon as Shay got to the doorway. This was during the section of the game where you are first given free exploration of the ship to solve the three puzzles. I had just finished solving two puzzles (shields and navigation). The game was running for more than an hour before the crash. Abbreviated crash log is pasted below. (sorry!)

  3. There is also encrypted data in the press release. Not pasting it here since it screws up the forum page formatting.
  4. If you resize the window text editor window so the two identical messages are side by side (make sure your text editor uses a fixed width font) you can cross your eyes so the two identical messages overlap. Some of the words are inset in the resulting 3D image. The inset words are the secret message.
  5. On Mac, open a Terminal window and use cd to go to the folder where you want to extract the files to, then type "unzip " (note the space), drag the zip file into the terminal window, and hit return. It will show an error but extract the contents anyway.
  6. The MP3 metadata contains the comment: "passwords read like incantations when spoken in all capital letters" The genre is "aes-256-cbc" The text file, when the width is adjusted, contains a cross-view hidden message: "The embedded application is enciphered with the incantation presented by the first observed glyphs" This seems to strongly hint that one of the files is an AES-encrypted executable.
  7. "Monster's Cradle" is the best one that actually parallels with both sides of the story, at least from what little I know about the story.
  8. I deleted my Paypal account because of evil, but I can still receive email at the address I used. Will that cause problems at all?
  9. Here's something you might add to the episode notes: The quote by Miyamoto (21:55) is "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever."
  10. Heads up, there are actually two sketches with the letter N by them.
