Heyho folks, It has been hinted that there might be something for us to find in the new Kickstarter trailer (link to file here). I thought it prudent to create a thread for the purposes of investigating this further, both for the sake of having a readily visible archive of what has and hasn't been investigated, but also to co-ordinate between those who tend to primarily operate on IRC, as well as those of us who primarily lurk here on the forums. As always, you can join IRC now via this web client. So, anyone found anything? For those just joining, here's a quick overview of the how and what that's been found so far. Spoiler: Things discovered so far Spoiler: The Trailers Secret After some searching, Bats linked the ticker of the trailer, namely the "Barbizon Hotel Opening" bit, to a specific website. Spoiler: Website www.barbizonhotels.com Spoiler: Broken appliances It was then noted, that there was a seemingly out-of-place piece of art located in one of the rooms. Spoiler: Fix it fix it fix it. Fix it fix it! The picture, found on the TV in the Apartment Suite, was identified as Gustave Dorés "Dante Speaks to the Traitors in Ice", based on Canto 32 of Dante Alighieris "The Divine Comedy". Spoiler: The Next Step After some time, dancingtheghost noticed a stray "h" on the room description of the Apartment Suite. Inspecting the room showed a more grievous coding error: "h<>". Inspecting the source code, she found a hidden message. Spoiler: The Hidden Message <!-- Subfolder: Dante / File: VDVuEb13.txt --> Which, in turn, lead her to both the pastebin of the same file name, as well as the text file in the hidden sub-folder on the site itself. Spoiler: Early bird gets the worm Vomher found the next piece of the puzzle, before it was planted on the site. Spoiler: Yum Using the same filename as before, he came across a tinyurl leading to a new Gustave Doré engraving, namely "The River Styx" attached to the wikipedia entry regarding the River Styx itself. Shortly after, the appliances in the Double Deluxe room started acting up, showing the image already found by Vomher. Spoiler: A New player Enters the scenery Subsequently, a pre-existing but hitherto unnoticed piece was discovered by Makaruda in the Single Deluxe room. Spoiler: The old switcheroo The painting above the bed, identified as Les chênes d'Apremont (The Oaks of Apremont) by Théodore Rousseau, had replaced the previous painting, which can be seen here. Spoiler: Wink wink, nudge nudge The final, high probability clue, was found in the second AMA held on the 29th of August. Spoiler: Know what I mean? Another engraving by Gustave Doré, namely "The New Jerusalem", could be seen in the background. This is, for now, as far as we've progressed. In addition, you can find the google doc established for this investigation here, and the mind-map made by thatangryviking. In addition, Catalyst has crawled the site in question, and compiled a list of the findings: Comments - Pages - Attachments. Keep in mind that these do contain spoilers in plain view.
