Yesterday we told you about the â€œspecial messageâ€ that Deus Ex Players were given – and it seemed to be some sort of cryptographic code. Well, the Reddit hive-mind has cracked that code – but it leaves us no closer to knowing anything.
First string: okM8-+Ds4Dui?IMh$Mzvm14SBqe7;G.l6=u74b?mkh-45Ki60d+98XBpCku7
Second string: 5 -/!f/fq/xc/qy/d3/?x/t$/j#
Third string: r 5 / i e / y p
fourth string: a d / u k / w 0
fifth string: b o / z v / 3 n / 4 h / 9 b / $ = / = 8 / s t / – 9
A clever somebody figured out that using simple character substitution on the uppercase letters only, the whole mess of letters, numbers and symbols leads to a website; http://13311tower.com/. You’ll find, on that page, that clicking the illuminati symbol throws up a login screen, prompting for username and password. Somehow, somebody though to look at the image info for the background image, which curiously contained GPS co-ordinates. There’s also a link to an audio file. Those co-ordinates pointed to central Australia’s Ayer’s Rock – otherwise known as â€œUluruâ€. The audio file, meanwhile, contains Morse code. Deciphering that code throws up â€œ11m13clinicâ€
Logging in to the webpage using those credentials gives you just this image, which doesn’t help solve anything at all – but it does mean we’ll possibly be closer to finding out on Sunday.
