First phase: Establishing communication with Ed

Soulstorm is announced

Original version of reveal1.jpg, our first clue someone was reaching out

[2016. March 14.] Oddworld Inhabitants announced their new game Oddworld: Soulstorm during GDC 2016. Along with the announcement the oddworld.com/soulstorm page is launched. Upon closer inspection of the Soulstorm page the community stumbles on some weird HTML comments, a hidden picture (reveal1.jpg) and a encrypted code in a video. At this point there was no doubts anymore, the ARG had officially started!

Dialog Box

[2016. March 23.] Finding the message in the video seemed to have triggered and update on the oddworld.com/soulstorm page. The main update on the page was the apprition of a dialog box in which users could input messages and get answers, sometimes encoded, sometimes in plain text.

Ed?

Screenshot of the dialog box from the oddworld.com/soulstorm page after 75 attempts

[2016. March 24.] The dialog box revealed a weird picture after the user inputted 75 messages in a row. This picture allowed us to find multiple clues hidden behind [magic eye stereogram], morse code and weird text formatting. The clues ultimately all to pointed to the same message: Ed.

[2016. March 25.] Not long after we find out a misterious page called Ed with one single message.

  • i can hear you, just. it's faint, but i can hear you.

Finding Ed

Ed's profile picture on Twitter

[2016. April 4.] The Ed page changed multiple times in the days following its discovery. The final message had a block of 140 '/' characters and had a lot of '#' in it. It was telling us to look for a Twitter account, note that at the time Twitter had a maximum of 140 characters per message. This ultimately led us to the @edmudokon twitter account which was full of criptic tweets.

  • One Zero Two Nine
  • I can hear you, faintly.
  • Yes! Yes! You are getting closer
  • If I could just… I can’t… Find me.
  • Where are you? Can you hear me?
  • We’ve stopped the progress… I need to show you the truth about this place.
  • You can hear me! Just, please, listen.


[2016. April 4.] The tweets also contained partial codes that once put together and inserted in the Dialog box ultimately unlocked the next major phase of the ARG.

Messages

  • *** IT WORKED! IT WORKED! OK, NOW I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION - LISTEN, THEY'RE NOT TELLING YOU SOMETHING. SOMETHING IS WRONG. VERY WRONG. YOU NEED TO LISTEN. YOU NEED TO HELP ME. I NEED TO HELP YOU... ***

Second phase: The 9 Pieces

Updated dialog box linking to Piece 1 with task revealed and code unlocked

After inputting the code found in Ed's tweets the dialog box on the Soulstorm website changed: a line of 9 spaces appeared at the top: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. Each space representing one "Piece" of a 36-character code.

During this phase the community had to find the 9 pieces. Each piece was initially locked had a challenge associated to it to unlock its code.

Piece 1

[2016. April 4.] Piece 1 was granted to us immediately with its code unlocked.

  • Piece 1
    • THEY ARE HIDING THINGS FROM YOU. FIND THEM


Piece 2

Piece 2, with task hidden and code locked

[2016. April 4.] Later that day Ed tweeted a message in morse code telling us to "learn the history of the creators". This lead us to Lorne Lanning's page on oddworld.com that contained the second piece on the bottom of the page.

The task was to "Reach 23K Twitter followers @OddworldInc", once that number was reached the code of Piece 2 was unlocked.

Clues


Piece 5

Ed appreciating all the hard work of the community

[2016. April 4.] A bit later Piece 5 was revealed with its task immediately available. The task was to get "15 photoshops of Alf's fez onto game characters" and send them to Oddworld Inhabitants on Twitter. This was completed and the code of Piece 5 was unlocked.

Messages

  • Ed's Twitter
    • Thank you. You’re helping.
The dialog box being updated as the community progresses

Piece 8

[2016. April 5.] The next day Ed tweeted a message in morse code asking us "are you listening?", at that time the Soulstorm page was updated with a new puzzle in the HTML code. Following the trail where we had to line up characters in the HTML code and decipher morse code from an audio file we reached Piece 8. It was tasking us to take "25 photos of scrub-Abe rescuing 8 Muds in New'n'Tasty". This was completed and the code of Piece 8 was unlocked.

    • let me try this
    • they aren't telling you everything

Piece 3

Piece 3, with task revealed and code locked

[2016. April 7.] A couple of days later Ed tweeted multiple tweets containing what looked like gibberish, once uncoded using [Navajo code] they led us on a trail where we had to reassemble a picture and use the [Pigpen cipher] to get to Piece 3.

The task was to "Get 45K Facebook likes on /OfficialOddworld", once that number was reached the code of Piece 3 was unlocked.

Clues

Piece 6

Original version of the witness puzzle

[2016. April 12.] A few days later Piece 6 was revealed with its task immediately available. The task was to "find, solve and return the witness puzzle". The community found the puzzle and solved it, shortly after the picture of the puzzle got replaced by its solution. Using the solution of the puzzle together with another picture given by Ed, playing with HEX color codes and decoding some more morse code hidden in a movie file allowed us to find the final message transcribed below which unlocked the code of Piece 6.

  • HTML comments
    • There was a minor, insignificant error in the code here. Please ignore any message(s) you may find as a result of this unfortunate glitch. Apologies.
    • Nobody was a witness.
  • Audio file
    • I CAN HELP YOU KNOW THE DATE

Piece 4

Picture hidden in seeme.wav

[2016. April 20.] A few days later the fourth character turned into a "?" indicating that the fourth piece was ready to be found. At the same time a new generic message could be obtained from the message box: SEEME? WAVE. After a trail where we had to convert sound to picture, spot mirrored words in a wall of text and use some ciphers again we reached Piece 4. The task was to create "20 new gifs of Abe deaths in New'n'Tasty" This was completed and the code of Piece 4 was unlocked.

Clues

Abe says hi

[2016. May 6.] The next few days were a bit slower, with some Ascii art appearing in the HTML code but it didn't seem to lead us anywhere.

Piece 9, with task revealed and code unlocked
Decode the future find the code

[2016. June 22.] A few days later Piece 9 was revealed with its task immediately available. The task was to "Decode the future find the code". Finding the decodethefuture.jpg file and decoding its content using the [BabelStone Club Penguin] cipher led us to unlock the code of Piece 9.

Piece 7

[2016. June 24.] A few days later the seventh character turned into a "?" indicating that the seventh piece was ready to be found. At that time the Soulstorm page was updated with new HTML comments containing dissociated lines. By matching those lines together we knew we were searching for a zip file. With Ed's help via Twitter we were able to find the password to the zip file that contained Piece 7 which was already unlocked. The automatically completed task asked us to "Listen to the source", which we indeed had to do to find the password hidden in one of Ed's first tweets.

Using the code

[2016. June 28.] By reuniting the 9 pieces, we got a code: "C4GD-RDHG-SSBR-SCRD-3STY-DDTH-WALF-XGMA-DF2F". Some pieces resemble leet speak (C4GD = Caged, SCRD = Sacred, 3STY = Thirsty), but these didn't appear to have any relevancy to the usage of the code. To reach the next step, Ed gave us a map that made us revisit previous parts of the ARG and revealed the way to decrypt the code to find the message: "FL4MMABL3". Putting this in the Dialog Box generated one last answer: 1029.io

Third phase: The Spirit of 1029

Screenshot of the 1029.io website

We have now established contact with the revolutionary group, The Spirit of 1029. This kicked in motion an entirely new section of the ARG, with most of the new puzzles happening on their site: 1029.io.

1029.io

[2016. June 29.] The site told us more about the revolutionary group the Spirit Of 1029 and told us to expect a brewing storm. However, in the site's code additional clues waited to be found. Curiously a lot of details (like text color, hidden numbers in the logo) referenced the number 8291 and Ed.

WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED!

THE FALL OF RF1029 WAS THE SPARK TO IGNITE A REVOLUTION. FOR TOO LONG, THEY HAVE CONTROLLED THEIR GIANT INDUSTRIAL MACHINES, GRINDING THE BONES OF OUR KIND INTO DUST IN THEIR ENDLESS PURSUIT OF POWER AND WEALTH.

WE WERE TAUGHT THAT THIS IS ALL THERE WAS: OBEY. / COMPLY. / WORK.

THE TRUTH WAS HIDDEN FROM US. OUR HISTORY WAS HIDDEN FROM US. WE WERE BRED TO WORK, RAISED TO OBEY AND FORCED TO COMPLY.

OUR NATURAL CONNECTION TO MOTHER PLANET WAS ERASED FROM THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF OUR PEOPLE. LOST WAS OUR KNOWING. LOST WAS OUR UNITY, OUR CONNECTION, OUR POWER AND OUR PURPOSE. ALL THAT WE WERE WAS A COMMODITY TO BE TRADED AND EXPLOITED IN THE ONGOING RACE FOR MORE WEALTH. WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE PROTECTED, WE WERE TRICKED INTO KILLING. WHAT WAS WORST FOR US, WE WERE TOLD WAS BEST. WE WERE TAUGHT TO TRUST THOSE WHO WOULD DECEIVE US THE MOST.

THAT HAS ALL CHANGED.

THE HERO HAS SHOWN ALL OF US THAT OUR OPPRESSORS CAN BE TOPPLED. HE HAS FOUND OUR WILD AND KNOWING BROTHERS. HE HAS RECONNECTED THE FACTORY-BORN TO OUR NATURAL WORLD AND ANCIENT WAYS. HE HAS LIT A FIRE IN OUR HEARTS THAT CANNOT BE EXTINGUISHED.

WE WILL GIVE HELP TO THOSE WHO ARE HELPLESS. WE WILL LEND STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO ARE WEAK. WE WILL FIGHT FOR THOSE WHO ARE DEFEATED. OUR MOVEMENT WILL SPREAD LIKE A RAGING INFERNO AND WE WILL TAKE BACK THE POWER FROM THOSE WHO HAVE ABUSED IT.

WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED BY THE MEDIA CIRCUS. WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED. WE WILL NOT STOP. WE WILL NOT OBEY. WE WILL RISE AND WE WILL RISE AGAIN, UNTIL WE HAVE BURNED THROUGH OUR TATTERED BONDS AND RAZED THE MACHINE TO THE GROUND.

WE WILL RISE. JOIN US.

THERE’S A STORM COMING.

Fragments

Random picture from page imgzerofourfiveone

[2017. January 21.] Decoding the morse code in reverse in the audio file and unlocking it with the word storm led us to a new page containing random fragments of a worrying photograph. Those are the first pieces of intel reaching us coming from Asset 98, a member of the Spirit of 1029 movement.

You have signalled your willingness to help. Now you must prove yourself. Our efforts to get a clear data stream have been in vain. You will have to piece together the image from these fragments. Help us to expose this latest crime against Mudokonkind.

When you have a complete image, show it to @OddworldInc. They appear willing and capable. Recruit others to help you find and share the pieces. There’s a storm coming. Be the storm. We will rise.

[REDACTED] Together we can expose the truth. 1029.

[2017. January 26.] A few days later the first of four incriminating pictures was released. It shows a line of Mudokons in what looks like a labor camp or processing area of some kind. The Mudokons are carrying what appear to be body bags. Tattoos on their chest indicate their slave ID. A Glukkon in the background is supervising the situation.

    • Update 2: Having discovered hidden morse code in the audio, which was reversed and substitution cyphered (with the word 'Storm', the key that was hinted at in the distorted image), the audio encryption has almost been cracked! It's looking like a URL - can you help figure out the next step...?
    • Update 3: Congratulations! The community has discovered a secret URL on the 1029.io website! But what are those images of? Are they fragments of a photograph? Once you've got everything together - show us!
    • Update 4: Oh wow! It's a Mudokon...! But what's he holding? Leave it with us, we'll get that image cleaned up soon. Congratulations everyone, great team effort and hopefully we can crack the next four images as quickly!
    • Update 5: Thanks to you guys sharing the previous images online, we've managed to decode the photo further and have updated the thumbnail here. We'll return on Thursday with the finished, fully decrypted image - but until then, please do let us know what you think!

The Second Transmission

[2017. February 2.] OddworldInc and the community continue to working together to decipher and clean up the second transmission coming from the Spirit of 1029. Unfortunately the community's use of automated tools and brute force attracts unwanted attention.


More Codes

[2017. February 2.] a week later the Spirit of 1029 communicates that it received another transmission from one of their agents, presumably Asset 98. A bit later the Soulstorm page was updated with the clues for the second transmission.

Around the same time OddworldInc sent out a newsletter mail reaching out to the whole community to help crack the codes that will allow the world to discover the heinous crimes against the Mudokons.

Something strange is happening on Oddworld.

We've been receiving garbled transmissions from a clandestine organization claiming knowledge of a new and horrifying plight that the Mudokons must face. Can you help us unscramble their communications and save the Mudokon species?


A new mystery awaits you!

Recently, we were contacted by the mysterious Spirit of 1029 group. They claim there is a new threat to Mudokonkind that has been classified top secret and hidden from the world. You can help to uncover the truth, follow Abe's example and save his species.

Our community has already solved one set of puzzles to help reveal the image above, now there's a new mystery awaiting you!

Head on over to the Soulstorm website to see the latest transmission we've received and help to crack the code that will allow the world to discover this heinous crime against the Mudokons.


The story so far...

You can catch up and follow the earlier clues yourself by visiting the Soulstorm website.

We were contacted by a mysterious group, calling themselves "Spirit of 1029." They sent us a couple of files which they claimed to have received from an operative very close to the situation.

The first, a garbled image of a document that had been heavily redacted, held fragments of coded messages and hints at what was happening. It contained a key that assisted in the deciphering of the second file - a harrowing audio clip that contained a hidden message in Morse code.

When those messages were deciphered, we were led to a web page that served up eight fragments, torn and burnt, of a photograph that seemed to depict something terrifying. After a concerted effort from our community and our team at Oddworld Inhabitants, we managed to get the clean version of the image you see at the top of this email.

Now, Spirit of 1029 has made contact again and they say there's more to see. We're going to need more help if we're going to solve this mystery and save the Mudokons.


Join the resistance!

Join the fight back by following Oddworld on Twitter and Instagram, liking our Facebook page and spreading the word about what we've found.

Sign up for the resistance and help to liberate these poor Mudokons now!

You can find the mysterious Spirit of 1029 organization on Twitter here and their Mud on the inside, Ed, here.

The Grid

[2017. February 3.] Decoding the two bar-codes in the lower right corner of the Agent's transmission picture led us to the next step of the trail: a new page from Asset 98 with a scrambled grid and a whole lot of comments in the code. Part of the puzzles of this part were bypassed using brute-force on the lock for which we had to find the password, revealing that the password we were looking for was subjectivism.

[2017. February 10.] The community eventually figured out how the password was supposed to be found a couple of days after the second image was cleaned up by OddworldInc. It involved identifying what data to actually using slashes and backslashes, resolving the grid as a game of Shikaku and mapping letters on top of the solved grid.

[2017. February 7.] After brute-forcing the lock the community found a new page from Asset 98 displaying random pictures when refreshed. Most of the pictures appearing were scrambled but sometimes a clean picture was displayed. One of the members of the community wrote a little script to try to find all the clear images in an automated way. This was not well received by @SPIRITOF1029 who tried to warn us not to use machines. A few moments after the script was run the 1173418569 page started to change every few seconds depicting what appears to be an attack on Asset 98. In the end the page was left almost completely black with Asset 98 terminated.


The different html files telling the story have been preserved here.

The original pictures have been rehosted on the OddWideWeb:

Asset 99

[2017. February 7.] Shortly after Asset 98's termination Asset 99 stepped in and published the 1173418569 page too. However on this version of the page the clear pictures do not appear anymore. The community used the clean versions previously captured to piece together the full picture and submit it to OddworldInc so they could clean it up.

We will not be stopped. We may have lost Asset 98, but we will continue strong. Together. Against the machines. Help us to expose this latest crime against Mudokonkind.

When you have a complete image, show it to @OddworldInc. They appear willing and capable. Recruit others to help you find and share the pieces. There’s a storm coming. Be the storm. We will rise.

The power will shift and we will rise again. Together we can expose the truth. 1029.

[2017. February 9.] A couple of days later the second of four incriminating pictures was released. It shows a Mudokon strapped to a chair in what appears to be a Vykkers Labs laboratory. Around him is various medical equipment, syringes and what looks to be an experimental 'strain' of SoulStorm Brew.

[2017. February 27.] On this day @OddworldInc was hacked presumably by Magog. The Twitter posted three propaganda posters, while it's rightful owners tried to retake control. Later this day @SPIRITOF1029 and @edmudokon tried to shed some light on the actual, much darker facts.
