The purple box at the bottom reminds me a lot of the 'circles' we needed to decipher in
the November 5th game
. S.O. so obscured the graphics in the circles that no amount
of manipulation revealed much more than a few embossed, indecipherable characters. The answers (circle contents, see the thread) ultimately were
disclosed through the collective analysis of other clues (e.g., obtained via the Crakster, etc.). This fuzzy little purple box, me thinks, falls into
that category. BTW - a review of the Nov. 5th thread (and other previous games) will also give you many techniques for solving some of these
As for the latest conspiracy graphic, there really is no 'manual' possible. I typically just stare at the image for a long time until I notice some
sort of pattern or anomaly, then copy/paste the image into another program (any simple graphics/image program - need not be PS), and start making some
guesses and intuitive stabs at how the image might be "reverse-engineered".
This exercise, after many trial-and-error failures, eventually produces a few pixels that are recognizable. I then further develop and extrapolate
that process on the remainder of the image. Often, this is not enough, and further techniques, such as character substitution, need to be applied
until the answer slowly emerges.
It's tedious, painstaking, often frustrating, and frequently fruitless.
Just grab some strong coffee, settle in, put the 'ole noggin to work, and hope the boss (aka wife, etc.) isn't hovering too close by...
p.s. Nov 5th manips...
