hic est tuum temptamen quod temptat tua potentia

Though I think Mirthful Me is correct with the latin saying "this is your trial and trial your might", here are some of the literal translations of the words in case we need them in the future.

hic - this, this one; this present; in court, my client
hic - here; in this place, in this matter; hereupon

tuus -a -um, possess. pron. of the 2nd pers. sing. thy, thine, your.

temptamentum -. a trial, attempt, essay.

quod, conj.: the fact that, the point that; as to the fact that, whereas; because, on the ground that; why, on which account; with temporal clauses, since; as far as, to the extent that; introducing a fresh sentence, and, but, now, esp. foll. by si.

temptatio -onis, f. a trial, test; an attack.
temptator -oris, m. an assailant.
tempto -are, to prove, try, test, attempt; to test by attack, to assail; to work upon, tamper with, excite, disturb.

tu, pron. you.

potentia -ae, f. power, might, ability; efficacy, potency; esp. (unofficial) political power.

I don't think the last latin phrase is any hint on the game itself, just as statement that the game will be a test of our abilities. I think the clues must be in the maze. Why the illusion of spinning?

When i mix and match the translations, the best i get is "this is your trial, now prove your (power, might, ability; efficacy, potency)"

regardless of what those translators tell you...

My two cents:

Maybe it is just a challenge but in case its not, does anyone know if Latin is one of those languages that says things kinda backwards. I am not a linguist so I'm not even sure how to explain it. Like when the verb comes first in writing, but when you read it aloud you still say it in the right order. Also tempamentun and temptat are obviously two different forms of the same word right? So they would have to have at least slightly different meanings.

Hic can mean this or this is. Est can mean here, in this place, in this matter. tempamentum refers to a test of some kind. It could read: In this place you are tested.

Quod can mean to the extent, as far as, and, but, now, etc. Temptat can mean try, prove, attempt. Tu is you. Potentia can mean power might , ability, potential. So it could read: Now prove your ability.

This would make sence if we are referring to innitiations, or passage to other realms, often associated with the underworld and labyrinths. And, as we are nearing the day of the dead, it would be a good time for puzzles related to the underworld, cycle of life death rebirth, and any form of initiation. Although it may go on way beyond "day of the dead".

So bacically i think they're saying.... You're being us what ya got!

something like...

"here is your trial now prove your ability/power/potential"
that's what I got out of it, I really don't know that much Latin
