I love a good mystery like this and posted the below theory on the 77 day forum. So far, the only reposnse has been to say it is in the wrong thread.
LOL. Now, I am NOT saying I am correct by any means, it is too big a 'story' to call, but I would rather consider some reasonably linked options -
because I will eat my hat, nah....all my clothes and house, if it turns out to be about Syria, a crashed plane, some terrorist coded message etc.
Feel free to pick apart, just don't tell me it is in the wrong thread pllleeeaassseeee
Deus Ex Machina 2 due for release September.
Went in to production in 2010 so fits with time frame.
Pronunciation Book launched 14th April 2010.
17th April 2010 PB video is; Deus Ex Machina. Pronounced mac-I-na. Exactly as Christopher Lee (The Programmer role) pronounces it in promo video
linked below. (2min 40 sec)
The game maker Mel Croucher pronounces it Deus Ex Machin-a in the same video. He also starts off by saying that back in 1977 he started the first
computer games company in the UK. (00:44 sec)
The following link talks more about the game and its themes, much of it could/does tie in with things on PB, such as rock stars, drugs, born seeing
shapes and patterns, death, choices etc.
Could this be Chief; the article says that Joaquim de Almeida is The Defect Police. 'The Daddy of all Baddies'. "Although he starred in Batman and
The West Wing.......he is Portuguese, and some key figures in the Deus Ex Machina production team are also based in Lisbon...." Could this explain
the Spanish or (Portuguese)?
Architect - Mel Croucher, Game maker was also originally an architect.
Mel Croucher created PiMan puzzle so has previous in unique gaming/marketing.
Looking at others posts about computers mixing with people etc. (on 77 day forum) this is the original premise of this game. The following is an
article from some wellllll old magazine. The last paragraph talks about how the machine releases a defect (the player) into society; he or she, aided
by the machine, tries to become an individual in a world of pre programmed people.
Article on original game
Can't see a link with Howcast but just wonder if this sort of hook up might be possible, same ideology etc.
A wild guess I know:-)
