Over in the old thread, there's been some mention of rockets and rocket-ships... Mostly as a joking aside, but... What if the number 1389045600000 is actually a sequence? 1, 3, 8, 9, 0, 4, 5, 6, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0? Jumping to conclusions, but lemme try thinking this one out out loud:

According to my image search, there are 36 keys on the rocketship organ - bummer, if there were only 10 this would be cleaner... Not looking promising. If the bottommost note is 0, and are counted up by 1 every semitone, (eg, F0, F#1, G2, G#3, &c.) then it would be F#, G#, C#, D, F, A, A#, B, F, F, F, F, F. Maybe someone can give that a try on one of the new Mysts that have been published? Worth a shot, even if nothing happens.

Any other sequences it could represent?

I don't know if it's related to any ARG, but Cyan changed is logo on Facebook and Twitter :

With the message "Go Seahawks!"

Any idea of what it could be ?

Google tells me that Seattle Seahawks are playing in the Super Bowl. American Football, not ARG, I'm afraid.

Might be some news tomorrow during the superbowl. Ryan posted this on Twitter yesterday.

Enough looking at the past. Time to make Obduction the game it needs to be! Boo ya! Hint: watch Cyan Twitter during the "big game" #GoHawks!

And a bit later he tweeted

Cyan are accepting tweets "during the game (3.30 PST) " so "you can ask about Obduction or any questions you have for Cyan".

Mind you, they aren't promising to answer them! :lol:

Its just a fun way for me to watch the game, make a fun announcement during half-time, and respond to anything you might ask.

Go Hawks!

I'm eyeing the hashtags used on this.

Ok folks, I'm pushing a Backer forum posting of mine here... people over there seem to have given up on the ARG and we need to *get busy*!!

The thread had been looking at the 20th anniversary Myst poster as containing possible clues (based on a comment Rand made about it). This is where things stood last month.

Ainia wrote:Ok folks, it's really been bugging me that we don't seem to be making any progress with an ARG here. I find it *extremely* unlikely that Cyan doesn't have something out there for us to work on since this has been a trademark of theirs since pretty much forever.

So I've been fiddling with the 20th anniversary poster. Although I'm not sure *what* I've found, I think it surely must mean something... so anyway, take a look and let me know what you think.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Indiafissure's image from above

[Reveal] Spoiler: Poster with pictures marked by Age

[Reveal] Spoiler: Channelwood pictures

[Reveal] Spoiler: Mechanical pictures

[Reveal] Spoiler: Myst pictures

[Reveal] Spoiler: Selenitic pictures
Image

[Reveal] Spoiler: Stoneship pictures
Image

As you can see, all the individual Ages have 6 pictures each *except* for Myst Island which has 7 and Stoneship which has 11. So it seems to me that this is pointing toward Stoneship... or something...

I've already tried plugging the Stoneship pattern into the RMME Myst fireplace grid with no luck (since the fireplace grid is 8x6 and the poster is 6x6, there are 3 possible Stoneship configurations on the grid). So I'm not sure what to try next... or if I'm on a wild goose chase.

Anyhow, we need to get busy here! What do you guys think???
