I like secret languages in games. I’m too sluggish to decipher any of them myself, however I get pleasure from seeing a game’s neighborhood decide aside international symbols to uncover a game’s deep mysteries (Tunic’s musical language was particularly enjoyable.) Fortunately for me, gamers have already deciphered the ‘Indecipherable’ textual content log within the new Dead Space remake, revealing a poem that doubtlessly hints towards the sequence’ future. Naturally, spoilers inside.
Once you roll credit on Motive’s new Dead Space remake, you’ll have the ability to begin anew on New Game+. At this level, you’ll have a couple of new textual content logs in your stock, one in all which is just titled ‘Indecipherable’ and incorporates a wall of symbols that’s actually alien to me. However, longtime followers recognised these as Marker symbols – a language that exhibits up in all three Dead Space games. Reddit user u/GingyYoutube translated the textual content to seek out an ominous, three-verse poem.
The poem is sort of cryptic, however web sleuths suppose it doubtlessly refers to a number of components of Dead Space lore. Fans on the subreddit had fairly a couple of concepts, linking sure strains to the Necromorphs, Markers, and the Oracles from Dead Space 2, relying in your interpretation. One Redditor even has a “crackpot theory” about how the poem pertains to the ignored Dead Space cell game (though personally, I’d simply be pleased with one thing that explains hero Isaac Clarke’s stint as a Tiger Woods impersonator in his quite cursed job historical past, amongst lots of different bizarre aspect hustles he is undertaken over time).
Meanwhile, different followers consider the second stanza could possibly be referencing the icy planet of Tau Volantis in Dead Space 3, because it’s actually frozen nonetheless. The final line is especially fascinating. Is it a warning about humanity’s destiny on the finish of Dead Space 3, or is it a prayer to the Brethren Moons?
I’ll have an interest to see if the textual content log was a enjoyable neighborhood thriller or an indication of issues to return. The remake’s new secret ending additionally leads straight into the sequel, and I’m positive followers will discover different easter eggs within the coming weeks. Either manner, EA Motive have finished a swell job on the remake, giving the horror traditional a shiny face-lift. In his Dead Space remake overview, Liam referred to as it “among the best action-horror games I’ve ever performed,” so I’d be joyful to see the remainder of the trilogy obtain the identical remedy.
If you’re within the temper for some outer house frights, Dead Space Remake is out there on Steam and the Epic Games Store for £50/€60/$60.
