Bungie Website Counting Down to…Something

destiny countdown

A post on GameInformer today points the way to a Bungie-owned website with a mysterious countdown that would seem to end on Monday, February 18 Sunday, February 17. There’s an initial puzzle that you have to solve with clicking (hint: click, click, don’t-click, click), which then takes you to another page with some vague images, and a link. And that link takes you to a page that says THIS:

“Our sky is filled with unseen signals. Radio-frequency emissions pulse and flit and dance all around us. Yet even a singing patch of sky can be observed, and transformed into a range of frequencies.

Can you hear it? No, not yet. It has not yet arrived. But together we can receive its call.

Imagine combining the observations of thousands across the globe on an object meandering through the heavens. The resulting array would be quite large. Quite powerful. This is your task.

Alone it will not be enough. Coordination and timing is needed. Observations must be made simultaneously.

Your window will be small. Five minutes at most. But windows may be reopened. And the distance between observer pairs will be key.

There will always be limitations in clarity, so the results must be archived for study. Highly technical observers may be required. Detailed frequency analysis is recommended.

Everything that belongs to us will be ours, but only if we create the capacity to receive it.”

Man, WHAT? What does any of that mean? I don’t know—but it almost certainly is related to their new project, Destiny, and we’ll find out more this Monday Sunday. (And if you want to keep up with Bungie directly, direct your browser right here.)

What do you want out of Destiny? Lay out your predictions in the comments, youse guys.

  1. Oh boy it’s like the Cortana files, wonder if they’ll do something like “I love bees” again?

  2. Do you reckont he initial letters written in Bold spell a word?

    Maybe : OCIAYTE (I mean that could be a game title :D)

    • That’s actually a really cool made-up word (assuming that it’s pronounced oh-see-ate). Maybe that will be the name of something within Destiny, like the enemy force or the giant sphere thing orbiting Earth.
      If it isn’t, someone should use that word as a name for something awesome.

  3. I have a different picture for the black and white dot thing… is it suppossed to be a star map or what? Cause mine looks like the same thing but viewed from a different angle

  4. I gotta say, Destiny is great.

  5. I can already see a pattern. You formed day 1 out of day 0’s answer.

  6. Gamer’s are generally pretty good at multi tasking and i’m sure they will enjoy the challenge…
