From the link I posted:

Freeform Communications sent out this little tease a bit ago for a yet to be named game project:

FROM THE PRODUCER OF THE MOST CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED REAL-TIME STRATEGY GAME OF ALL TIME* COMES A NEW FORCE IN GAMES DEVELOPMENT

With it was a link to Exoriare.com, a teaser site that, after you click on the letters QUO, sends you to a big map of the world with a message saying there needs to be "additional sightings" to reach "signal integrity" which essentially means they want 122,112 page views.

The only significance I can figure out for that number is that it is Dec. 21, 2012, which happens to be the latest date for when people think the world will end. I have no idea if that was on purpose or not and it really doesn't help with the figuring out bit at all.

In my little fantasy world I'd like to think its about a new Xcom game because, well, I want a new Xcom game. That and the website sound is very reminiscent of the sounds from one of those games, I seem to recall. However, I think the top ranked RTS according to GameRankings is Company of Heroes, so maybe something from Relic. They are hiring for an MMO.... which just makes me sad.


On the left side of that image that you linked it says "Leonid Position". I'm trying to decode the rest right now.

The Leonid Meteor shower is something that happens yearly.

Not sure if thats related.

BTW, not sure if anyone else did this yet but if you click the number in the upper right on the radar screen (it counts from 0 to 9 real fast) there is a place to put 2 codes. Sort of like a user name and password field.

Looks like gibberish to me...

But I think its some sort of code.

Heh, cool... The latitude and longitude it shows on the main map is whatever town you are viewing the page from.

I have to admit that weirded me out a bit when I put it into mapquest and saw my home town right under the marker. :p

You have to make the longitude negative since its West. I did that too and ended up somewhere in Asia. :p

EDIT: Also, if my calculations are correct (I've always wanted to say that :D) the large counter on the radar page should reach zero in less than 2 days.
