A Rat in the Tunnels

January 27th, 2014, Cobalt, Cobalt Forum, Intel Report, Trif

Sometimes, a man inside is all you need to turn a war.

I’m Trif, and I’ve decided to go in.

Oxeye Laboratories. As you may or may not know, this dark organization attempts to hide its research activity in the realm of battle droids. There are some who believe they truly only use their human brain interface technology for authorized arena entertainment. I seek to find out what’s really going on behind the scenes.

Ladies and gentlemen, after a tedious fight with security layers, evil hamsters, and twenty cups of hot chocolate, I have successfully infiltrated their research network and communication channels.

However, cautious as they are, all research data seems to be encrypted with a unique key. It is my goal to steadily unlock the secrets at the bottom of Oxeye’s repositories, but it’ll be in small bits every now and then. I will share my gatherings in a weekly report. We start Friday.

So far, I’ve only been able to decrypt this picture. It appears to be pretty normal, although I’m certain I’ve seen something like this at Valve Laboratories too…

Is this..?
Is this..?

It seems pretty innocent to me, but who knows what we’ll find digging a bit further?

Until then.

(Special I-have-no-idea-what’s-going-on edition:

I’m Trif, the community guy who spends too much time posting on the Cobalt Forums! Hi! Oxeye has given me the opportunity to help them out with community interaction. My aim is to post interesting development teasers on Twitter and Facebook, but most importantly, I want to do a weekly write-up here featuring the best parts of the madness happening at Oxeye Game Studio. I’m really excited to start doing this, and I sure hope you are as well!

Keep an eye out for the first news report on Friday!)

    OOOOOOH You Trif and your dirty treats…

    Oh man, once this update rolls out (pun intended), I’m going to play the living crap out of Cobalt again. I haven’t been on much due to other games keeping my attention, but Cobalt will always hold a place with me.

    And yes, that means more maps (and possibly streams) by me, the guy who can tile-fill like a madman.
