SAMPLE-3While making your way through the story line of the amazingly awesome fall hit, Assassins Creed II, you may stumble upon Glyphs hidden throughout the world.

As you find them, they will unlock 1 frame of a 20 part sequence from the start menu called “The Truth”.  Each frame has a little under a second of animation before it cuts out (you have to scan all of the glyphs to get the whole sequence, check the link above).

To unlock the short frames of animation, you need to solve some riddles from puzzles contained within, I can’t remember if this was the 4th or 5th frame where this occured.

Anyhow, while solving the 2nd part of this puzzle, I came across some Hexadecimal code on my scanner, and I decided to plug it into the internet…  Here is the result:

Antikythera Mechanism’ much older than 150 B.C.E.

If you don’t know what the Antikythera Mechanism is, you can read more about it here.

The next slide presented me with some Decimal Code:

Ancient city, Rajasthan, India, irradiated by PoE

I’m not sure about the history of Rajasthan, but PoE is an item in the game, a Piece of Eden.

Finally I came to the last page, and my this point I was wishing I paid more attention on the first slide to catch the possible codes it contained… This last one was in Binary:

Sumerian. Me 23.

And I have no idea what that may be alluding to! But wow it was fun punching all of that in and converting it, I know, I am hardcore nerd.

If you have any information on the possible code contained in the first slide, please leave a reply!  I hope you enjoyed reading about this very small part of a very huge and VERY awesome game!
