Project Offset viral campaign unearthed


Okay, let's get a few things clear. One, Project Offset is a team-based FPS set in a fantasy universe. Two, that is one mean looking crocodile beasty thing. Three, said beasty is wearing a saddle, so you must be able to ride it. In short, it's awesomeness on a stick. On ... a ... stick. The Project Offset website hasn't been officially updated since October of last year, so we were pretty damned excited when we found out about a new viral campaign. According to VE3D, the viral site is recording unique IP addresses. When a certain number is reached, a new image becomes available. So, get to it fanboys! Together, we can crack this thing wide open!

There may have not been any updates on the news page, but if you scroll to the bottom right, there is an easter egg that you can click. that somewhat links to the viral page.

The bar counts to 1000 unique visitors when i last checked. we are now on the 3rd picture

4. I found that binary in the source code for the page, and I was planning on having my dad translate it into deca- or deci-, whatever number system we use.

12. I'm more for Sci-Fi than Fantasy games, but regardless, I want to try this game! Simply because of the graphics. The backgrounds, those buildings... the texturing is BEAUTIFUL. I can't wait to try this!
