Bungie-Destiny-Shirt-Tease.jpg


Yesterday bungie tweeted that an ARG (alternate reality game) has begun for destiny and it begins at this site http://alphalupi.bungie.net/. ARG's have been used for bungies games since Halo 2 back in 2004 which was I Love Bees (ILB) and IRIS for Halo 3. So for Destiny another one begins and once clicking on the linked site provided above a series of dots is presented which are geomantic symbols and you are required to align them up in a correct order and it will reveal a picture. You will be required to do this for each one on each day of this week.


For anyone who has missed yesterdays (like myself) you can still go back and do that one. So if you are into this kind of thing then get cracking and solves the puzzles.

How this ARG works

On alphalupi.bungie.net there are seven sections one for each day of this week and in order to access each section you need to align the dots to make the correct symbol. Once doing that it will show you two images, one on the left is a blurred image with text and the one on the right is a black sqaure with white dots (called an active baseline). Those white dots are nodes and the more people that are on viewing a particular section the more white nodes will appear. Once there are enough nodes appearing it reveals a code of some kind, a QR code, URL or something else that reveals the blurry text.

Here is a picture of what these sections look like.

Update 1

Monday 11th Feb - you had to align the dots to make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_populus.svg.png

The active baseline then revealed a URL which then revealed the first piece of text.

http://alphalupi.bun...98862748014.jpg



Update 2

Tuesday 12th Feb - you had to align the dots to make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_puer.svg.png

The active baseline revealed this QR code and when scanned it revealed the second piece of text.

http://alphalupi.bun...09394972304.jpg


Update 3

Wednesday 13th Feb - you had to align the dots make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_albus.svg.png

So far this code has been found in the active baseline but has not yet been fully revealed as there needs to be more activity on it, once it's fully revealed it should lead us to the third piece of text.

Ok the code above was another URL which reveals the third peice of text

Update 4

Thursday 14th February - you had to align the dots make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_acquisitio.svg.png

Once there was enough activity on the baseline it revealed this code which was another URL, the URL revealed the forth piece of text.

http://alphalupi.bun...70595463907.jpg

Update 5

Friday 15th February - you had to align the dots to make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_puella.svg.png

After enough activity on the baseline it allowed us to reveal the fifth piece of text

http://alphalupi.bun...34939781476.jpg

 

Update 6

Saturday 16th February - you had to align the dots to make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_tristitia.svg.png

After enough activity was on the baseline users retrieved the hidden code that brought us to the sixth piece of text.

http://alphalupi.bun...31500044149.jpg


Update 7

Sunday 17th February - you had to align the dots to make this symbol

64px-Geomantic_fortunamajor.svg.png

After enough activity on the baseline the hidden code within it brought us to the seventh and last piece of text.

http://alphalupi.bun...99634869174.jpg

For each of the text images there was some circular patterns in the background and all the images can be linked together to create one big image.

This webpage reveals all the text images that was hidden in each section throughout this week, along with a destiny themed wallpaper and transmission that is speculated to be a piece of a Destiny soundtrack.

When I first found out about this ARG I incorrectly interpreted how it works so I posted above exactly what needs to be done so if anyone who was also not sure read the description above.

Destiny is one of those games I am truly looking forward to. Looking forward to see what this reveals as we can expect Bungie has put in time and effort create not only a nice build up to their reveal, but a completed and refined game.

Keep up the good work adamj.

I cant wait either I love it when bungie goes to these lengths to build a story, the third section should be updated fully soon enough I'm keep an eye on the community to see what the next code is and what it reveals.

I just noticed that in the OP, you say that ILB was Bungie's first ARG. But it was actually the cortana letters for Halo CE: http://halo.wikia.co...Cortana_Letters

Adam actually knew about the Cortana letters but it must've slipped his mind when writing this. He's the one who pointed them out to me. I love Bungie's ARG's

Cortana letters was created by an employee who got fired or left bungie and done that by getting back at them but bungie just rolled with it. So it's not really considered an ARG and it was just emails there was no interactivity so it's not really a game but they were interesting nonetheless, very creepy.

yeah it's been another hard day I sure hope this ARG blossoms into something bigger and different after sunday, It would be disappointing and pointless if this was just for the reveal on Sunday on account that we have already been told about it.
