Surely many of us have seen a game of Trials Evolution or a variant of the motorcycle franchise. They are attractive, very spectacular and for none of these reasons the saga will be remembered. The title released in 2012 for Xbox Live Arcade on Xbox 360 will remain in the memory of the video game community due to the genius of the RedLynx developers.
A thread to start pulling
Easter eggs are the talk of many players. Small winks, details and surprises to discover in a jug of titles, which is a hallmark of the humor and creativity of its creators. However, in the case of Trials Evolution the matter has completely gotten out of hand, although we had better start from the beginning.
Throughout the different maps in the game, the community began to realize that there were various wooden planks with very strange letters. After putting them all together, collaboration between users began to figure out what the heck it all meant. The result was a message that read the following sentences.
Music in game Map Nature Calls Moto Scorpion First checkpoint Jump onto the rock Press the right stick Up, down, up, down, up, down, left, right
Obviously, the next step was to carry out the entire process to unveil the long-awaited mystery. Carrying it out correctly, a song sung by a woman began to play and the lyrics indicated the following: “Wake up and listen, the secrets are hidden in the brightest notes/You must transform them into a more visible form/For a treasure awaits you.”
Far from ending the cloak of questions, RedLynx added more. The message seemed quite clear, so it was time to roll up your sleeves again to discover the next level. Using appropriate sound equipment, it was possible to detect that some notes stood out above the others, since they did not fit the song. The fantasy came when someone had the idea of performing a spectral sample of the theme and came across notes that lasted longer and others less in a very pronounced way.
Morse code appeared as the savior and the address of a web page that no longer exists was extracted, although it presented the classic tv static screen. Thanks to the imagination, once again, of the community, the internal code of the web was navigated to find a Latin text belonging to Tito Lucrecio Caro, a Roman poet and philosopher who lived in the century before the arrival of Jesus Christ.
Despite efforts to unravel its meaning, no one knew how to proceed until the page made a decisive change. The following image appeared and everyone began to wonder what consequences it was going to have:
One user found the key, as each drawing was a representation of some of the most important achievements and discoveries of scientists throughout history. For example, the first image is linked to André-Marie Ampère, father of the theory of electromagnetism. Making this type of links, it was concluded that the image actually showed an alphabet taking the first letter of each person’s name.
A question appeared on the web, which had to be answered using a simple substitution cipher and the answer being the final fate of the universe, a theory that emerged in physical cosmology that tries to offer an explanation at the end of the cosmos. the easter egg of Trials Evolution it had been very rare until then, but everything changed with the next discovery.
arm yourself with patience
Solved the riddle of the question, the web showed a new image that indicated in an extremely specific way four locations in very remote parts of the world. Helsinki, Sydney, Bath (England) and San Francisco in the United States were the places to which the coordinates pointed. In addition, each one of them was accompanied by very clear instructions on the steps to follow as soon as each one of the areas was reached.
Upon arriving there, the first to do so found four small chests and a key inside. In all of them was a note accompanied by the phrase “It seemed like an eternity ago”, which belongs to the author John Green and is longer. “It seemed like an eternity had passed, as if we had this brief but infinite eternity. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities,” reads the full quote.
Curiosity comes with the back of the notes and it is that in it you can read that at “Noon of the year 2113. First Saturday of August One of the five keys will open the box under the Eiffel Tower“. And it is that the fifth key is found inside the game, it is totally virtual, on a mountain on a game map. What is it now? Well, sit and wait and die without knowing the answer. None of those who we are reading we will probably never know what the resolution is, but it is more than possible that we will never know the end of the story.
It will have been 101 years since the launch of Trials Evolution for those dates and anyone could think that not even the organizers of this entire organization chart will be able to clear us up. Anttil Ilvessuo, creative director of the work, guaranteed in 2014 that he has prepared all the necessary mechanisms so that in 2113 the opening of the box in the most important monument is guaranteed. He has not revealed what will be inside, although he has given us one last and enigmatic sentence.
“We can all look back and see the Portrait of a Young Man in old footage. I survived Raphael. The next step is to be there. Probably not. Make the most of your End Times.”
