What's the secret message on the USB drive?

There were a bunch of USB keys sent out to gaming outlets today, with no return address and only a cryptic message. What could it mean? Is Majestic coming back? Are aliens trying to contact gaming press outlets?

The message is contained in an audio file and text document, and have very little actual information. The person in the audio file reads out the following letters:


The text document contains the following words (tags?):

  • Cryptography
  • Isotope
  • Philanthropy
  • Hydrogen
  • Ember
  • Rebirth

What does it all mean? Well, I’m not good with cryptography, but maybe you are. Of course you could cheat and just highlight the area at the bottom with your mouse to see the solution, but I’m thinking you might enjoy a challenge.

Joystiq cracked it, the code translates to http://gknova6.com and looks to be a upcoming game from Bethesda Softworks. The gknova6 site is interesting in an of itself, and worth looking at.
