'Glyphs' Puzzle Solved, 'Arrival' Site Launched
3:06 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

While this is old news to Marathon series fans who check out daily, those of you with a more casual interest in the subject still might find this fascinating. A while back we reported on a mysterious "glyphs" puzzle which had appeared on, which inspired its own fan page and a huge public effort to solve the riddle. 3,000 forum posts later, all 7 glyphs have been solved, and the answer points to a new section of the fansite:

Once you enter the site (hint: the login/password is ARCHIVE and OUTLINE) you will be greeted by a very minimalist site that nevertheless contains a fascinating array of information about the Marathon series. From scans of the handwritten design notes of all the original Marathon levels to scripts for the "BOB" character sayings, all loaded with that trademark Bungie humor. For those of you who discovered the first-person shooter aboard the shadowy, terrifying corridors of the USS Marathon, this is definitely worth perusing. (ARCHIVE/OUTLINE)
