Hey, I've just finished playing through the game and I've started to poke around with the hidden Glyphs in the game. I found the one about Nikolai Tesla and when you pane around with the little magnifying glass to find the apple you can sometimes come across hidden text. Now, I found a text that was encrypted, it read...

Being a computer scientist, I couldn't resist programming a little code that decrypts this. It turns out its a ceasar cipher (which really is very easy to solve by hand as well). Shift all the letters forward 24 steps (A becomes Y, B becomes X, C becomes Z, D becomes A, etc) and you get the following message

HE USED IT TO DEVELOP A BOTTOMLESS SOURCE OF ENERGY TELEFUNKEN WIRELESS STATION

Now, as it turns out I've already burned through over half the glyphs, and you cant go back and redo the minigames to unlock them. And hence, if there's more encrypted little messages in these pictures I'm kinda curious to what they say.

So here is my proposition. If you have any written down, or if you aren't finished playing through and can write the encrypted text down in this thread, I will decrypt it for your and everyone else in the forum.

Cheers
