    It would seem that the number on the splash screen of obsidian.net is indeed a countdown. I suppose we can expect a reveal on Friday then.

    More cryptic writing:

    The book unread is written. The reason we don't explain it is the reason we use it. Its power is in its mystery. That is the Leaden Key, in part, in whole. Is it clear?

    Digging for truth buries the seeker.​

    Did you read that last part? Stop trying to figure out what the game will be or Obsidian will murder you.

    Update
    Oh yeah, I forgot to include the new page source text. It reads:
    <!--. X . X X . T X -->
    <!-- Two centuries ago, your divine champion told the people of Dyrwood to grovel at his feet. If you've come on pilgrimage to the blasted crater that was our reply, Godhammer Citadel is *that* way. -->​

    Oh, this useless cryptic stuff. It's like the initial narration of bad fantasy.
    "When Kpoglath of Progbavlia sailed across the Multi-Headed Streams to join the League of Glocpat in its struggle against Jambalayagax and Chattadega Tallanooga, one of the Dlofasdléath M'ruivrenvalar attempted to assassinate him with his Sagnamplab'ktorr'b'nar imbued with Manawawa poison. But the evil Lord Mal'hef'eek'yus had other plans for Kpoglath..."

    And then you see the film\play the game, and only after understand the stupid narration, you'll realise how everything could have dove without it. The same is with these cryptic announcements.
    They serve no other purpose than to stir shit up.
    But I suspect you'd be dead curious even if Avellone said "on Friday we'll announce the end to the long debate, and announce whether we at Obsidian drink Pepsi or Coke."

    Chris Avellone already tweeted about the number being a countdown (yesterday, I think?), so it's not really news.
    Looking forward to Friday. Weekend ftw.

    Is it at all possible that Obsidian could be given the chance to make a TES spinoff?

    Nah... impossible.

    Then again, Zenimax likes money, and they know Obsidian can deliver an open world game.

    That sounds pretty TES (MK-style) to me.

    They're an independent studio, they'd be numb to being violated and used.

    FO3 to the Black Isle guys would be like watching Bethesda buttfucking your kid, but that just encouraged them to make a game for them.

    These messages seem to be written by The Sphynx from Mystery Men. They're terribly mysterious.​


    I've never been big on teaser campaigns that show so little. If you're going to tease a little skin, show some curve, show a little bit of nipple slip. Obsidian gives us the burka treatment.

    Marketing Decline.

    Guys, I think I've cracked it! It's a message... for us!

    These words are meant to hype the masses with minimal effort by leading them to seek the hidden meaning without ever finding anything. For they have no meaning, except to their intended recipient: a lone voice crying out in mourning, lamenting the loss of classic CRPGs. The Codex.

    This refers to our tender love for RPGs, how it unites our fellowship of BROs, and how as BROs we must stand vigilant together against the forces of the decline. We will know Obsidian by their light (MCA) and stand with them in the darkness (the Era of the ARPG, when all must do what is necessary to survive).

    Long ago, Todd Howard came before us and told us we should be grateful, for without him the Fallout series would be dead. We responded by unleashing all of the weapons available to us - flaming, trolling, and even well-considered criticism. Also note the use of first and second person to subtly hint that they're on our side.

    The next message will tell us that we should hold fast and not despair, for soon they will return to drive out the harbingers of the decline and rekindle the glory of years past.

    ...

    I want to believe. :(

    It reads kind of Kirkbridey.

    I still cling to the hope that Obsidian will get their hands on TES.

    A TES prequel (in Mannimarco's era for example, so they could do something similar to KOTOR and be unconstrained from Bethesda's nonsense) by Obsidian would indeed be glorious.

    Again, if anyone is publishing this it is Square, as Obisidan's handler for DS3 listed "project x" on his resume months ago.

    There is no publisher on Earth that would fund a single player PC exclusive cRPG (of they scope they want to make this). None. This has to be the KS project.
