    If this is a troll, it's an incredibly well done one.

    My reaction was something along the lines of "Oh wow, that's okay, I wasn't planning on sleeping this month anyways."

    I do agree with some people, though, this doesn't really feel like Valve's "style". Still, I'm very interested to see what this leads up to, Valve or not.

    Assuming that this is Valve's work, I'm guessing that they are going to make a horror game.

    What if this ARG is for Nightmare House 3, and they've been keeping it on the down-low until now?

    That... Wouldn't make sense, given the ending of Nightmare House 2 which kind of wraps everything up.

    Edited:

    If anything it's for Cry of Fear, which has already been posted. All the "scary stuff" matches the content in a lot of ways.

    Ok well, I read some of the Reddit post and the guy "foundonthetape" posted this:

    SGVscCUyMGlzJTIwY29taW5nJTIwR29yZG9uJTJDJTIweW91JT IwYXJlJTIwbm90JTIwYWxvbmUuJTIw

    Someone said that it was Base64 for:

    "Help is coming Gordon you are not alone."

    So I just tried it myself and it gave me the same thing. This has some relation to Half-Life. I'm not sure what it is, though.

    My second assumption, and this one is pretty far out there, that this might have something to do with Adrian Shephard.

    Also, I don't think the moderators of SPUF are really tied in with Valve.

    Unless it was an actual Valve employee that said it wasn't, then we can assume that it's not Valve related.

    I doubt a volunteer mod is actually directly affiliated with Valve aside from the Steam Forums

    still I have a feeling it's more of an ARG for an upcoming mod

    You're all too optimistic.
    If this was from Valve, they would do it via a game update. It's a random youtube video, how did you even come to believe it?

    If anyone from Valve were to confirm anything about this, it would be them saying that this has nothing to do with them.

    If this is Valve related, they will keep their mouths shut. And if they do keep their mouths shut, then we know it's from them.

    There's this thing called Source SDK and Hammer. Anyone could have made this map. If it was really Valve it would have been found in the TF2 gcf or something.

    The TF2 in the quote is a typo. The map is for Half-Life 2 Episode 2.

    Indeed. The Portal 2 ARG was awesome, I'd love to have another Valve ARG.

    Makes it all the more disappointing if it were a troll/fake or for some mod, though.

    If it weren't for the fact that one of the videos (the screamer one) is in the source engine I'd suspect this of being an ARG for Cry Of Fear (aka Afraid of Monsters 2 )
    AoM and Cry of Fear are two different stories, the fuck are you talking about AoM 2?

    he's saying that afraid of monsters and cry of fear are similar because they are both horror mods and are both directed by the same person

    duh

    Thought so too at first, but naah. It's a standard HL2 texture, been around forever.

    It would've been interesting if they'd combined the normal tile texture and this variant with missing tiles to ''draw'' a QR code on the floor of the map, though.

    EDIT: then again, the pattern seems to be different here from the actual texture. Let me load up Hammer and check, maybe I'm just going crazy from the screamer.

    EDIT2: Compare the map to this screencap I took in Hammer. It's not a QR code, it's just how the texture is.

    Some folks from the /v/ thread checked. They said it's not a QR, but rather a stock texture from EP2

    Very well done and put together, but definitely not Valve.
    I'm sure the SPUF moderator wouldn't have squashed the rumor if it was actually real, because less people would play.

    Either way this is a very, very well done ARG. And you know, this could be for Black Mesa Source: especially since the poster's one code hinted to Gordon.

    I'm not sure this is an actual Valve ARG, but why would volunteer moderators on SPUF know anything about this being official? It's not like they're Valve employees.
