You've just received a mysterious program from a friend of yours, claiming to have secret information. Bad news is that they've been traced, so they're forced to encode the information, and send it to you. Are you up to the challenge?

This puzzle game filled with codes and ciphers will test your logical thinking and reasoning. Don't worry if you're having some difficulty, there's a hint system included for those who have difficulty, and there are 7 included cipher tools to make things easier.

This game is so much fun, but I wish there was a walkthrough when I was playing. I've decided to make one in case anyone else gets stuck. This one is just a guide but I'll make the walkthrough soon.

I'm extremely happy that you're enjoying the game, and am completely blown away that you're making a walkthrough as well. I honestly never thought this game would be noticed enough for that. Thank you so much!

I've been playing the game and really enjoying it! (can I have a hint for decoding the symbols in Wires? the ingame ones didn't help much)

lmao half an hour after posting this i made it to 10 and managed to figure it out

Glad to know you're enjoying the game! It's worth mentioning that there is very little linear progression, and some puzzles you can access earlier can only be solved with information from later ones.

im on orbit and i straight up just don't see any of the electrons acting differently?

update: im an idiot and assumed there was gonna be a letter in all rings and didn't think that the "acting differently" was referring to the direction of spinning

This game is cool for cipher tools alone! Really liked Sid Meier's Cover Action cipher sections and as fan of puzzle games was looking for game which used many different ciphers for their puzzles. And this game is ONLY ciphers with weird, but still logical reasoning. Thank you for this project!

thank you very much for the kind comments, and I'm super happy that you enjoy it!
