Baulder's Gate Site Active Again

1 replies 17 views Edited Feb 29, 2012

...they reopened the official site for Baldur's Gate.

http://baldursgate.com/

Okay, not much is known at this moment, but what is known is it has been confirmed that this has nothing to do with the rumored release of the originals on Steam, and they are going to make an announcement soon.

So...a HD release?  BG3?  Only Boo knows for now, and he's not talking.

Edit:

Discovered in the source code on the official site...

February 28, 2012 --> <!-- Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine -->

<!-- For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory. -->

<!-- And then... it returned. Better than it was before. -->

<!-- Pore over the tapestries and works of art hanging from our walls if you wish, Child of Bhaal... perhaps you will find a clue. But patience, ah... patience would reveal it all. -->

<!-- As the silver moon waxes and wanes, so too does life. -->

What could it mean?  Well, if one considers the web page itself as the "tapestries", then the clue rests in this message.  So, let's look at something we can actually research, namely the line "As the silver moon waxes and wanes, so too does life"

When does the moon wax?  Here's an image of a moon in it's waxing phase...

...and according to a moon phase calendar for Feb. 2012, the Crescent Waxing phase falls on Feb. 28th.  Well, that's the day the site went active!  Okay, then, when is the next Crescent Waning phase?  Well, it's March17th.

So, in a nutshell, we should expect to hear more about this come March 17th, 2012.

These were two games that let me down so much. Fun games but way too short.
