IDtenT from the Codex figured out something different:

 

Every X means a letter, and that letter means a number which is based upon their place in the alphabet.

X.XX.TX is X.XX.20X. An examplet B.AA.TM = 2/11/2013

So the Xs mean a release date.

 

I think this as well....the Xs will likely change gradually one by one until we are left with what is essentially a release date.

well, here are my guesses, X.XX.TX is X.XX.20X, if the last one is years, and the middle is month, then X.1X.20X, because there is no "0" in alphabet, so, i would say that at november/december the game will be fully announced, also, if the X at the beggining its not the day but the month, is probably a 9, maybe this friday, they will announce it. But, it could also be eternity, the name of project/game, assuming that the . at the beggining is not meaningless and the other ones are not just for separating the numbers

Interesting. Most games release in the USA first though, which is on Tuesdays, while February 11th is a Monday. Could mean an all digital release if he/she is right and the code is a release date.

 

Oh, and two games released in less than a month. SP: TSoT comes out on the 5th of March. Doesn't seem too likely.

He was using that date as an example of how the code works. He doesn't think that's what the release date is actually going to be.

That was an example, not an actual decipher.

Also, the only words in the english language to match the pattern are acerbity, alacrity, enormity, eternity and identity. Imo, only Eternity sounds epic enough to be a fantasy RPG title and also works well with the ouroboros.

 

How about 'identity'? Could be a Torment spiritual sequel. :p

Chris Avellone: [Game development studio] Obsidian has talked about Kickstarter for some time. Not to put myself or Planescape down, but the range of ideas we've had internally for a KS are, IMO, better than doing a spiritual successor to Torment, and it involves more of the powerhouses in the studio rather than turning me into the Nameless One.

 

I wouldn't be sure that it's already the spiritual successor to Torment. Also because Sawyer seems to be directing this one.

I like the idea of . and X being vowels and consonants, but how do you justify the Y? The Y at the end of "eternity" is a vowel.

 

Excepting the Y situation, "eternity" is the only word I could find that fits that vowel/consonant pattern. If you give up on that, though, there's a lot of fun possibilities. Here's a few:

 

iniquity

capacity

chastity

divinity

biscuits

****pits

infinity

dynamite

fatality

gunsmith

humanity

recruits

impunity

mesquite

vitality

nobility

rarebits

totality

urbanity

velocity

transits

opposite

debility

atrocity

circuits

Y is a semivowel. :p

This particularly rapid, unintelligible patter isn't generally heard, and if it is, it doesn't matter.

Threads like these always get me more interested in the hype itself, rather than the game it is promoting.
