With the yuletide upon us I find myself in the company of old friends, many of whom I do not see with any regularity. We exchange embraces and handshakes, express affection, and swap tales of our years. The Question comes more often this time of year: What are you working on these days?
Well, it’s a little difficult to explain. Here’s a tiered attempt, in increasing complexity.
…of Assassin’s Creed, a videogame
…hidden in a book
…by encrypting it and marking certain letters in the text
…the book being a collection of selections from the various works gathered by Ezio (the game’s protagonist) in AC: Revelations as a part of the plot
…and put together as if it were actually in publication with the story hidden within by the Assassin Order
…and then sent to somebody at Ubisoft, the game’s developer.
Get all that? Good. Over the next few posts, I’ll be chronicling the making of my magnum fan opus.
