In the Insanity! and A Winter's Tale trailers, clues could be found that eventually led to the (hidden at the time) Forbidden Knowledge cinematic.

Trailer Cyphers Edit

Three trailer cyphers are found by watching the Insanity! trailer 16, 25, and 53 seconds into the video.

Blueprint Page Edit

In the A Winter's Tale update trailer, Morse Code can be heard, and when translated, says "Their end is your beginning". This corresponds to the five character deaths seen near the end of the video. In order, they are:

  1. Wes
  2. Wendy
  3. WX-78
  4. Willow
  5. Wilson

By taking the last letter of each character, in order of their deaths, a link is created- bit.ly/sy8wn. This leads to this page. Take the three letters on the blueprint, and replace "me.html" with the corresponding letter to create new links: M, A, and X. These three pages each produce seemingly indecipherable, long pages of gibberish.

Deciphering the Code Edit

In actuality, the three pages of text are save files for the game. Loading them up will produce three worlds (in the then-incomplete Adventure Mode), each containing an odd structure of walls somewhere on the island. The walls are mostly stone, with the occasional wood wall. These structures match up with the cyphers found earlier, with each set of walls corresponding to the cypher with the same letter at its center as the link that generated the world. If the walls are oriented correctly, the letters matching up with the wood walls will spell a message when the letters are arranged in order- individual cyphers have their letters lined up from the order they are read in (in the traditional left-to-right, up-to-down format), and sets are placed in the order their cyphers came in: MAX.

This spells HOWITALLBEGAN ("How it all began"), which is for another bit.ly link. This link leads to this page, which contains the Forbidden Knowledge video.

Concept Art Page Edit

Another bit.ly (http://bit.ly/UIBA7P) link is hidden in the scene where Wilson receives knowledge from the radio (0:40), which leads this page, which in turn leads to a (now taken down) page of concept art. (Web Archive link here)
