The lights are on
Bungie loves a good self-promotion, and gamers love to hear about the developer's games, so this latest news will make everyone happy. Bungie has started what appears to be a countdown site for the official reveal of its upcoming game with Activision: Destiny.
Going to alphalupi.bungie.net takes you to what appears to be a countdown site terminating next Monday, February 18. Solve the initial puzzle and you'll be taken to another screen with a link that leads you to the following text:
Our sky is filled with unseen signals. Radio-frequency emissions pulse and flit and dance all around us. Yet even a singing patch of sky can be observed, and transformed into a range of frequencies.
Can you hear it? No, not yet. It has not yet arrived. But together we can receive its call.
Imagine combining the observations of thousands across the globe on an object meandering through the heavens. The resulting array would be quite large. Quite powerful. This is your task.
Alone it will not be enough. Coordination and timing is needed. Observations must be made simultaneously.
Your window will be small. Five minutes at most. But windows may be reopened. And the distance between observer pairs will be key.
There will always be limitations in clarity, so the results must be archived for study. Highly technical observers may be required. Detailed frequency analysis is recommended.
Everything that belongs to us will be ours, but only if we create the capacity to receive it.
What does it all mean? We should find out soon.

Wow, interesting! Next Monday? At least we wont have to wait that long.
Ah, Ezekiel's wheel within a wheel. Bungie loves them some elyons.
Guess I'll be watching the site pretty closely for now. ^_^
Very exciting. I've been looking forward to seeing more on Bungie's new project!
Well this is neat
I'm pretty optimistic about this game. New IPs are sometimes a gamble, but I have a feeling this won't disappoint. Never thought I’d look forward to a Monday.
I want this game!
Does anyone knows what the tease on SEGA site is about? It was supposed to show something today......
this is getting pretty interesting!
"You can be the first to see the reveal of Destiny right here on Feb. 17 (T-Minus 5 days)." -Destiny official facebook page, one hour ago.
I wonder what would happen if every who was on this sight combined the right-hand images they received from the sight? my picture is different from the shown above... either that, or maybe we need enough people on the sight in a given 5 minute interval as hinted at by the bottom of the page.
