Mysterious Baldur's Gate teaser website appears

Baldur's Gate

A new Baldur's Gate website has appeared, fronted by that grimacing skull. Eurogamer mention that the site's source code contains a number of cryptic Baldur's Gate references and there's a wall of the original character images in the gloom behind that famous face. GameBanshee indicate that ex-Bioware veteran Trent Oster's Beamdog are behind the new site. The digital distribution service is currently working on a HD version of MDK2 which suggests that a crisper version of Bioware's classic RPG may be in the works. We'll know shortly. Beamdog say they're "hoping to announce something soon."

Here are those hints hidden in the new site's source code while you wait. Ready your dice for a perception check, here come the clues.

  • 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.
