Just Add Water have posted a couple of pictures of their new office and often these photos can lead to an eagle eyed writer spotting clues to an unannounced game, so join me as we decrypt the hiding meanings of the photos.
Close inspection of the first picture reveals a glass topped coffee table strategically placed in the middle of the floor. Why is it there? It is out of reach of anyone at the desks and has no seating around it, it just seems to have been plonked there.
Two of the JAW team also need to stop slouching however we do approve of the fruit bowl. Sadly no hints of any unannounced games so it’s on to picture two.
Mysteriously placed coffee table returns but look, bananas have appeared in the fruit bowl! Is that a hint to a forthcoming game? An Oddworld Fruit Machine perhaps?
We can also see into the wicker basket which is positioned upon the Mysteriously Placed Coffee Table Of Doom, it seems to contain something brown and scrunched up. It could possibly be brown paper, how exciting!
Better posture from the JAW’er with his back to us, but a lava lamp in 2012? Really? Oh dear.
Still no hints of an unreleased game, on to the final picture.
Now this is an interesting picture. We can see some artwork for Strangers Wrath HD, a game we rather liked, and there is window in an unusual position. You cannot see through the window – it’s rather high up – so what is its purpose?
Some might suggest it is to let light in from the outwards facing window in the office beyond but I have a different theory. Look at the window, the the door, the the artwork. What does it remind you of?
Aha! We have decoded your cryptic hints, Just Add Water, you are making Oddworld Tetris! You tried to fool us with the replenishing fruit bowl and the Mysteriously Placed Coffee Table Of Doom we were not deceived.
You even tried to throw us off scent by making the window in the picture above appear to have eyes and eyebrows so it is ‘looking’ suspiciously towards the door, but you can’t fool us, we have spotted the hints, Oddworld Tetris confirmed!
Note: Obviously this is just me gently ribbing JAW for posting exciting pictures of doors and windows, Oddworld Tetris does not exist. However the Mysteriously Placed Coffee Table Of Doom and the bad taste Lava Lamp do exist and are, quite frankly, rather frightening.
