If you haven't been paying attention, Eighty Eight Games is on the verge of releasing a new iOS game called Smarter Than You. It's a clever spin on the classic game of rock paper scissors, iOS-ized. It's got a crazy payment model too, and I'm arguably more curious to see how all that works out than actually playing the game itself. Anyway, here's the trailer if you missed it:

The news today revolves around a new puzzle released by M.E.T.I.S., the AI that is "behind" the game, or something like that. People seem to go nuts over these kind of things whenever Simogo does 'em, so, hey, why not. Here's the image, if any of you guys are smart enough to figure it out:

Smarter Than You should be launching reasonably soon, so if no one is smart enough for this, hopefully we're smart enough to play the actual game.

    First overlay the images

      Not first. You need to add some kind of hashsum before.

  • Dom2D

    Is... is that Jonathan Blow's face in the background of the puzzle?

    7th is Papers, Please.
    10th picture looks like Punch Quest.

      Email the proper addresses

  • Zaraf

    How do you add the string of letters and numbers to an incomplete image?

  • vid_icarus

    The answer is totally obvious:
    (Skynet+Tron-The Matrix)(Johnny 5)/Hal9000

    Duuuuuuh

  • Design by Adrian

    They actually made paper rock scissors...

    So this is it.
    I'm meant to be working i cant help so much.
    Blowfish is an encryption algorithim.
    The name of the game is the key
    The hex is the hash.

    Decrypt those bad boys and work out the connection.

    My name is Dan and i am a genius.
