      Not that unlikely, given that it may or may not be connected to pony island, a game made by the devil himself. Of course, the devil could also be just a metaphor, since the merchant was explaining their clues through a tarot deck

Also I can't believe there was no mention of the trader's stories about the old data in act 3; she mentions it was created by the devil, though whether that's meant literally is still open for interpretation I guess.

    • Rork310
      Rork310 Hace 3 meses +7

      My thoughts are Sado is a more advanced Daemon.exe (from Pony island) and the entirety of the Hex was a con on both the Hex characters and the player to get her into the real world.

    Something is off. You’ve seeming skipped over the thing that started ALL OF THIS. Remember how Luke finds the disk? Through a set of coordinates in a trading card pack. Who put that there? Who left this vital link to the old data in a consumer product? Answer me, Matpat!

    • Christian Fuller
      Christian Fuller Hace 3 meses +17

      If we’re gonna theorize, perhaps it was to keep track of where she buried it for herself just in case? Although it is interesting how the physical card game ties in to the overall narrative.

    • 🌟 Wander the Nomad

      We know Luke got the cards from Kaycee's mom(?). What I don't understand is why she left coordinates to it in the first place if she went to the trouble of burying it deep in the woods somewhere.

    This game, in my opinion, has broken the standard of gaming in a way I haven't seen since Undertale. There's so many layers and hidden bits with so much care and precision put into them all to tell a (really cool) story and yet still stay a really fun game to just play casually. Bravo, Daniel, bravo.

      This is not comparable to Undertale. Undertale is accessible. This convoluted string of events is not accessible.
      All of what was done was just failed and niche games that snowballed on the predecessors until eventually one reached mainstream attention, just so the dev can come out and go "aha, look how crazy and wacky I am"

    Hey MatPat, I noticed that in many of your theory videos, you try to prove that the feats the characters perform would render them incapacitated at best. So here is a new challenge. Take a video game character who, according to real-world physics, should be shattering every bone and calculate exactly how strong their body has to be to survive.

    What still baffles me is that Pony island and inscryption overall received far more coverage by popular youtubers than The Hex did, even if (as Matpat mentioned here) The hex has his own secrets, mysteries and darker twists, that may even help contextualize GameFuna some more. Daniel Mullins played a very long game of worldbuilding, it's really impressive to see it all unravelled.

    Don't get me wrong, the videos you make are great, but I'd love to see a theory on Terraria. There is official lore that was released on the 8th anniversary of the game and a ton of lore and data in the huge in-game bestiary. Maybe something to do with the mentions of "the great Cthulu war" or something to do with how the bosses make up Cthulu.

    Food for thought, I would just like to remind everyone that the game were playing is not actually inscryption. Inscryption was deleted, we saw it happen. What we are playing is a gamified version of Luke Carder’s footage, which is likely what P03 actually sent into the internet after everything else was erased. It was the only piece of inscryption that survived because it wasn’t part of the official game.

    • Weber
      Weber Hace 3 meses

      @Nightingale's_tail Absolutely. Because he couldn't salvage the game, my interpretation is that he took the next best thing: Footage from the game where he ENDS UP in control, even if only for a little while. And if the Old_Data allows this footage to be fully made sentient, like with the game?
      Then that means that P03 will get another chance to "win".

    • Nightingale's_tail
      Nightingale's_tail Hace 3 meses

      @Weber Very well, I'm just playing with the idea that something went wrong (because he was surprised attacked by Leshy in the end (meaning he is not all-seeing)) because it seemed to me that in this game he is not in control(his goal) hence the idea this is all that PO3 could gather after Luke tried to delete/destroy the game

    • Weber
      Weber Hace 3 meses

      @Nightingale's_tail No. That was it. He wanted to overcome the other Scrybes, and then, send out a version of Inscryption where he is in control. . . That is his goal. That's why he wanted to send out Inscryption. It was the final nail in the coffin, so to speak.
      That was ALWAYS his plan for sending out the game. He explains his plan VERY succinctly.

    • Nightingale's_tail
      Nightingale's_tail Hace 3 meses

      @Weber I appreciate the point you make about PO3 still being recognizable as the stoat; however do we actually know his goal? Originally it was to overcome the other scribes but after that what was he doing?

    • Weber
      Weber Hace 3 meses

      @Neal Morse No. I fully understand what YOU are talking about. However, I'm pointing out what makes sense, given the context of what we see, and what implications that has.
      The Stoat thing makes SO LITTLE SENSE, if you try to say it's so "other don't know" ... what others? Who else would know about P03? No one. He was a character made for a game that was never released.
      How about "maybe it's so he can trick them into spreading the old data more" ?
      Oh, right. Because that was TOTALLY what P03 was after: spreading the Old_Data. Not what he actually states is his goal is. No no. Instead, he wants to spread the Old_Data... And that's only possible... if he pretends to be a Stoat?
      Like... you see these weird leaps in logic?
      Yet, let's look at what we DO know: we watch the game being deleted., before our eyes, before Luke Carder dies. The only thing left, at the end, is the Old_Data, just moments before Luke removes the floppy, smashes it with a hammer, and gets shot in the head.
      It make SO LITTLE SENSE for the game to show us the game being deleted, only to say "sike! it actually wasn't deleted! Every thing exists online now!" when that just... doesn't make sense, from a narrative perspective.
      Meanwhile, the fact that Luke Carder is a real channel that exists, made for this ARG, shows that Luke is supposed to exist in OUR world.

    Hey Matpat, great video you have here. You and your team have seriously outdone yourselves, as always. The quality always seems to amaze me when it comes to the editing and cohesion, not even including the actual content (theories) themselves -- absolutely wild!
    Considering this, I'm wondering whether or not you and your team have been offered a deal by Netflix?
    It seems perfect for an episodic, documentary-style Netflix show that covers the uncanny and interesting ends of gaming (among other topics such as food, film, etc.) out there, and would most likely be highly profitable for you and the rest of your team to be casted by Netflix themselves. The quality of your videos is comparable to the likes of Horrible Histories (in terms of technological and editing quality) and others of a similar nature, so it's not exactly a stretch.
    It's a thought I've had for a while, and would really like some sort of reception on the topic in the future in same way, shape or form. Although, I doubt this comment would be individually noticed amongst the thousands of others amassed.
    Again, great video as always. You really represent the best parts of ESclips.

      Yes and no... Depending on where the games are hosted, it's entirely possible that he's able to make updates and "patches" to the games to put in secret codes Alternatively, he can have been hiding clues in his games for years, with most of them being unrelated ciphers, so that he can plug them in as he sees fit. After all, the other games only contain codes, not content.
