An intriguing new puzzle site recently popped on the scene without much known about what it is or who is behind it. Ethan Haas Was Right is a mysterious Flash-based website that presents a series of 5 unique puzzles, some original and some rehashed versions of classic puzzle games. Between the puzzles are video segments containing clues as to the origin and meaning of it all.
Each puzzle is played with a puzzle orb that has faded hieroglyphics and looks like a set piece from Myst. When you solve all the puzzles you will be rewarded with a video of a man inside of a dark room who lets you in on who caused the “end” to come, and it’ll also give you advice and clues on how to avoid these people and the solution to the new puzzles.
A few other blogs have latched onto the game and have pieced together the theory that this game is part of a marketing campaign for something called “Cloverfield” and it may (or may not be) part of a larger alternate reality game. If you want to solve the game for yourself without the hours of work check out this walkthrough that will get you through.
