Trials HD riddle solution revealed

Wednesday, 11th April 2012 06:22 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A famous series of clues within RedLynx’s 2009 release Trials HD have been revealed to point squarely at – well, not a great deal.

In a drawn out video produced by a proactive fan called FatShady in consultation with RedLynx creative director Antti Ilvessuo, players are shown the mysterious and puzzling mathematical symbols and signs, references to Leonardo da Vinci and Darwin, and other signifiers.

The puzzle’s “solution” is that all of the clues refer to mysteries, human ingenuity and creativity, or curiosity.

Kotaku made the puzzle famous in mid-2011 by publishing FatShady’s compilation of clues, including an interview with RedLynx in which the studio maintained the puzzle had not been solved.

Trials Evolution, the sequel to Trails HD, will release on Xbox Live Arcade next week.

Thanks, OXM.

    Thank you, Thank Redlynx forum members, Thank Redlynx and Thank Antti for this amazing journey. I’m more of a casual Trials HD fan but this was something else.

    Also thank you VG247 for posting the final vid and “solution”.

    EDIT: For some reason my comments on this post keep getting deleted or disappearing :(
    Still, even though this is my 3rd post, I feel I should do it. This was a really inspiring and rather mind-blowing story and I have to thank everyone involved. Also, Trials Evolution can’t come soon enough!
