JayEthan Haas Was RightA new puzzle game with a distinct ARG smell 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. Interspersed between the puzzles are video segments containing clues as to the origin and meaning of it all.

Even if you don't care for alternate reality games in general, there's enough here for a few sessions of casual gameplay. The game even remembers your progress for when you come back to it.

Play Ethan Haas Was Right

Spoiler alert!: After launching the game you may notice a slightly blue star in the upper left portion of the sky. Clicking it will launch your default mail client with an email address and a subject already filled in. Sending an email to that address sends an auto-reply with the following hints about each of the puzzles. I am including it here to help the more casual players along. If you want to figure everything out for yourself, you probably should have already stopped reading.

If you're receiving this auto-response message it means that I've gone into hiding. You should be careful now, too. They're likely to start coming after all of us in an attempt to keep the balance of power in their favor. But remember, as our numbers increase as a group, the weaker they'll become.

As you recruit new people to our cause, you might need to share this message as guidance for how to navigate the 5 locks to the key code...

  1. The first lock will test your memory. Follow the trail of light and sound, but be careful -- one wrong move will send you back to the beginning.
  2. For the second lock, you may need to look to the stars. They will help you find HAAS who will lead your way.
  3. The third lock will require you to extinguish all lights but one. Only with one light remaining will you be able to proceed.
  4. The fourth lock will let you move all 4 pieces through the control of one. However, unless the three key pieces are simultaneously placed into position, you will not be granted access.
  5. The fifth lock will be the toughest. Seek help again from the stars to reveal your key and the message that you must decode. The two working together will open the way.

Good luck.

Van

Cheers to Stephen and Jesman1 for sending this one in. =)

Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

Complete Walkthrough:

Puzzle 1

  • As the hint email says, this is a memory game.

  • When you click on any button, the game pops out each button in a sequence.

  • The sequence is invariant.

  • There's a reason for that.

  • Ever play the game "Simon"?

  • This is similar. You have to push all the same buttons in the same order. If you press some other button, or get one out of sequence, it shows you the correct sequence again.

Puzzle 2
Incidentally, you can right-click to zoom in and out, which is really handy for being able to make out the letters in this puzzle.

  • You need to enter some text.

  • The game has its own alphabet; roll over one of the stars to make an alphabet key appear. (Or use my easier-to-use version.)

  • You need to enter a specific word.

  • The word you need to enter is four letters long.

  • Get your mind out of the gutter. This is a kid-safe game!

  • See any four-letter words in plain sight?

  • The word you need to enter is "HAAS".

  • Obvious problem: That's four letters, and you seem to only have two characters to work with.

  • What's two plus two?

  • Rotate the two inner rings such that they spell "HA", then find "AS" on the outer ring.

Puzzle 3

  • This one's a classic game.

  • It's a simple capture game.

  • See those two lights at the bottom that aren't lit?

  • Specifically, this is the game of Pegged.

  • You need to capture all of the pegs except one.

    You capture a peg (= light) by dragging another peg over it to an empty space. This removes the captured peg from the board (extinguishes the light). You can't move a peg without capturing another peg. If you have more than one peg still on the board and no possible moves (e.g., two pegs separated by an empty space), the puzzle resets.

Puzzle 4

  • First, I'll point out that this game is controlled with the arrow keys. You may not need any more hints to figure this puzzle out, now that you know how to operate it.

  • This is a programming game. (Don't worry, you don't need to learn a programming language.)

  • How many gear-shaped things are there (counting the one that the blue circle is sitting on top of)?

  • How many green circles are there?

  • You need to program in a course that results in all three green circles (which I think of as vacuum-cleaner robots) ending up on the three gear-shaped platforms.

  • Ah, but the robots don't seem to go the same direction you tell them to. They go every which way.

  • More precisely, the blue one goes in the direction you tell it to, but the green ones go in different directions. Also, if the blue robot is blocked, your move is rejected out-of-hand, but if it isn't, the move is allowed, even if one or more of the green robots is blocked. And as you may imagine, robots can block other robots.

  • Also, the squares above the top two platforms are blocks; the robots can't pass through them.

  • WARNING: The next hint gives one solution. Thanks, Labyrinth.

Clue in the video before Puzzle 5
This flashes for just a fraction of a second during the cutscene video. Just in case you missed it (maybe you weren't looking at the screen during the movie), here it is:

54312

Puzzle 5
Zooming helps with this one, too.

  • This is not a crypto puzzle.

  • At least, not in the sense of having to decrypt something that's encrypted. You do have to work out a password, though.

  • Have you figured out the significance of that one screen with no letters on it?

  • It's a separator.

  • It's a separator in the telegraphic sense. You know, like the word "stop": "Hello stop we are doing well stop the weather here is good stop unfortunately there is no punctuation stop …"

  • You need to figure out the message.

  • Start by counting letters everywhere they appear.

  • This means the rotating messages as well as the letter-board underneath.

  • There are 20 spaces on the letter-board (hopefully, you didn't need me to tell you that part). The number of letters in each message varies on the first line but is always four on the second line.

  • The messages are not random.

  • Have you written them all down yet? (Not that you need to; they're in the next hint.)

    1. FIVE (new line) BNSN

    2. FOUR (new line) EITD

    3. THREE (new line) ENIE

    4. ONE (new line) HIGE

    5. TWO (new line) TGNH

  • Note that the order is important.

  • No, it's not 12345. That would be too easy.

  • Remember the clue from the most recent cutscene?

  • No? That's OK, it was only on the screen for a brief flash. It said 54312.

  • The messages appear in that order: "FIVE BNSN", then "FOUR EITD", then "THREE ENIE", then "ONE HIGE", then "TWO TGNH".

  • The significance of this is that the numbers aren't part of the message. They're just sequence information.

  • It's also important that every message's second line is four letters.

  • What do you get when you multiply 4, the length of every clue, by various numbers?

  • Like, say, the number of clues?

  • You have five clues, and they're four letters each; 4 - 5 = 20, which is the length of the letter-board.

  • Except that the letter-board isn't a single line; it's a rectangle, 10 - 2.

  • What if it were a 4 - 5 rectangle instead?

  • It'd look something like this:

    • BNSN

    • EITD

    • ENIE

    • HIGE

    • TGNH

  • Unfortunately, that arrangement doesn't help you much.

  • Try playing with the order. (Next hint shows the correct order.)

    • TGNH

    • HIGE

    • ENIE

    • BNSN

    • EITD

  • Columns are rows and rows are columns.

    • THEBE

    • GINNI

    • NGIST

    • HEEND

  • Still haven't figured it out? The next hint gives it away.

  • "THE BEGINNING IS THE END".

Thanks to Labyrinth (10:40) and Kevin (6:46) for their hints, with which I was able to finish the game and this walkthrough.

I've gotten to lock five and decoded the starscript;

*five**bnsn*, *four* *eitd*, *three* *enie*, *one* *hige*, *two* *tinh*, ****** ******. Using the order provided, it becomes this ilegible lump; "higetinhenieeitdbnsn"

It fits, but it needs to be decripted.

Finished puzzle five...

There are 26 glyphs visible when you mouse over the star on the far right...

It's the alphabet. Use it to decrypt the letter sequences appearing on the upper half of the sphere.

.FIVE. .BNSN.
.FOUR. .EITD.
.THREE. .ENIE.
.ONE. .HIGE.
.TWO. .TGNH.

Forget the numbers. This leaves the following text: ENIE EITD BNSN HIGE TGNH - what to do?

It's an anagram. Listen to the last cut scene (which you can replay by clicking the next to last star on the right). Does anything he says seem to fit?

THE BEGINNING OF THE END

Convert that back into the glyphs and enter it on the lower half of the sphere (no spaces).

Now you just have to wait until August...

Rumor has it that this game is somehow linked to JJ Abrams newest movie.

You can see the preview in theaters if you go to see the new Transformers movie. It's the one where it's some guy with a camcorder taping a party, when all of a sudden there's a massive explosion in the distance.

However the release date for the movie is some time in '08. I am VERY interested.

Re-read hint 2 in the hint email (shown in Jay's description above).

You need to spell out a word using the glyphs.

The word should be entered by rotating the two vertical wheels to show the first two letters, then turning the horizontal wheel to show the last two.

I hopped on over to IMDb after I beat this to see if I could find out anymore about this movie. It's listed as Untitled JJ Abrams Project (2008). There isn't much official info at all, not even 1 actor or even the director listed. Coverfield is a fake working title. There are a lot of people participating in the message boards. They hadn't heard of this game or that blog so I turned them onto that. If you want to see the teaser trailer there is the link. It's cell phone camera footage but that's all there is. From what I heard Paramount is RELENTLESSLY getting every video of the trailer that gets put up on YouTube taken down. It looks like they are trying to keep it mysterious and get the word of mouth marketing going. Anyway, fun game! Can't wait till August 1st!!

Just a comment on the connections to the game:
I don't think the Ethan Haas character from the TV comedy "The Class" has any connection to the puzzle or the coming film.
I think the name is just a coincidence.
I mean, if you watch the game's videos and the film's trailer, I don't think you can really place an NBC sitcom in there... really.

careful trying to dig too deep....
I've never seen them myself, I'm not sure anyone has, for a very long time.....

I agree Stephen, that was my impression when taking a glance at the couple of posts at that new blog. I immediately thought of the "balance of power" that Van spoke up in the first email message (noted above in the review).

It might be interesting to note

that I, too, received a bit of a personal reply when at first I emailed asking about the site. In the message I mentioned: "I hope the site leads to something rewarding for the casual player." To which he replied:
"Jay, I hope the site leads to enlightenment for all of us."

That gave me chills, quite honestly. Very cool indeed.

a little advice

puzzle 1 was very simple with the little simon says thingy.

puzzle 2 was just to make you spell haas.

puzzle 3 was just removing all the pieces leaving 1 left.

puzzle 4 you can find on other comments:D

for puzzle 5, the other spoilers are not that understandable.

B Brain: For puzzle 3:

There are two empty spaces (unlit lights) at the bottom.

The idea is to capture all the pegs (lights) on the board (except for the last peg, of course, since you've nothing to capture it with at that point).

You capture a peg by jumping over it with another peg.

You can only move a peg exactly two spaces, and only if you would capture a peg by doing so. This means that you can't move a peg exactly one space, nor three or more spaces, and that you can't move a peg by two spaces if there's no peg in between that you would capture.

Take this with a grain of salt because I cannot confirm but someone on the IMDb board just said all 5 videos from the game were posted on YouTube and were all removed at the request of Paramount Pictures, the distributor of the JJ Abrams film. I will try and confirm but if true that will end debate as to whether this is in fact viral marketing for the teaser trailer shown before Transformers.

Just a note on the Ethan Haas/The Class thing, if you watch the teaser, Lizzy Caplan is the brunette they show toward the beginning, she played the friend of Ethan Haas on The Class.

Sure enough it is confirmed. Search for "Ethan Hass" on YouTube and scroll down a little and you'll see they are the videos from this game and there were taken down due to "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Paramount Pictures Corporation"

In the second video, Van refers to "The Slimes," and how they (plural) have been showing themselves for years, but have not been stopped by those in power. The J.J. Abrams movie features a singular creature called The Parasite, who judging by the effects shots and noises would be very difficult to hide on Earth for multiple years if anybody, of any social rank, knew anything about it.

I can't move forward with the puzzle because I cannot place any lights anywhere...could the flash be messed up or not loading completely?

Very frustrating, how do I move these lights and extinguish them?

Also, the monster is obviously Cthulu, if you go to the Slusho website, you'll see it's only a subsidiary of TAGRUATO CORP. which is a powerful Japanese mining company, which mines... some new resource that only comes from the deepest parts of the ocean.

"Tagruato explores the final frontier on planet earth -- the deepest recesses of our oceans. Our scientists and engineers have created drilling technology that can withstand degrees of extreme pressure, cold, and heat never before thought possible."

Hey guys. Im a Paramount rep. I wont say where. Dont get your hopes up yet because i have nothing to do with the making of the movie or anything. I set up and host all the pre-screenings for paramount movies in my area. Really im on the bottum of the ladder but I have heard some things from reliable sources... and ill share some things with you guys abot my own experiences.

While showing transformers to a test audience long before it came out is when i first saw the teaser - still nameless. My first thought was Godzilla, Independence Day, or AVP2. I called my boss and inquired. He had no idea what it was.

However word leaked down to me and i finally found out. Now the movie comes out in 1 month and i'll be watching it in about 3 weeks with test audiences. when i see it ill report back with a spoiler, and dont read it if you can wait another 2 or 3 weeks, but itll be here.
Well, i want to tell you guys so bad but im going to leave it at this. heres my own little riddle - put it together.

Spiderman, The matrix, SAW... whats in common?
(relating to releases)

When did the teaser first appear? (absolute first)

Japaneese Cartoons.

Japaneese Toy.

" ITS HUGE - ITS ALIVE! "

optimal111mus2.

What type of preview has never been shown before a movie.

and lastly the words of haas:
"today we
remember the
ancestors that
died
never were
spawned, born
frail yet
uncannily
outspoken and
rude.
may never,
ever be
suddenly
remembered in
splendor...

Today
we reach
out to them
and prove
their deaths
were not
in vain. The first character
that those set aside
and skip will find the answer.
That is the omega. "

This proves to me that ethan haas knows the secret. its so simple to solve the last one that its hard. Just look at it.

Robeasts, Yum! The fact that something fell from the sky makes me think Voltron. But I could be way off . . .

Either way: Slusho Turbo!

I don't know if this is true but I remeber finding this link on a website for a rable top rpg called Alpha and Omega. This game is apparently the back story for that game.

Actually, the spoiler given for the fourth puzzle does work. Press each key given twice.
