Could a new Baldur's Gate be on the way?

A new teaser site has crept onto the thing we call the Internet, and it brings sultry promises of new Baldur's Gate content. The site plays music, has a few images, and bears a quote from Alaundo, but the stuff hidden in the source code brings the most interest. 

As spotted on Eurogamer, the code contains several juicy references. Hardcore fans of the series ought to recognize such gems as:

  • Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine.
  • For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory.
  • And then... it returned. Better than it was before.
  • Pore over the tapestries and works of art hanging from our walls if you wish, Child of Bhaal... perhaps you will find a clue. But patience, ah... patience would reveal it all.
  • As the silver moon waxes and wanes, so too does life.

Meanwhile, gossip elsewhere suggests that Beamdog, a studio headed by former BioWare dev Trent Oster, is responsible for the site. 

So, could a new Baldur's Gate be on the way? It's too early to tell, but it's looking quite possible indeed.

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
