The end

Do I need to solve all the codes to get the end?
Or is submitted code 56 enough and that shows the end??

Re: The end

Certain puzzles reveal story elements. Code 56 gives the main ending. But code 56 is not the final ending - there is more to be found.

You don’t need to solve every puzzle, but every puzzle is themed to the story so to get the full story you need to look at everything. So it depends what you mean.

Re: The end

Well the code 56 does not really reveals everything. So does the story completes by solving hidden codes??

Re: The end

Well, there is a further part of the main story that can be revealed, but only 5 or so solvers have managed to do so to date. The book is designed to end at the end of code 56 for most readers, but if you piece it all together you can still find more.

There are also several other hidden codes, which each - as for the main puzzles - slightly advance the overall story by virtue of the puzzle itself.

As for whether the story 'completes', that depends what you mean. Is any story ever truly complete? There may be more to come in the future.

Re: The end

Is there a possibility to create another subsection called Hidden codes so we can post hints and guides how to find them?

Re: The end

There already is another section, under 'Non-code Pages'.
