A Brief History of Cryptological Systems

Below is a brief description of ten different crytological systems used between 650 B.C.E and the present. This is by no means an exhaustive list, notably absent is the work of Ahmad al-Qalqashandi (1355–1418 C.E.), the work of Charles Babbage (1791-1871 C.E.), the Japanese Uesugi and Angōki B-gata (暗号機B型), or Purple, systems from circa 1500 C.E. and 1937 C.E. respectively, and the work of Navajo code-talkers during World War II. However, the concepts presented here are inclusive of the methods employed by these systems.

The Secret of Chimera Labs 'Room' Structure

Game Development: ‘Room’ Structure

The below is a brief explanation of how graphic assets interact with the programming as implemented Mystery on Telescope Hill, Adventure Beyond Time, and The Secret of Chimera Labs. The graphic assets used in this article are from The Secret of Chimera Labs, specifically the ‘Second Floor Cart’ conceptual space; The Secret of Chimera Labs contains approximately 120 such conceptual spaces. The style of game employed in The Secret of Chimera Labs is often described as a ‘Room Escape’; and, indeed, moving through of series of spaces is an object of the gameplay and narrative progression. For this reason the

DNA as Puzzle Design

The Secret of Chimera Labs features a puzzle about manipulating a strand of Deoxyribonucleic Acid, DNA. The puzzle consists of two redundant mono-alphabetic substation ciphers, a pattern-match, item assembly, and player action. The ciphers are redundant not because they are the same, because only one needs to be utilized in order to solve the puzzle. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule that encodes and carries genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses. Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Phosphorus are the elements which are found in DNA. The structure of

The Horizon Project

“Periodically through the course of history, opportunities to advance human knowledge and capabilites have arisen and thrust themselves before the eyes of our species which but just brief time earlier were entirely unimaginable. The taming of fire, the domestication of plant and animal, the discovery of a helio-centric universe, human flight and robot butlers are no less spectacular than the possibilities which await us now. The question which we are posed: Will human-beings become a multi-dimensional organism? Or, will we waste complacently into oblivion within the confines of the backwater 3.5 dimensional structure we have called home for so very
