Enigma 23 – First Post!

Hello, welcome!
Welcome to ‘Enigma 23’, the pseudo real game developer for the aspiring designer, Peter Law. This site is my portfolio site, I will be adding projects I work on here to show off my work. The reason I’m using ‘Enigma 23’ for my portfolio, and not my name, is because all of my designs have hidden in them, where possible, ‘The 23 enigma’

What is the 23 enigma?

“The 23 enigma refers to the belief that most incidents and events are directly connected to the number 23, some modification of the number 23, or a number related to the number 23.”

How Will The 23 Enigma Be Incorporated?
The number 23 will be used, hidden, referenced to, obscurely used, obviously used in anyway possible! The 5 golden rules of Enigma 23 are:
1– Game name must have a sum which equals 23
OR
1– Game name must have a ref­er­ence to 23
2– Incor­po­rate 23 into the game logo
3– 23 ini­tial achievements
4– 23 ranks/ lev­els (if game includes a lev­el­ling sys­tem)
5– Release date with a sum that equals 23

Take a look at the logo above, what is its link to 23? When cre­at­ing the logo for ‘Enigma 23′, I wanted it to have a ref­er­ence to the num­ber 23, and be easy enough to be used in dif­fer­ent styles. Vana­dium has the atomic num­ber of 23, and the atomic sym­bol is drawn as 4 cir­cles with 23 atoms placed around them.

Unfortunately, the twitter account ‘Enigma23’ was already taken, as was ‘Enigma_23’, so! To the alphabet numbering system I went! And now we have, en9g131, but how does this work out to 23?
I = 9
M = 13
A = 1
9+13+1=23!

I’ll finish this post off with some ‘facts’, facts and different ways to work out ’23’, taken from the Jim Carrey film ‘The Number 23
