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
