EA have started sending out viral rorschach tests and doctor's notes as part of thier Dead Space 2 marketing campaign.
Enjoy...

Have a look at some of the Rorscach tests and share what you see. First thing I see is the most obvious one, Isaac's Helmet. I can also make out Necromorphs maybe? Share what you think...

I remember seeing a post somewhere else, but someone used a black light on the ink blot and it reveled all these symbols.

I love how much detail the Dead Space team is putting into the game world. Even these little screens/art can be decoded to give hidden messages, it's brilliant!

Fixed... I hope ;)

Very creepy but it's such a clever idea for EA to do as part of their marketing for this game.

You just know that they're going to pull out more twisted stuff in the next couple of weeks. :eek:

That's also what gives me the impression that EA understands that their game is a horror game. All this promotional content focusing on important things to the game like mystery, terror and madness suggests that they know what the game is based around AND what the players want.

Interesting. I just translated the nitology on that sample you gave us.
