I would appreciate anyone correcting me if my non-HD TV is causing me to translate it wrong.
PLEASE ANSWER
THIS SECURITY
QUESTION
WHATS MY NAME

SECURITY
KUESTION HINT (It could have been a Q but it looked like a K to me)
MY FIRST HALF
IS WHAT IT IS
MY SECOND HALF
IS HALF OF
WHAT MADE IT

The letters on each block
Block 1: GMSA
Block 2: TNHB
Block 3: ZKEQ
Block 4: MSAG
Block 5: TNHB
Block 6: VUOIC
Block 7: NHBT
Block 8: RLFY

Block six has the symbol which stands for both V and U. So we cannot use both a v and a u in the answer, but we can conjecture about there being either one in the answer. Worse still, we can rotate the blocks for a total of 65,536 possible combinations.


My original ideas involved the word hexahedron, cube, square, thirdD, etc. Now I'm more thinking the last four letters have a good chance of being FISH or TRON. Polytron Productions; Phil Fish is the designer a.k.a the maker of Fez. My only problem is I keep wanting to use the word GAME for the first half (which cannot be done). The second half might involve whatever engine was used to design the game but I don't know that information. I was also thinking if it was a 3/5 uneven split, then the first three could/would/should be FEZ.
I also think it would be a good idea if someone could count the sides on the rainbow one that spins when the game is loading as it could involve that type of polyhedron. It looks like a tesseract but I can't tell.

just a thought, another thing to consider, how do you reckon we need to orientate/ arrange the answer once we've got it, like right to left or left to right and with or without gaps etc

this is the solution
include spaces between them then rotate the camera twice

Damn, I managed to figure out the word, but didn't think of writing it sideways.

very nice work, never would've come up with it being on its side.

Edit: However, there is still a ? on the black monolith room and that only provides 1 more red cube, hmmm

I got the letters lined up and rotated the screen but nothing is happening :(

Edit: Just sat here pressing RT repeatedly and then it unlocked. Weird.

I spelled METATRON exactly as shown with spaces in between the letters and rotated the camera a million times and everything. Nothing is happening. Do I need to spell it out under a certain side of the floating stone above me? I don't know what else to do.
