Contest!! Weekend Puzzle #207

We are having a contest this weekend on the blog!

Here are the rules, read carefully!
1. Solve the weekend puzzle below.
2. When you think you have the right answer , email it to contest@herinteractive.com with the subject line "Weekend Puzzle". Please include your name and age in the email (and of course the end answer).
3. The prize? A digital download to Secret of the Scarlet Hand game.


4. The time? Contest begins now and ends at 10am PST on Monday, August 13th.
5. One winner will be randomly drawn from all of the full correct entries by 5pm, Monday, August 13th. (We want to be fair and give everyone a chance.) :) Each contestant may only enter once.
6. This contest is open to everyone. (Even outside the U.S.)
7. You may discuss the puzzle and help each other out on the message boards here if you wish, but keep in mind that everyone who enters the right answer has a fair chance at winning.

And here is your puzzle. Ready detectives? Let your brains and pencils begin! (This is my favorite cipher!) ;)

*Edited* Due to the addition of the $5.00 pledge level on our Kickstarter page, the puzzle has been revised and corrected. The answer is still the same, so do not worry if you have already submitted.

(8.4.4.1)(2.2.2.5)(5.3.4.5)(7.4.1.6)(3.6.2.3)(10.1.2.1)(6.2.3.7)(5.8.3.2)(7.7.3.5)(10.3.4.5)(2.4.1.4)(9.9.3.1)(4.3.4.1)(4.1.5.4)(11.4.5.2)(7.5.3.7)

Good luck sleuths!

Looks hard. And,I have a dumb question. How does a digital download work?

Okay Little j, what's up with the puzzle numbers? Something's going on.... What I dont know, clues to a whole different puzzle perhaps? My friend and I are gonna look these numbers over:)

@Silvertongue -- Not a dumb question at all! If you have a promo code for a sale, discount, or as a prize, you go onto our page, and pretend like you are going to buy the "digital" download copy. After you set up an account, you type in that promo code at the checkout page, apply it and you will see the new price change. For prizes, it will change to say $0.00, and then you continue with the purchase, and then begin downloading to your computer.

@Future HeR Animator -- Hint: Each set of numbers = one letter. Therefore, there are 16 letters you are *looking* for.

i have a question about the kickstarter pledges. in the video Stuart says that anyone who donates gets a copy of the game. does this mean a game for PC/mac or for tablets/smart phones?

I think I figured it out, but the method I have doesn't work!

Hmmm...tricky! I wonder if "Pledge" is a clue somehow...some kind of keyword maybe? I haven't figured out what to do with it yet.

Time for a new hint! Some of us are seriously overthinking this puzzle over at the forum. If no more hints are allowed, please promise to post the solution after the contest to give us some peace!

This was really hard, but I think I got it! It was also really fun!

Thanks!
My sister went on a mission trip to Kenya and Romania. She'd been to Kenya before but she hadn't been to Romania. The more I hear about Romania, the more I think there should be a ND game set there. And Kenya would make an awesome location as well! :D My sister has seen many things on her mission trip, she flew over the Sahara, Paris and saw saw a castle. And not just any castle, a castle in Transylvania! She also told me that she showed some people down in Romania a picture of our family and said that two guys, 15 and 18, straight out told her that they where interested in me! One even asked how to get in touch with me! So I now have to Romanian admirers.... Interesting....

was there a typo?

Little Jackalope said...

*Updated*. Also, this cipher is also know as the "book" cipher.

This puzzle was so much fun! I thought I had messed up at first but there was a typo that is now fixed. I hope I win! Oh and LJ, was that you who posted on the weekend puzzle thread on the message boards to tell us that the typo was fixed???

Why hasn't Phoneix added a new vlog??? Is she still an intern for HeR or did she leave???

@Anonymous -- Everyone who pledges at the $10 level or higher will get a copy of the mobile game

@Anonymous -- Yes, Phoenix is still around, and might be working on another video...I'm not sure what she's up to... >.> will have to take a look.
