A gamer group is still trying to uncover the final mystery of a 2005 video game. Have you played it?
"Shadows of the Colossus" is a 2005 video game that has attracted its share of passionate fans. As the title of the game suggests, there were a number of Colossi in the game that had to be defeated. The designers intended to have 48 Colossi, but they drastically downsized in the end.
One man named Michael, who also goes by the username "Ozzymandias," would talk to other gamers online about strategy, but then he became intrigued for different reasons. In particular, there was a hidden garden at the top of the Shrine of Worship that could be glimpsed by jumping in the sky at the right time. It made him wonder if there was more to the game than met the eye and if there were other places that could be reached.
Michael and his fellow secret-seekers used a forum to speculate about the possibilities.Over 500 pages have been filled since the thread was first started. Many times the discussion turns to the possibility of an additional and final, yet unseen, Colossus. If nothing else, the discussion shows the dedication of the fans. The thread was started two years after the game was first released and still gets the occasional update today about a new discovery or theory.
