Over the weekend what is believed to be the official Dead Space twitter posted a link to the image embedded on this page - a teaser of sorts with a hidden message.

It didn't take long for the message to be decoded, with several of Kotaku's readers able to crack the code. The message was written in Unitology, a unique script of the fictional religion featured in Dead Space.

The message states: "The nightmare is over but it will not end."

That sounds suitably bleak.

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
