What the heck is a gobbleshaft anyway?!
All you aspiring young surgeons may have noticed a mysterious ARG in the latest Surgeon Simulator 2013 update. People much more clever than us managed to discover a solution to the game in just two nights, revealing a set of hidden alien surgeries. Check out this blog post to find out how to solve the ARG, and start performing gobbleshaft transplants of your own.
For those of you unfamiliar with Surgeon “Simulator”, it rose to fame as an utterly ridiculously complex surgery game, initially created in a 48-hour game jam. It since received a full retail release on Steam, and has steadily been receiving free DLC updates.
The latest update is not the first ARG Surgeon Simulator has received – in the game’s TF2 update, there was another ARG that many fans mistakenly believed was a hint towards the ever-elusive Half-Life 3. The guys who solved the alien surgeries ARG managed to solve the first four puzzles legit, but admitted to brute-forcing the final two digits.
The alien surgeries complicate things even further by throwing ridiculously named alien organs at you. What the heck is a gobbleshaft, and where the heck does it go? Don’t worry about that, your job is to either fix up your patient, or kill him trying. And you will probably kill him a lot.
