Deciphered newspaper articles *SPOILERS*


Even though your character says you can only read the newspaper headlines, the articles themselves are actually also readable. This is because the articles (and indeed, every word in the game) are written in English with a character set that corresponds 1:1 with the Latin alphabet, and encoded with a slightly modified Caesar cipher. I do not fully understand how the modifications to the Caesar cipher work yet, though. The articles contain some pretty heavy-duty spoilers, so if you haven't beaten the game yet, I'd advise you do so first.

These translations are presented as is with any grammatical errors. Words in brackets are my best guess as to what the words should be in English, and question marks means even though I'm pretty sure I got the word right, I'm not 100% sure. Each newspaper has two articles, so the line provides distinction for the top article (the one connected to the headline/picture) and the bottom article.
