Unimplemented Feature
The information on this page describes a feature that is not available in version 0.6.5 of the game.


Runes[edit]

The word "secret"

Runes or glyphs are part of TUG mysteries.

They can be found on stone structures throughout the world and may be involved in finding instructions for strange rituals or quests, or fragments of information on the history of the world, or crafting recipes for mysterious, advanced, or seemingly magical technology.

Writing[edit]

As far as we know, following the clues spread by the developers:

  • Each rune corresponds to one of 26 English letters, though there are some extra characters that have not yet been matched.
  • There is no difference between capital letters and small letters.
  • There are currently 3 different styles of writing in use, each script varying in style.
  • The runes that represent "J", "U" & "W" are currently missing in some of the fonts used for showing writing.

Pre-Release Examples[edit]

The developers have released a number of pictures of how writing might be used in game. This gallery shows the writing/script examples without accompanying translations: Category:Writing Examples (Untranslated). This gallery shows the examples and the best guess at their translations: Rune Stones.

Scripts[edit]

Here are individual images of the writing shown in-game, next to the letters believed to correspond with them. These are not final and may change as new discoveries are made.

Cubic Script[edit]

This script seems to be used on stone engravings. Excessive use of curved lines are difficult to engrave into a stone, which would explain why this representation of the runes consists mostly out of straight lines.

Origin Script[edit]

This representation of the runes is more "elegant" than the cubic script. Curved lines are common, as one would see when when writing with a pen, or a similar tool.
