Alright, using Lune's infos I found out that taking the numbers from the first image, from 10 to 1, and replacing the numbers, you obtain this:

the ...e e..ht .e.e. ... ...e .... th.ee t.. ..e

and replacing them with some numbers, here's the result:

the ...e e..ht .e.e. ... ...e .... th.ee t.. ..e
||| |||| ||||| ||||| ||| |||| |||| ||||| ||| |||
the nine eight seven ... ...e .... three t.. one

Some can be different numbers, like t.. that can be TEN or TWO.

 

Am I right?

 

EDIT: ATTENTION! I got something new. It's a countdown!

the ...e e..ht .e.e. ... ...e .... th.ee t.. ..e
||| |||| ||||| ||||| ||| |||| |||| ||||| ||| |||
ten nine eight seven six five four three two one

So, is the handicup a countdown?

 

EDIT2: or maybe not. It goes down because I read the numbers from the tenth to the first. *facepalm*

 

So the first picture is just a time-wasting distraction?

 

Or maybe the handicup is puzzles?

I was fairly convinced of the first clue by Lune's post. I think each clue is telling us a word, so the first clue was "The", and now the second clue will be the second word?

Alright, so what I did is just the same she did to discover that the letters are T, H and E?

 

Well, yes. *embarrassed to death*

 

So, let's get deeply into the second one. It looks like some kind of weird recipe, but I still haven't examinated it seriously. 1kg of butt, two teaspoons of Injure...

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the puzzle, but Square Enix had a project called "Flare", a cloud-gaming thingy.

 

The last thing is Square [  ] Flare.

It's a thought, my guess is if that did turn out to be the link that we take the E from Enix as the 8th letter for the 2nd word. If we are looking for links like this then I'm at a loss for the other 7 though :)

If you're right, the seventh is "when pain and injury is appealing", which tells my mind of Masochism.

 

The seventh letter would be i.

And if we are doing it right (but I think we aren't) the handicup is now:

the - - - - - - ie

Haha, nope Nocturne passed the torch for a bit... it's difficult work setting up the jam topics, making the graphics, counting all the votes etc. and he wanted a rest from that.

Wow, that's very awesome.

 

Crave [] Undercover could mean Need For Speed: Undercover because crave ~ need. It would make the second word - s - - - - ie but I'm most likely wrong.

Anyone noticed in the puzzle, that button and 1000mg (One thousand mg) (both at the very top), if you cut the first two words of "one" from "1000mg" and combine it with butt, you'll get Button? Maybe it's a hint.

Oooh, so we're connecting words from sides now? As for the first word, both "butt" and "1kg" bring "load" to my mind, so perhaps the first letter is L?

---Edit---
Uh, wait, just where did that 1kg came from? Perhaps I thought it was 1000g? And it seems it's 1000mg, actually. Oh dear. >.<

Also, the Masochism begins with "M" (while it indeed has "I" as seventh letter), and we took the initial letter from Enix, so...

so by clicking on the links that Dan has posted under handicap in the first post, the name of the first clue was "1_beginning.png" and the second was "2_TheWord.png"......... maybe these are hints as to what role they play in the handicap?

Sure, why not :P The one I didn't choose is 'SEASONS. Same number of letters, so that's one less alternative to guess at.

 

 

 

 

For the handicap... I'm completely at a loss when it comes to decrypting the second puzzle... but if the first word in the handicap is 'the', and this is the second word, it could be narrowed down to a few(ish) likely 8-letter candidates...

'HANDICAP'

'GAMEPLAY'

'GRAPHICS'

'CONTROLS'

...

...

 

And NAL, what are we supposed to do with "1000mg"? o_o

Clue #2 is GRAPHICS.

 

Find a synonym for the first word and the second word that are almost the same, except for one letter. That letter goes into the blank. Then you just work down.

 

Butt (RAM) -> 1000mg (GRAM) = G

Crave (COVET) -> Undercover (COVERT) = R

Performance Enhancement (STEROID) -> Planetoid (ASTEROID) = A

Imbecile (ASS) -> Admission (PASS) = P

Submerged (SANK) -> Meat (SHANK) = H

Friend (PAL) -> Canister (PAIL) = I
Injure (HARM) -> Appeal (CHARM) = C
Square (PARK?) -> Flare (SPARK?) = S
 
I'm not certain about the last one, but it's pretty obviously an S.

Neat puzzle, NAL, and nicely done Oracizan. I wish I'd tried longer than two minutes before scrolling down to see what others guessed, 'cause now I'll never know if I could have solved it myself, but that doesn't change that it was a clever puzzle and that this is probably the most interesting way a handicap has ever been revealed before. :)

Why does the puzzle say "V" (which means 5), since it's the third puzzle? (or is the number referring to the number of the word in the sentence?)

(Also am I the only one who Googled Oliver Farnsworth and found no important stuff?)

I'm probably thinking too simply here, but I think 1506 simply means "of". O is the 15th letter and F is the 6th. It's about Oliver Farnsworth. The word "of" appears a few times in the text, even when it should've been "have" the penultimate time.

The Graphics - - Of ...?

("the graphics must be of blue hue", for example)

I'd assume the V just means word #5 of the handicap. So "the graphics" are the first two words and now we're solving for the fifth. Either the third and fourth were too important to give away yet or too miniscule (more "of"s or "the"s) to care about.

Regardless, time for me to take a look at the riddle.

Catox: XD. That would make it even longer the handicap than the train one, probably! XD

But yes, looking long enough at that, I was pretty certain of™ what was the word there, and interpreted V as well. Good thing I didn't read further posts, since it seems to have fallen rather quickly, and thus I had time to solve it myself. ^^

I wonder if 4th word would be "consist", maybe? "The graphics cannot consist of ..."?
