Hello,

„What is SG on SG?”, you may ask. Well, taking the inspiration from some users (especially from gordonshumway), I decided to create a story-based puzzle. As this will be my first attempt at such thing, it might fall short of the high quality of other users’ puzzles, but hey, we all need to start somewhere, right?

“Yes, yes, that’s all nice, but you still didn’t say what SG on SG was!”, you might point out. Well, as you can tell based on my profile picture, I’m a Stargate fan, so it was almost evident that the setting for this story-based puzzle would be the Stargate universe (not to be mistaken with Stargate Universe). So the first SG means Stargate, the second means Steamgifts.

OK, now that this is settled, let’s talk about the details, shall we?

  • There are a total of 8 GAs
  • You need to be at least level 2 to enter them
  • GAs end on 10.05.2021 at 18:00 CET
  • There are mainly bundled games, but there is 1 non-bundled game (at the time of creating the GA) worth 25P
  • You can share hints with other users either here or on the GAs, but please do not share full answers. I might add some hints if I can see you are all stuck at some point.

Your journey starts where my journey started. Good luck!

Hint 1: if you are stuck in the forest, check rurnhani's comment and remember: what you see is a naga arm from the future.

Hint 1.1: If you're stuck after reading Hint 1, remember that sometimes 3 words make 1 word. With that 1 word you can see what is waiting for you in the forest.

Hint 2: If you are stuck right at the beginning, check rurnhani's comment.

Hint 3: Those who found 7/8 should think whether the word in italics rings any bells? what is written is not always what is heard

P.S.: English is not my native language, so there might be occasional grammatical errors, but I hope they won’t make the puzzles harder or impossible to solve.

Wow, another story puzzle, awesome! And in SG universe... ahh, I feel nostalgic now. I've watched that looong time ago but it's still my 2nd fav s-f TV series. I definitely must find some time for rewatch.

Just started but thank you in advance for awesome puzzles and GAs 😀!

no, i don't even know who the gara man is.
i don't know how to form 3 normal words into a 8-char code and i fail to see any deeper meaning, both sound wise or by mana raging it
im probably just overthinking it, i'll just wait for this to end so i can see the solution :D

Only Hint 3 is relevant for the last puzzle (8-digit code), Hint 1 and Hint 1.1 are for those who cannot find their way in the forest to the gate.

So lost right now. Found c.s.g. and the hyperdrive, but cannot for the life of me figure out anything else. No idea what to do with c.s.g. and I spent awhile looking at the image and messing with color/saturation

I was stuck on this part for awhile.. suggest to focus on hint 1, once you understand that it should be easier to figure out.

In my opinion part with c.s.g. is the most NOT obvious in this puzzle, and even when you get it, it's still seems to be really complicated, I used to stop when I begin to understand that I am overthinking it, but not this time.

Yeah. That's where Im at. I got it, but it's still complicated and Im pretty lost even now

I mean, I figured out the naga arm and there is one obvious result, but I dont know what else to do with that.

Well, THIS is the task of immense complexity, and I reckon I cannot give you a clue since it will chill all the gaiety.

In this case future boy can help you :) In one of gordonshumway's previous puzzles you had to use the same method to reveal the secret

The problem for me is that I don't know what future boy is.
Edit: Figured it out.

Now I need to figure out the code is for giveaway #8.

Well, assuming you're missing the last 2 GAs (in order of appearance), I'd suggest taking a closer look at the picture with the stargate ;)

Hint 3 will be relevant for going home (i.e. last GA).

Well, that was kinda obvious, it's a shame that we didn't find it ourselves, but thanks anyway : )

Do you know that saying: "If you point the moon to a fool, he will stare at your finger"? Well, I'm that fool... I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't want any help or anything, please no! I just would like you to explain it once finished, my curiosity kills me!!

By the way, nice manicure :)

Thank you for this puzzle! I haven't a lot of free time, so I was stuck at 3/8 while trying to read the code from the image.

Now that it is over, can someone explain how to get the good ending? What hacks referred to?

Comment has been collapsed.

Hacks referred to hex, so you had to convert a word to hex to get the 8-digit code. The word is gate.

I see. I considered hex being short for hexadecimal, but never thought of using that word for the code.

but how to understand that this is a gate?

Now that it's over, can we please get the solution? I never made it out of the forest.

There was a hidden text in the paragraph above the forest picture (cheap star going) which was an anagram (hence the hints 'naga arm' and 'mana rag') of steganographic. If you downloaded the forest picture and uploaded it e.g. here, you got a GA link.
Are you interested in further solutions, or do you want to try to solve it on your own?
