Bungie’s “Keep It Clean” Teaser 2!


Bungie’s viral madness continues. While I just reported the first teaser for Bungie’s mysterious “Keep It Clean” project, another new teaser just went up. Like before, this one takes the form of a transcript. This one seems to affirm that there will be a squad involved in the action, which points it in the direction of a tactical shooter.

It looks a bit sci-fi now, with captains and ships and all. Take a look:

<\\> UNSC OFFICE OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE
<\\> TAC-OPS LOGISTICS DATABASE [ONI.SEC.PRTCL-1A]

<\ * PRIORITY! * RESOURCE RE-ALLOCATION REQUEST

>> SENT: [DARE.V.500341(S1)]
>> RECEIVED: HEAVY CRUISER “SAY MY NAME” [SMN.ACTUAL]

\ PARTIAL VTT TRANSCRIPT AS FOLOWS…

[SMN.ACTUAL]: “The situation on the ground isn’t my concern.”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “I understand, Admiral. But I need –”
[EXPLOSION (4.0098s)]
[SMN.UNKNOWN]:[UNITELLIGIBLE > PANIC(?)]
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Empty archer pods six through twelve!”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Ready the MAC, and come about!”
[SMN.UNKNOWN]:[UNITELLIGIBLE > INSUBORDINATION(?)]
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “It may have passed us, Lieutenant, but it’s still in range.”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Come about. And shoot it in the ass.”
[EXPLOSION (2.3482s)]
[STATIC (3.8761s)]
[SMN.UNKNOWN]:[UNITELLIGIBLE > COMPLIANCE(?)]
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “Admiral, about my squad?”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “I’ve forwarded their NCO’s name to your –”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Enough, Captain!”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “If I survive this attack…”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “I will deploy per my orders from Fleet HQ!”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “Sir. I don’t report to Fleet.”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “And the men I want? Now they don’t either.”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “Please. Read my request.”
[STATIC (2.8179s)]
[EXPLOSION (3.0194s)]
[STATIC (7.4501s)]
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Didn’t think you S1 types ever left your cave.”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “Desperate times…”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Alright, Captain. You’ve got your squad.”
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “If I survive the attack.”
[EXPLOSION (2.9016s)]
[SMN.ACTUAL]: “And right now? That’ll take a genuine act of God.”
[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “I’ll see what I can do.”

Analysing this, we get:

  • “HEAVY CRUISER “SAY MY NAME” [SMN.ACTUAL]”: Heavy Cruiser? Will have be a naval ship like in the high seas, or a spaceship?
  • “[SMN.ACTUAL]: “The situation on the ground isn’t my concern.”: Seems to hint that we have a spaceship involved, because if they were on the seas, the word “Land” would have been used.
  • “[DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “Admiral, about my squad?”: There we go, the squad. There’s a bit more squad discussion after that.
  • “[SMN.ACTUAL]: “Didn’t think you S1 types ever left your cave.”: Sort of hints at a special corps of some sort, like the SPARTANs from Halo. Wouldn’t be surprised if the squad ends up having pimped-out armour and special training and stuff.
  • [SMN.ACTUAL]: “If I survive the attack.”
    [EXPLOSION (2.9016s)]
    [SMN.ACTUAL]: “And right now? That’ll take a genuine act of God.”
    [DARE.V.500341(S1)]: “I’ll see what I can do.”
  • In that convo, I think we’re going to get the premise for the opening mission: save that Admiral! And of course, our squad will come in, battling all odds and saving the day.
