    Could be Flags.

    On that logic the letters I found were LnHYGAT but that doesn't throw anything up

    Length of a word perhaps ? First word 5 letters? Second word 3 letters then 6 and 4?

    I think all ciphers leads to a goo.gl short link also the phone number

    At Codemasters...

    Christina: Alright, we need to do something cool to celebrate all the gossip from our fans, but it has to be cryptic! Anyone in the mood to have a shot?

    urgaffel: Painstaking barons burningly drug soldiers in huge piles of walenets.

    Christina: Perfect.

    ;)
    Would you believe me if I said it was a complete coincidence?

    I am quite certain I've extracted all artifacts from the image. I've edited them to only show the missing pixels (so it's easier on the eyes lol). Here they are in order from left to right, row by row. The final artifact on the second row consists of two pixels, a space, and another two pixels so I assume those four pixels are one artifact. And on row 1, artifacts 1 & 2 were right next to each other and artifacts 4 & 5 were right next to each other. Not sure if that's relevant. I like to think they were best buddies!

        

      

         

       

    Now let's figure out what they mean! :smile:

    Counting the pixels per artifact gives us:
    6-6-7-4-6
    5-7-4
    5-4-6-7-4-6
    6-4-7-4

    Making each counted row a single string:
    66746
    574
    546746
    6474

    Or adding them together:
    29
    16
    32
    21

    And then making that a single string:
    29163221

    Or adding together:
    98

    Turning them into letters is a bit difficult. Some that I can recognize quickly:
    ? ? ? Y ?
    V W ?
    N ? ? ? T ?
    X T M L
    Looks to me like "You Always HTML."
    I am offended good sir, I do not.

    Q letter could be @ instead... or not  :p

    That's some really good graft, mate. I'm inclined toward letters more than numbers but I have nothing yet.

    Ive tried it against old Greek , Norse and Latin alphabets and also unusual expressions of Morse code. I feel something way  more obvious is at work though.

    Maybe I am completely off but could those signs be an inlay for a puzzle? I mean a crossword one?

    I tried these patterns on a game of life board (https://bitstorm.org/gameoflife/), but did not find anything useful.

    Well... to me the first three rows says
    "masta 
    von
    blasta"
    not sure about the last row, but might be "kiss, hearth, much love".

    Oh dear... I didn't even consider that the last row said html.

    @urgaffel. Du förtjänar både applåder och stryk ;-)
