There are 4 rows of symbols with different amount and spacing.
























Is it possible that we should consider only the spaces that are white when they should be? In this case these could actually be letters, like the first one is an L, the third an H, the last one an O... No idea, those things give me headache

In what context did you find them? Plus I think we are past the cipher stage but I'm not sure how  :D
There are 4 rows on the image with artifacts in them. First you have 5 artifacts in a row, spread out from from left to right, then a row of 3, a row of 6 and a row of 4. So before we go ahead and decipher each artifact maybe those numbers are already enough to get us somewhere.

What the **** is that? 

Im going to present a theory that @urgaffel was blackout drunk when they made it, and the only way to work it out is to get to the same level

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

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?

To me looks like:
M M Q Y M
V W  ? 
A L M Q T M
H T M L

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 ;-)

The text on the top is swedish translations of the lyrics.

More @urgaffel easter eggs. The heart gif is on the path "kebab_nomore", which I can't think of in any other way than as a Haddaway reference.
