I shut down the power for the night. we must conserve the gasoline, so i am told, because the Emperor is in doubt of the usefulness of our research here at the Rising run Facility, and that resupplying the facility will now occur every other month rather than our usually scheduled weekly drops. Hopefully, the new meteor site produces higher grade samples, ones we can actually use. Wait is that a plane I hear. The resupply is not scheduled for another week. I see a bright light in the sky...

Solved it using a Cryptogram, letter changes are here. By the way, where is this cipher located?

So I'm pretty confident that I solved the underwater cipher by the power turbines:

kGDVw3o.jpg

"Richtofen must understand that using these teleporters to jump between dimensions is both dangerous and imprecise. At any point, the fabric of space-time could collapse if the proper amounts of 115 are not maintained. l am also concerned about the unknown effects of trans-dimensional jumps. l have noticed even with my brief travels that new memories and emotions have flooded my mind, suddenly appearing from nowhere. l am also sure something is happening on a molecular level as well."

Here is the final cipher text I used:

1u_oeRh_ls_ndpisusu_eaiie5lansiano_h_.rc_mtlsnntmd_dnsecpootae_o_apaauldhe_a_y__hpwdhvflpon_nrry__narc_itteheaef_efdbd_e_emsbeopseonedt_ear_e_l_amyio_lo_lfir__ncm_sittespo_ounlibeenemnot_apmwhvoptbntoanopgn.yetsamapeaemeira_tptto____wi_locretleaoilt_s,hrmo_m_cosueen__trne_hme__tunlimefon-c_uahisfjea_tdes_ned__ttidssin__u_iihartaadm_tcsisii_nghtmunfens__m,oero_memnwg_arpnt__g_um-_rvanoe.ege_fvaskatfetnoasiencf__n_lirev.niharodlluense_cAstlso_e_onebo_eesds_-r1otih._mfllwe_rujrcod_wdn      

To get to this point I had to "massage" a columnar transposition cipher to get 20 columns made from 19 columns originally. Basically spaces had to be added that aren't readily apparent in the original ciphertext. 

Then you get a weird wrap-around version of a transposition cipher. I've color coded it for (slightly) easier reading:

Start with the green "Richtofen" through the cross-over, and then end with the red "well."

I've never heard of this happening with a simple columnar transposition, so I'm not entire sure that it actually is. If someone knows, please fill me in!

Nice nice :)

Please let me know what exactly you mean? 

I think its the part about 20 /19 

With 21/19 it should be more clear 

Count the letters between the numbers (21) 

You know what i mean?

TGca Cipher Solved:

" Entry 56: Just finished a very long shift. We were awaiting the test subjects arrival from the castle but they never showed. Those group 935 pigs didnt even bother to radio the asylum to let us know they were not coming. I am getting sick of those arrogant scientists. They have given the asylum the nickname Verruckt Asylum. I loathe it. We are as every bit as important to the completion of project as they are."

So this was simply binary mapped to DNA codons. Here is a link to the site where I found the connection. (Forgot to add it lol) http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/134672-harvard-cracks-dna-storage-crams-700-terabytes-of-data-into-a-single-gram

It has been speculated that this is not the end of this cipher. It could potentially house another meaning which is revealed by the way the TGca pairs are sequenced. Or it could have something to do with the torn up papers strewn across the map.

If we could gather all the scrap images, that would be great. There have been a fair few on Reddit but I haven't saved them.

Also, the transcript for the opening prologue and the ending cinematic are now included in OP.

Prologue

Spoiler

 

*Special thanks to @DragonGJY for his translation of the prologue, as the Japanese Officer is actually speaking Japanese in the video*

Japanese Officer: Bring those stowaways to the deck!
*Takeo is punched in the face by the officer, who then holds a katana to him*
Japanese Officer: You shameless rat! You dare betray Japan and the Emperor himself?!
Tank Dempsey: Take it easy, Tak.
*Japanese Officer holds up the Summoning Key*
Japanese Officer: How did you all manage to recover this lost artifact?
Dr. Edward Richtofen: I'm sorry, I don't speak Japanese.
Japanese Officer: Are none of you going to answer me?
Tank Dempsey: The object in your hand, it's gonna bring you nothing but pain. Believe me, I know!
Japanese Officer: Throw these useless rats into the ocean!
Takeo Masaki: I am an envoy of the Emperor himself!
*A large wave hits the boat, knocking over the Japanese Officer and his crew*
*All-out slaughter-fest commences*
Takeo Masaki: I am no traitor!
*Summoning Key begins rolling towards the edge of the boat*
Dr. Edward Richtofen: No no no!
*Takeo catches the Key shortly after it goes over the edge*
Tank Dempsey: That was close!
Dr. Edward Richtofen: Yes, a little too close!
*Nikolai sees a fire that will shortly cause the boat to explode*
Nikolai Belinski: We must go, now!
*They all jump off the boat, grab a piece of boat remains, and swim to a nearby island*

 

Ending Cutscene

Spoiler

 


*Origins Takeo walks up to cell holding Takeo 1.0*
Takeo 1.0: Your eyes... I recognize them. Almost as if they were my own.
*Origins Takeo opens cell door and walks in*
Origins Takeo: Takeo Masaki. I did not believe I would find you in such a place.
*Origins Takeo sits down next to Takeo 1.0*
Takeo 1.0: I was a warrior.. I fought many great battles, for the glory of our nation. For the honor of the dying samurai spirit.
*Origins ending cutscene music begins playing*
Takeo 1.0: I was... a hero. 
Origins Takeo: I... share, this memory. I have lived many of the same victories.
Takeo 1.0: I later learned that my victories were... unwelcome.
*Takeo 1.0 stands up in anger*
Takeo 1.0: His betrayal was driven by petty jealousy. He knew I couldn't do anything.
*Takeo 1.0 walks out of cell and towards Nikolai, Richtofen, and Dempsey*
Takeo 1.0: But I fear not even my own death.
Origins Takeo: Punishment is one thing, this is... cruelty. Who could be so evil as to desire another soul to endure such suffering. Who amongst us could be so dishonorable?
Takeo 1.0: Are you so blinded by your own loyalty? Your orders came from the Emperor himself.
*Origins Takeo goes into a haze of confusion and disbelief*
Origins Takeo: My life... my path... is built upon a lie. This realm may have been corrupted and consumed by evil, but we possess the power to change things.
*Origins Takeo pulls out his katana*
Origins Takeo: A better tomorrow is only possible if we blow away the ashes of the past.
Takeo 1.0: None of us choose the means by which mercy will find us... But I am at peace. I understand what must be done. Will you be my kaishakunin?
Origins Takeo: It is my honor.
*Takeo 1.0 gets on his knees and draws his sword, while Origins Takeo (behind Takeo 1.0) raises his sword. Takeo 1.0 puts his sword through his abdomen and Origins Takeo cut into his neck*
*The Summoning Key absorbs the life matter of Takeo 1.0*
Tank Dempsey: Three down, one to go. Guess that's you next Nikolai.
Dr. Edward Richtofen: Nein, there is something else we must do. There is a chain of events that must be set in motion.
*Animation of going through a Rift portal*

@Draz A very rough translation from Google is as follows (I think the gun reticle messed up some of the words, plus it's pretty dark :p):

"But there is the fact that Nikki is a hero to the common people, Nikki lives to the presence of the pre-is the cornerstone of the common people of the heart that inspire doubts about the existence of the pre-), however, the necessary anymore withstand this torture Nikki gives instructions to the operatives that dwell in the facility of the nine divisions. Takeo Masaki unexpected should out of the island to live with 0 f"

I can edit the brightness on the pictures, check my edit soon. If anyone wants to have a clear look at it, it's in the boss fight room, where the big Trasher is, next to a corpse.

I tried to clear it up for a while (through brightening, structuring, etc.) and couldn't do much to get a better translation through Google's image translation app, but if you can then that would be awesome!!

Okay, I tried the Google translator thing as well and got pretty much the same translation. I've submitted this to a translation sub-reddit though, so hopefully they can help. I'll keep you updated!

I was looking at those too, try /r/translation as well if it's taking a while!

EDIT:

It appears that someone has responded to @Draz's Reddit post and provided a rough translation (written from the Emperor's point of view):

Quote

Although we have tried to eliminate him making it seem as if he were killed in an accident, he has managed to escape every time by some miracle.

The fact that he is regarded as a hero by the commoners is unbearable, and it shall eventually led to the existence of myself being questioned.

He taints the commoner’s belief in myself, I who should be held in the highest regard by them. But it is no longer necessary for me to bear this suffering any longer.

I have given the order to the operatives in the 9th division/plant/facility.

They must not let Masaki Takeo leave the island alive.
