Hideo Kojima has tweeted out a screenshot from his upcoming game, Death Stranding, and the Internet is going crazy searching for hidden meaning in the picture.
The screenshot in Kojima’s tweet shows off the effects of the Decima Engine, something that Kojima has been proud to show off before. In late 2016, Kojima revealed that he had chosen Guerrilla Games’ engine to power Death Stranding, and showed off a glimpse of some of the tech in 2017 via a video of fog rolling in. This latest screenshot is a still image, showing a rocky landscape covered in greenery.

Of course, fans aren’t content to just look at the foliage, and have been desperately—and somewhat jokingly—trying to find some kind of hidden meaning in the shape of the hill or angle of the greenery.

We know that Death Stranding will be on show at the PlayStation showcase just ahead of E3. It will be one of four major games Sony is bringing to its presentation on June 11th, so if there’s any hidden meaning to Kojima’s tweet, we’re bound to find out soon.
E3 itself runs from June 12th to June 14th.
