Hideo Kojima recently tweeted a photo of a real-life replica of the oddly-shaped dog tags worn by Norman Reedus’s character shown in early trailers. He’s thinking about selling them as merchandise, but there’s just one little interesting detail: stamped upon them is a mathematical equation.

His reply on Twitter and a thread on Reddit have suggested that, the equation is the Schwarzschild radius. The equation points out that,

if all the mass of an object were to be compressed within that sphere, the escape velocity from its surface would equal the speed of light. If a star were to collapse to equal or below this radius, light would no longer escape it. This is how you get black holes.

This could possibly be a hint at what theme Death Standing is following, Space and Time? I am already hyped reading that. So far we have seem all sort of creepy and weird stuff and don’t forget about Mads Mikkelsen’s squad of soldiers mixes infrared goggles with World War Two era rifles.

The more i try to wrap my head around what is going on with the game the more confusing it becomes. Oh well embrace yourself guys it’s going to be one weird journey till the game releases.

If you have your own theories about what the theme of the game is going to be, Do discuss it in the comments below
