It isn't specifically revealed that this is W. D. Gaster talking, but there are some telling clues -- the text, once decoded, reveals details of an "experiment," and there are several other characters in the game who are named after classic Windows fonts, like "Sans" and "Papyrus." Fans have deduced that the "W. D." in the mysterious character's name probably stands for "Wingdings."
Finally, there is a secret room that only appears when the fun number is changed to 66. When you enter, you meet a weird character with a fucked-up face who never says anything, and vanishes when you touch him. Fans are pretty sure that this is Gaster himself.
We can't show what he does if you change the fun number to 69.
Aaand, that's it, that's the only payoff you ever get for the whole mystery. Unless there are more Easter eggs that even hardcore fans haven't discovered yet, and we wouldn't want to discount that.
Oh, and there's this: On the screen that asks you to input your character's name, if you type "Gaster," the game crashes and restarts. And we're not sure who put more thought into this, the developers, or the fans who worked all of this out somehow.
You know all those facts you've learned about psychology from movies and that one guy at the party who says, "Actually ..." a lot? Please forget them. Chances are none of them are true. Take the Stanford Prison Experiment, the one famous psychology study people can name. It was complete bullshit. Funny story actually, it turns out that when you post flyers that say, "Hey, do you wanna be a prison guard for the weekend? Free food and nightsticks," you might not get the most stable group of young men. So join Jack O'Brien, Cracked staff members Dan O'Brien and Michael Swaim, and Psychology Professor Martie G. Haselton of UCLA as they debunk Rorschach tests, the Mozart effec,t and middle child syndrome, so soon you can be that person at the party who says, "Actually ..." Get your tickets here!
