At many text terminals that I'm positive I haven't visited yet (this playthrough, anyway [and yes, I reset]), Viridian feels the need to mention that I've already found it, even though I haven't.

Why does he say this?

When I first saw this tag I thought surely you had passed out while mashing the "v" key. Imagine my surprise... – EBongo May 3 '12 at 2:36

According to the Wiki, you may have discovered a terminal that gave you a location on a previously unexplored area of your map. Since you've already found that area, or have already visited that terminal, you are getting that message.

Also everyone needs to play this game, it's great.

This. There are pairs of terminals in the game which have the same text/reveal the same location. – Gareth May 3 '12 at 20:54

The terminals are research notes left by the vanished civilisation describing their dimension. In particular, novel locations elsewhere. If you haven't yet been there, the terminal will reveal it on the map. However, if you have been there already, Viridian will dismiss the information "I've already found [that location]".

Terminal: Our breakthrough was the creation of the inversion plane.

Viridian: Oh, those bouncy lines in the laboratory? Been there, done that, got the trinket.


Oh I've already found this
