A mysterious little app launched on iOS in 2014 — a puzzle game titled “Do Not Believe His Lies.” This game has subsequently been released on Android and been downloaded by more than 100,000 people, but to date, nobody has been able to solve it.
That’s not for lack of trying. People have poured countless hours into this puzzle, yet it still remains a mystery, with some of the sharpest players no match for this enigmatic app.
The description simply reads:
“Only the Weak Give Up. It always seems impossible, until it’s done!”
Fans of the game who have become obsessed with figuring it out have launched an appeal to try to bring in some fresh sets of eyes. There are small communities based around the game, and the devs seem to keep a close eye on them and to even include little hints in the game to suggest that they’re listening. So while the app has given life to these communities, the communities are now feeding the game in return.

Progress had been quiet for a while, as new players made their way through the puzzles and everyone else has been stuck at the same place, unable to complete it or move ahead any further.
At 4:52 p.m. PT on Nov. 30, a Ustream broadcast appeared until about 5:13 PM. This stream went live shortly after a player emailed the developer with a certain code at the exact right time, obtained through complex puzzles.
It would seem the code launched the livestream, and now it looks like things are starting to move forward again — but will it be enough to finally solve this puzzle, or will it just lead to more questions than answers?
“I started writing, designing and publishing my first apps on the App Store some time ago. I do all the work on my apps by myself, from initial idea throughout the design and finishing on writing the code” says the game’s creator, Lukasz Matablewski.
The game’s official website doesn’t have a lot. They have links to download the game, a link to a YouTube video, a link to send in an email, and a seven-second clip of a Ustream.
From translating morse code, to puzzle pieces that players have to print out and arrange to reveal hidden messages, to editing images in order to reveal hidden codes, you never really know what the next “Do Not Believe His Lies” puzzle has in store, or what the game wants you to do — until you figure it out.
