So this is it. After 7 years, looking around alot myself and talking to alot of people I'm finally setting a bounty on Hack'n'Slashs SecretRoom.lua.What is Hack'n'Slash?
It's a Game by DoubleFine.
The clue is, to play the game, you hack the game.
The game loads lua-scripts while playing and gives you tools to manipulate these scripts. Effective hacking the game while playing it.

Allready while in development the DoubleFine Team and its project lead Brandon Dillon @Noughtceratops, loved puzzles.
There are quite some involving the game and stuff around it.
A great list of all the puzzles has been done by Guillaume Fortin-Debigaré and can be found here: https://www.debigare.com/the-hack-n-sla ... ollection/What is SecretRoom.lua?
Let me quote Guillaume here:
In the installation directory of Hack 'n' Slash, the following encrypted file can be found: Data/Content/Secret/Rooms/SecretRoom.lua
Near the end of the game, in the DRMRoof room, a pedestal can be found with a book on it. Books in the game are actually pointers to the game's loaded files. If the data is not valid Lua bytecode, a protective barrier appears around the book, preventing it from being taken. Also, when a book is on the pedestal, the related data gets encrypted in RAM every time the player character enters the room, causing the barrier to appear if there wasn't one. Note that because of this property, encrypted data may be encrypted again if not careful, requiring multiple decryptions afterwards.
On 24. June 2021 Brandon Dillon confirmed that the puzzle hasn't been solved yet. https://twitter.com/Noughtceratops/stat ... 7106190347
So I'm setting a bounty of 100,-USD for it!
