    So the Pin was not the end of it? Because I swear to Gabe if it was... I will go to Valve's HQ with a sack of potatoes and personally shove every single one down is throat.


    Without butter.
    Dude, it's an ARG promoting a commercial product. If you think the ultimate result will be anything beyond "REMEMBER TO BUY PORTAL 2 AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS" you don't have realistic expectations. The fun is in the game, not the result.

    Only on Ninja Mono? Did you tried in other modes, like in Mono Pro?

    What song is that anyway? When looking for it I only get this:

    Couple of friends and I just helped me buy the Potato in Killing Floor, and I'm at the Killing Floor Aperture log-in.

    Did we ever figure out the password for this one, or any of them? I kinda need it.

    Changed it to be easier to see the numbers in it.

    This version should be even better:

    Nice attempt, but I believe that we're going to need the rest of the images (if this theory is true), and put them together.

    It seems like they deliberately tried to make it so you couldn't read all of the numbers.

    Nah, you can read almost all of them, they just didn't show up in that enhanced version. Close inspection of the originals revealed a lot more.

    clearer version with the contrast-raped numbers visible:



    (just turn down contrast to see the numbers in the brighter parts of the image; turn up contrast and brightness for the darker parts)
