Mini Metro

  • Joshrl/MachMatic – Found the sigil and noticed the similarity, uncovering the ARG; Nearly completed the solution for the piece
  • Nint8835 & Six – Reversed engineered the code, seeing a node had to be connected twice. Nint8835 modded the game for it to always meet the required conditions and the piece was found. (Someone found out later that ghost lines did count and how you could find the piece legitimate).
