Neon Struct is a video game. It was developed by David Pittman (Minor Key Games) and released on 20 May 2015. It contained an eye sigil, making it a part of the Eye Sigil ARG.

The sigil was added to the game on release.

Sigil

Sigil appears on the shirt of Stranger characters.

Piece

To find the piece, the player should play through the game talking to all strangers, getting all geocaches, saving a displacement orb for the end, and throwing it past the ending trigger.

Discovery process notes

Early after the discovery of the sigil, one of the GameDetectives emailed the developer about it and recieved a response:

I'm not going to answer your questions directly—where's the fun in that?—but I will confirm that the symbol has been in Neon Struct since its release last May.

Notes

At the moment the piece is shown, the Stranger is saying a bunch of numbers:

34 45 20 34 35 20 34 46 20 34 45 20 32 30 20 35 33 20 35 34 20 35 32 20 35 35 20 34 33 20 35 34 20 32 30 20 36 39 20 37 33 20 32 30 20 36 31 20 32 30 20 37 36 20 36 39 20 36 34 20 36 35 20 36 46 20 32 30 20 36 37 20 36 31 20 36 44 20 36 35 20 32 45

If you convert the text from hex to ASCII you get:

4E 45 4F 4E 20 53 54 52 55 43 54 20 69 73 20 61 20 76 69 64 65 6F 20 67 61 6D 65 2E

If you convert this from hex to ASCII again, you get:

NEON STRUCT is a video game.

Shortly after this was found, the phrase NEON STRUCT is a video game became a running joke in the Game Detectives community.
