[TRAILHEAD?] Tron

Found this article on Coming soon that was just posted, regarding a coin from Flynn's Arcade and a gif with a message in it.

Anyone else seen this?

Someone in the comments worked it out the message,

Spoiler (Rollover to View):

There are a total of 5 animated gifs that once decoded into HTML give you a matrix with letters that you use with the coordinates at the bottom to decode the message: "Flynn lives"

Edit* Leads to FlynnLives.com

HomeofTron.com is also an active site. Seems to be ingame.

Hell yeah! TRON!

If you click the bouncing spider thing at the bottom of FlynnLives.com, it brings up a window with a countdown. Looking like about 2 days, 6 hours, and 40 something minutes right now.

I just wanted to make that last link clickable (extra BBCode broke it)
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=57358
and un-hotlink the images

http://comingsoon.net/comiccon/tron3.gif
(when reading the forum when not logged in, a person won't know there WERE embedded images in that post)
Also, another blogger got a coin and geeked out about it here:

p.s. (there is circumstantial evidence pointing to 42 Entertainment behind the Home of Tron arcade site *wink*)

Maybe related to a new trailer that will debut at Comic Con '09 next days. Info found here: http://tron.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page via http://encomcorp.blogspot.com/

Hello all!

It's been too long since I've sunk my 'teeth' into an ARG, and I'm hoping this might be a good contender for the next one.

I've just been contacted by a colleague who works for a magazine in NYC - he was also sent a couple of arcade tokens and a flash drive. He's going to send the contents of the drive through - which may possibly be this same animated gif - or potentially something new...

Will keep you posted. Smile

I imagine something will go down at SDCC considering the time the timer will be going off. Lot of ARG stuff going down there this weekend methinks.

I'll faint if they give out these coins at the con...Swagwhore in me, sorry... Embarassed

For what it's worth, Tron is part of the Disney 3D Panel on Thursday.

I was wondering what the first big viral to debut at Comic-Con this year would be. Will definitely be on the lookout for this... I <3 TRON so much!

The coins sure are reminiscent of the Joker cards...

EDIT: The timer counts down to 9:30 PST Thursday, which is an odd time for something to take place at Con. Floor's closed by then and most panels will be wrapped up. Though that actually makes me hopeful for something big to take place at day's end. If so there will definitely be signs of it throughout the day.
