As it became clear that a larger metagame was taking shape, fans congregated at places like Game Detectives, a subreddit that’s become famous for decoding such puzzles. Through careful experimentation and data mining (a process through which players examine a game’s code), diehards have discovered 19 sigils. The most recent one was found in You Have to Win the Game, a retro platformer released back in 2012. The sigil was presumably added through a patch at some point, but no one’s quite sure, really.
Here are the collected sigils:

This app lets you “record, transcribe, and bookmark key moments in user interviews.” The bookmark feature sounds nice, during an interview you can “knock twice on your phone to bookmark while your screen is locked.”
I like this concept. Take a pic, text it to 251.265.2848, pay two bucks, and send it as a postcard. I’ll try it on my next vacation.
“If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there.”
Chekhov, master of the short story, gave this advice: If it’s not essential, don’t include it in the story.The term has come to mean “an insignificant object that later turns out to be important.”
Prisma is fun. I ran this photo from the Maryland Zoo’s otter exhibit through it:
