Tron Encom ID Badges Arrive, Employee Website Discovered

If you haven't been following the viral for Tron Legacy, this probably doesn't make much sense, but if you have been following, this is the next update. Last week we wrote about a really cool flash game discovered on an Arcade Aid website that, when finished, gave any Flynn Lives user the ability to register for an Encom Employee ID badge. Encom is the corporation that Flynn worked for in the original and has flourished to become a huge company in the sequel - Tron Legacy. The badges were sent out and have been arriving today and I received my own badge as well (see photo above) that links to a employee login on the Encom website.
The badges themselves are pretty damn cool and include a nifty Encom hologram on the bottom and a QR code barcode in the upper right. At the bottom, my badge also has Group 7 Clearance written across the bottom, which is a nod to the original because that's the same clearance that Flynn and Lora had in the first movie. If you scan the QR code, it links to a new employee intranet website with a personal login located at: encominternational.com/employeeintranet/. Once you plugin your information, including the ID number on the badge, it logs in to a employee backend complete with email and company announcements.
Most of the users of Unfiction have received badges and are trying to figure out where to go from here. There are a few random internal company emails in my inbox, but that's all I can find right now. I also checked out FlynnLives.com for updates, since that seems to be the central site for the viral, and there aren't any there yet. There is also a mention on the Encom intranet site about an upcoming Encom press conference that will take place "less than three weeks from now" somewhere on the west coast. We're not sure what that is, but it seems like something we should keep an eye on. Stay tuned for more updates and check your own mail for your Encom ID badge if you submitted for one on the Arcade Aid website. We hope there's more soon!
