Flynn Lives Viral Kicks Back In + New Arcade Aid Mini-Game!

Give or take the otherwise abundance of Tron Legacy related media hitting the web recently, from posters to more posters to Daft Punk updates and so much more, we haven't actually seen that much from the viral side of things since the End of Line Club was discovered at Comic-Con earlier this summer. Well, the viral is definitely kicking back into gear in prep for Tron Night next week (that's now sold out!) with an update to the popular Arcade Aid mini-game where you must identify video games on a giant pixel graphic cityscape. This time they've expanded the image to be three times bigger than before, with over 167 new games to find!
To kick off this viral update, I received a package from Flynn Lives today containing a Perler Beads pixelated version of one of the images from the video game map. The one I received, as seen above, is for Battletoads (#91 if you want a hint), the classic 1991 NES video game. You may remember that last time we had to solve half of this Arcade Aid puzzle (your old results will automatically load when you sign in) those who finished the map would receive a nifty Encom employee badges, so this is a puzzle you should definitely finish, as I'm expecting that we'll all receive a mailing with something awesome once we figure out all of the video games.
For now, we're trying to finish the Arcade Aid game to figure out the next step. I highly suggest making sure you have an account with a legitimate mailing address before you login and play, but you better get going so you don't miss out on some sweet collectible Tron goodies from this part of the viral. Stay tuned for updates!
Done & done! It's great that Disney and all involved have actually INVOLVED us mere mortals, instead of just giving swag to critics/bloggers/blaggers for doing nothing at all... 😛

Did they just send that to you out of the blue or what? I've been following the ARG for quite some time now and haven't seen anything like that in the mail . . . .

I would've said that was referencing Chrono Trigger.
