Re: 1190: "Time"

Hey! Hum... Just coming out of eternal coma to say I started to play Sandcastle Builder. Just a couple of months after I got rid of Cookie Clicker (played it for more than a year) and Clicker Heroes. Finally I can ruin my life again!

Molpy down.

I forget who first predicted that the pattern was a date, but I think that is what's happening. March 29 of next year is a Saturday and the location coordinates (if it isn't the Chateau D'If) could be shown in the same way. I don't see any other reason for this pattern other than nerdsniping us. If...
