The Code (Steam Achievement)
« on: May 02, 2011, 03:11:59 AM »

0.1% of players has the achievement, so I guess it is working in this release

Haha! I figured it out. The achievement's icon is a button, and the only "Code" I know of that involves buttons and someone's childhood is... well, actually I don't wanna spoil the surprise. But MAN figuring the code out made me feel good. It even opened up a Wikipedia article in case someone unlocked the achievement by accident and had no idea how they did it.

Dan, if it's possible could you make more achievements like this? It could be like some sort of metagame within the simulator and would actually give the achievements purpose, not to mention make them fun. ;D

What are you talking about it's not a button. Also that achievement isn't even listed in my steam.

Thanks for not spoiling it for everyone. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. Do you have some other ideas for this? Private message me as to not reveal them to everyone.

No, but you should open them all anyway. :)

I don't get it at all, what button? do you have to type something or spawn something and name it?

Tried every reference I could remember. All I could think of was The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. 42 didn't work. At least in no fashion I used it in.

Did you work it out?

This is very interesting... i'm guessing from the "some were not born" that its got something to do with something that happened a while ago... Not sure if i fall into this category :P

The topic has been deleted, i'll send you the hint in a PM if you like (don't wanna spoil it). It's pretty much a giveaway tho...

Just been tearing my hair out trying to think WHAT CODE?!
Then I took a break and went to play some Playstation.

(and now, after nearly 8 hours of brain-ache, I can finally goto sleep to get up for work in 20 mins...)

Crazy how hard it is to figure this out,
On the internet I can't find it!
Never gonna play this again, EVER!!!
Till I can find this stupid, crazy,
Retarded code!
A person with no life could only figure this out.
