Description This utility has a simple enough interface hiding layers of complexity. It's definitely not designed for customization, though, with only the option of a simple "Run."

You follow the breadcrumbs, finding the Golden Chip's current location. Avatars drift effortlessly through a field of circuitry and floating lights.

A shimmering, metallic figure makes an exaggerated gesture of rage, thrusting its arms towards you as though screaming.
Simultaneously, you receive a long message filled with incoherent strings of curses that eventually dissolve into random letters and numbers.

You found: 6 Golden Ticket
