As promised, here is an update on a particular feature of a hidden area in the game. Since I wrapped the hidden stuff in a Spoiler Alert in the episode, I'll present this information in white text. You should be able to highlight it with your mouse cursor to view.



Have you ever wondered why there's a rocket behind the Atari headquarters? I sure did, so I asked my confidential informant about it. He said that Jerome and Todd used to set off model rockets of all shapes and sizes in the parking lot behind the building. They even tried strapping rockets to an RC car! They did this sometimes while a new build was compiling, and other times just for fun.
