It's like a koala crapped a rainbow in my brain!

So, my friend Nicole introduced me to this online game called Odd Pawn. It's a game of thinking and riddles, but for the internet age.

A lot of it will ask you to solve the puzzle by using Photoshop (or something similar) to look for clues in a picture, solve an anagram to get a clue, find clues in the source code for the actual page, or even just utilize Google effectively. It's a pretty clever approach to puzzles in the internet age.

The first 10 levels act like a tutorial, teaching you to utilize the various "tools" you'll need to find the answer. After that, they're brutally unforgiving. When they stop asking actual questions is when I get confused, or providing much in the way of clues. Some of them require you to be familiar with certain concepts, so you're out of luck if you're not. Suffice it to say, it made my brain jump for joy and weep for mercy simultaneously.

Take a stab at it and let me know how far you made it. I left off at level 15.
