But the challenge to win the first key

was a race designed by Halliday...

it was so hard no

one had ever finished it

The only ones still trying

were the 'gunters'...

as in 'egg hunters'.

Like me and Sho and Daito

and my best friend Hache.

Oh! And of course,

the Sixers.

The Sixers worked for IOI,

Innovative Online Industries.

They are the second largest

company in the world...

with desires of becoming the first.

This why they are putting

everything they got

into winning Halliday's contest.

Buckle up!

Set in!

We call them Sixers because

that's the company rule...

no name, just numbers.

They have a support team

made up of Halliday's scholars.

Like me, they spend all their

time studying pop culture...

that Halliday was obsessed with.

Trying to find clues

to solve the contest.

They were just following the orders

of the head of the IOI...

this dick we named Nolan Sorrento.

How did you get here before me?

Well, I didn't make a piss

stop at the hair saloon.

- What up, Z!

- What's up, Hache?

- Saved you a spot.

- Thanks bruh.

- I gotta go to the back.

- Yeah, so you could scheme coins for cars?

- That's just sad man!

- Fuel's low.

Oh but you still have enough

to pay for that Mary Hairdo.

First to the key?

First to the egg!

Hache, are you seeing this?

Yeah I see it, that is Kaneda's

bike from " Akira ".

It's a license scan

over standard frame.

No, not the bike,

forget the bike.

The girl!

I think it's Art3mis!

"The" Art3mis?

The Sixers fixer?

I've seen all her walkthorughs,

her Twitch streams.

It's her, it's definitely her.

Go Go Gol!

Get there! Come on!


You Got it, you got it!


She's not gonna make it.


Bail out!

Damn! I loved that bike.

Oh, Hache...

He is my friend.

But he could fix it for you.
