I thought it was 'reset glitch hack' and had something to do with hacking into your XBOX. Props to GPD ('cause I'd never come up with such things being an old fart) but like the others I still would be interested what you were looking for as a message if you weren't expecting that.

OK, so the key thing was someone reading the post title literally and finding a way of making the word "IT" be "Right" in some manner. So, a few answers I would have accepted:

TI
I would have accepted this as "It" being written right to left, as opposed to left to right. A very wordplay sort of answer.

Code: Select all
                                                                                             IT


This would have been acceptable by placing "IT" on the right side of the screen in some way. Similarly:

LEFT | IT
Again, now IT has replaced Right as the answer. Would have worked.

Finally, the one I knew I would accept that was closed to the actual answer I got: RIGHT or RIGHT
Again, showing the word "It" inside of the word Right in a visual way, turning Right into It and vice-versa

The closest answer that didn't win, but gave me pause for a moment?

I Love Italy wrote:Turn right.


So close, if only ILI had pushed that logic a little more, I think there was a chance there.

And thank you all for playing this game, I was happy to see people just throw ideas at the wall in an attempt to solve it. It made me happy. This was a minimal information puzzle and you all did very well.

Yes! I get second place!

Well done - nice game Zoomzip and great guessing GPD (and ILI almost...)
