You have a good point. I also just noticed that the "D" (or "P") and "C" are cut off right at the bottom,but the i or T is cut off before it touches the bottom.

Edit: Wait, I just realized no one is mentioning the quote. Could it have a clue?

Edit edit: Also, is LemonLime the usual name of the person who shares the images? Could that ALSO be a clue? :P

I drew a really quick thing of what I can see here. The black objects seem to be holes in the image, while the white appears to pop out.

Please feel free to correct or make a more accurate version, if there's something wrong with mine :D

Yep, that's pretty accurate (except I think the blob in the middle looks kind of like imgur cloud icon :p)

Good image, though, the black objects are popping out, and the white spot is a hole. This makes me wonder, could the O be an e? This is getting so confusing. Eventually we'll probably be seeing every letter of the alphabet! :P

Edit: Great, now I just realized that, if these letters ARE a url, the image doesn't have to be a jpg!

My brother remembered something Rand said at Mysterium 2009, in answer to a question about other games Cyan was working on:

Rand Miller wrote:…there was a project called Abduction which was more of a single player game that we thought was really cool, well, some of us…


ODUCTiN
Abduction

Maybe?

Wow, that makes a lot of sense! Great find! An old farmhouse could have been abducted or something, and brought to an alien world. Plus, farms have a lot of plants and are popular spots for crop circles!

Edit: Also, the circle in the middle could be a flying saucer? And the O (or whatever it is) has a lot of "echo" to it, which looks kind of like the circular beams you see when a flying saucer abducts someone.

it probably is not important and may just be MY eyes but, If you look close the upper Line type object it has two "strings" coming off it and there is also a line coming down from the U

eaa just popped back into cyan chat! Pretty casual conversation so far (he's still on if you want to say something to him!)

<@LemonLime> You guys busted up that puzzle in record time.
<@LemonLime> it's almost as if you're getting back into the swing of this

Uh, what's the story behind the "LemonLime" handle? Could that be part of the clue? 7Up, Sprite, Mountain Dew...

Well, "sprite" is a video game term, though one not usually associated with Cyan.

The first letter on the left of the image is a circle with a line through it so I'd say its either a zero, or more likely to my eyes it's a Greek "theta", though I'm not sure if that fits into the imgur URL idea

I'm pretty sure Lemonlime is just an alt nickname Edoublea uses. No subliminal messaging or anything.

Hmm, does his comment mean that we've done all the solving we can? Or do we keep looking for an imgur URL in there, or something else?
