Anodyne_Save_123.sol file, and possible hint for final secret?
So I was cleaning through my PC files, and came across a file located in:

C:\Users\<your user name>\.Anodyne\

and discovered a file "Anodyne_Save_123.sol" along with a readme stating that its a backup file. Anyways, I got curious and browsed a little through the file in wordpad until something caught my eye "HUGE_♥♥♥♥ING_STAG", which obviously must be referring too the blue/green elk/stag that myself, and other Anodyne fans have come across. Thought it was interesting, but rather useless since the file does not give much info, other than names, but the fact that this is a save must mean that Anodyne keeps track of the stag discovery for some reason. I found the listing 3 different times, which must mean the stag appears in only 3 locations.

Also, heres the possible final secret hint....... i found two places (possibly just one) called "BACONTOWN" and "BACONWORLD", yay! I googled for these 3 terms and found nothing related to Anodyne, so I am curious!

There are also other words in the file, but none really that stood out as much, as I havent played Anodyne in awhile, and forget some of the stuff in the game. Perhaps someone with more free time can look into this file and see what they can find? :)

I've been playing around since I stumbled across the save file. I noticed that when you get to the closed up 50th gate, the terminal says that stuff about not bothering, etc. The last line mentions something about waking up. When you first start a new game, sage (or whoever it is speaking to you) says you are about to wake up. I recall messing around in the later terminal area (the one where you need to swap alot) and stumbled across the beginning terminal (the tutorial area) Since the 50th gate is in a terminal themed setting, I bet there is a way somewhere around there to get to said 50th gate, and maybe we can manipulate/glitch our way passed it, even if its just to see if there is anything beyond. I know my theory is just a streth, but it could be referencing a way to it.

I glitched around in the nexus and found the room that takes you to the 50th gate teleporter and debug level teleporter, they are just blocked off from access via invisible walls in the empty space. ill bet the 50 gate room is gaurded in the same way, and suggest the screen transition glitch to get around. :) would be cool to see if anything is behind 50th gate at all lol.
I gotta say, I really appreciate the developers for putting all these random secrets into the game, and practically endorsing breaking the game to find them all.

The 50th gate's blockadeing nature seems to be an intentional message of sorts, so even if there was a way to get around it, i would suspect there'd just be a 51st gate or something.
