Other mistake: After Wade gets the second clue, he's shown in his little hide away spot looking over a notebook he has wrote in with the words Clue #2, a large number 2 out next to that, and under it in quotes "A creator who hates his own creation" with a hand drawn box around creator. This sentence is highlighted and there is more under it. This is a hand written note on a spiral notebook that he just got after getting the second clue which had only now been revealed. So he sets the notebook in his lap and starts looking over the newspaper clippings and other papers on the wall about Halliday. As the camera pans over, you suddenly see the top of the same paper torn and pinned to the wall. The hand writing is exactly the same, the boxes and figures drawn exactly the same, and is only missing the orange highlights over it. The paper is wrinkled a bit and shows the holes from the spiral as it was torn out and pinned to the wall. But this is impossible as he still has the same paper in his hand, and he only just now got this clue. Somehow a duplicate is on the wall already. (00:34:20)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: Right in the beginning, Wade hops out a window from his home and starts walking beside it to the edge to climb to the next level down. As he starts walking he passes by another window with a curtain. It then cuts to a closer angle and suddenly the window no longer has a curtain. Also a wire appears on the wall in front of him. And you can tell it is the same house, not a time jump, as the rust at the top of the window frame is exactly the same. (00:01:15)Quantom X
Wade Watts: A creator who hates his own creation. A hidden key: a leap not taken. Retrace your steps, escape your past. And the key of Jade will be yours at last.
Trivia: In the video that Halliday left behind after his death, you see floral arrangements around his coffin that are in the shape of the Star Trek's Federation symbol and one of the Enterprise. But the really cool thing is his coffin is actually a photon torpedo, exactly like Spock was put in after his death at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Complete with the blue Federation flag draped over the end of it. (00:08:05)Quantom X
