Cyberchase Wiki

"How It All Started: Webisode 2" is the second Cyberchase webisode, and the second part of the How It All Started prequel series that was later expanded into Web Adventures. It was originally published in December 2001.


Following the events of "How It All Started: Webisode 1", the narration opens on Hacker's hangar in the Northern Frontier. Hacker, living out his exile, still wants to take control of Cyberspace from Motherboard.[1] He builds the Grim Wreaker with Digit's assistance[2], invents a Recharger Chair[3], and enlists Buzz and Delete.

Hacker scrambles Valussa's computer circuitry, shutting off its lights and causing panic[4]. Though afraid of Hacker and how he might react[5], Digit secretly tries to save Valussa by sending them a coded, pigpen cipher–style message[6]: "move moon ray left two feet"[7].

Digit's plan helps Motherboard return the light to Valussa[8]. However, Hacker learns of Digit's betrayal and locks him inside a cage.[9] Digit uses his all purpose beak to escape[10], and flies back to Motherboard Control Central[11].
