April 2016's joke for SE was a game and there was an account with the same name as it.

What was the profile URL of that account?

    Ummm.... The account was imaginary, not a real account. The game did refer to Jon Skeet, however the game did not change his rep. (probably wouldn't make much of a difference anyway, considering he has 862k on SO) – angussidney May 4 '16 at 0:42
  • What makes you think it was "tied to account"?? Nothing in the game indicates this. Maybe you forgot, you can play it here, and if you find anything to support your claim, please take a screenshot and post it here as well. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask May 4 '16 at 14:42
  • @ShadowWizard As in tied, I meant related. – haykam May 4 '16 at 21:41
  • You mean Jon Skeet account? If not, what account? Really can't see what you mean here. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask May 4 '16 at 21:48
  • @ShadowWizard, In the first comment someone answered. So yes. I am waiting for them to make an answer so I can accept it. – haykam May 4 '16 at 21:49

The 'person' you play in the game is Jon Skeet. He is well known as the highest reputation user on StackOverflow, with a total rep of > 1 million (official blog post). As such he has become one of the biggest memes on SE, even becoming the Chuck Norris of programming.

See, he was thanked in the credits:

Special thanks: Jon Skeet

Note that the game is not 'linked' to his account - Jon Skeet gains no rep from Unikong. (It probably wouldn't matter anyway - he hits the daily rep cap constantly without even trying, so this would make no difference.)
