Go here and you'll find several laugh

Eeggs

Egg Heaven

The Discworld

There are so many out there. Black Dahlia has some of the best. All the Lucas Arts funny games are full of them. The Indiana Jones and the IF has great ones. Pandora Directive has a secret room in the pyramid among others and GK3 has a special easter egg key you can access.

Start the hunt today laugh

I love easter eggs. laugh

I have found more - but many are mentioned at boards that are devoted to just that game. I usually pull a google search for the game name and the word eggs or easter eggs and they'll pop up. I forget what game you meet a ghost in a subway station - It's in Broken Sword 2 (many eggs in those two games) but if you give a chocolate bar to the ghost - you'll get a real treat when you stroll down the abandoned subway line to the left. A secret entrance will appear...and some cool stuff awaits. laugh

I love the one in King's Quest 8, where the easter egg is a risque off the wall conversation between your main character and Queen Freesa. The Eeggs is a great site. I just wonder how people come across all these!

I liked the one in Blackstone Chronicles. You could punch in John Saul in the computer database of patients and see what he was admitted for. I believe it said he was released to his real-life wife into her custody. heh

My problem with Easter Eggs is that it's so utterly non-intuitive to find them, that you have to rely on websites for the information, which sort of seems counter-intuitive to the fun of the eggs. Maybe I just don't explore enough in games. But I certainly don't put the donut in my pocket, stand on my head, kiss the rat and cough, which is what it seems like you have to do to uncover these little beasties.

I do love the one in Black Dahlia, when you spin the boy around until he gets irritated.

There two in Exile, that I know of, one in Saav's study in J'nanin (look around the hammock), and one on Atrus' desk in his study in Tomahna. I've heard there are others, but couldn't say where.

Hey!

How about an easter egg on Gameboomers site???

As we all know how awesome this site is, I have any doubt that Bob, the great webmaster, can find some tricky way to install one (or more) of these for the pleasure of all easter egg hunters happydance

And if it is done please let me know some hint about finding the hot spot... laugh (well I had the idea first after all! whistle )

It WOULD be nice if there were a special place where easter eggs in games could be posted on GAMEBOOMERS, especially since I usually don't get to the games until months after they are released and would be able to view the list while I'm still playing the game!

Hey! yeah, an egg on the Gameboomers site WOULD be cool! I know sites do this...check out this one just look at the Egg 2000! logo on the top left, click on the space between the 1st and 2nd zero and see an egg! Appropiate for that egg site! smile Also, I love looking at eggs, and I always seem to find them too late, a nice list would be great! Oh well... that's alot of work. They are fun aren't they? Thanks for the links Laura!!! wave

That is a cool idea having an egg on site laugh

I was just thinking that reviews of games should include any eggs if they exist. I will do that from now on. If it hadn't been for this thread, I wouldn't have thought about it. smile

Hey guys,

I'm editor of The Discworld and have been reading this thread with some interest. Personally, I really like easter eggs in games, but with editing the site simply don't have the time to play each game enough to find them, so, I was thinking that if you guys know of any, if you get in touch with me, I'll post them on the site and that way we should get a rather comprehensive list. You can either leave them on this board which I'll check regularly or email them to my work address which is: ross@thediscworld.co.uk

Let me know what you think,

Ross

I've often wondered how anyone could find "Easter Eggs" in a game on their own. I'm all for someone (not me, of course!) making a comprehensive list of Easter Eggs in games.

I don't recall how it's activated but there are two in Zork - Nemesis. One is in a book at the beginning of the game. It's a blacked out picture untill activated and then it is one of the game developers (?) in his car. I've forgotten what the other one is. laugh

Hello Ross! I sure hope we can get this going, I LOVE little things like this! I wish I had more, but the only ones I know of are from The Longest Journey...
1. when you go to the bridges and see the big steel ball, click on it, April says "can you say death star?" If you click on it some more she will spout some Star Wars lines!
2. At the beginning, if you click on April, she will say she is in her undies and how "soooo inappropiate" it is! BUT, keep clicking on her during the game, she will say "I feel like someone is watching me!" and later, she comments on her outfits, then she starts saying how unnerving it is to be sooo aware of herself! This is all cuz YOU are clicking on her! lol
Wish I had more, but hey! If you can get a place for these I guess I will!! laugh Thanks for the thought, and I sure hope it works! wave

Ross,

That's a great idea. I'll have to go through my eggs lists and see what I have. I have gotten some great ones from your site, as well as some amazing WT's and such. Discworld is one of my frequent stops on my web jaunts for gaming info and such. smile

Do y'all remember how the Riven Easter eggs were released?

Cyan's Spyder posted a series of verses on his page. You had to click all five to open all the major Easter eggs available. but those were cool smile

ex::
Where creatures float and waters rise,
Only one of five will open.
The one that stands out is your prize,
Small, orange, and unbroken."

I thought that was the coolest way to do the Easter egg thing. laugh

(note: the easter eegg site gives some of the 'clicks' as seperate eggs. & some listed were just pics blended in rocks & surf for those who had eyes to see them)

by contrast the puzzles released to clue us to Easter eggs in realMyst were MUCH harder... you had to solve a puzzle just to get the clue THEN figure out how to use it. EEK!

web forums were made for egg games like these.....

smile

thanks for those sites! I never saw many of them before. laugh


Salar smile
