The Easter eggs are the from the Book Titles --- to comments made
by Micheal -- when certain objects are examined --- sometimes normally and sometimes when certain inventory objects are used.

Some where in the original --- some aren't. I only managed to find the book titles in the original. The rest I found playing the Sratches DC --- These are unofficial --- and just what i've been able to find.

The Books

Click to reveal..


These are located in the study --- Micheal's Room and the Chapel

'The Aleph' by Jorge Luis Borges
'Living In Doom' by Reginald P. Linux
"It was just some boring and annoying book entitled "Worlds of Myst". "
'How to Grow Successful' by John Holms
The "Necronomicon" by Abdul Alhazred, whoa!
'How NOT to Write Interactive Fiction' by H.A.S.
'The Grasshopper Lies Heavily' by Hawthorne Anderson
"At The Mountains Of Madness" by H.P. Lovecraft. The previous folks had taste, no question about that!
"How Not To Become DustMite Food: From Someone Who Knows" by Vlies Scrooge
Strange titles such as "De Vermis Mysteriis" gave me the shivers



There are two more which directly pertain to Robin --- and that is all I'm going to say.


In the original game as well as DC there is an interesting Dialogue tree from the

These are comments made by Micheal --- can you find them?

Click to reveal..
"King! What an overrated bloke..." --- In Micheal's Room
"That’s it! Mr. Blackwood had stolen the Holy Grail and this was all about a plot of the evil Templars to take it back. Meh, bloody clichéd games!" --- guess where this is...

" I don’t believe in miracles, but finding matches in here was quite a blessing..." -- if Micheal forgets to take the matches from his suitcase ... hmmm where do you think?

"The old-fashioned lamp made me think of exciting adventures I'd always dreamed of going on." --- Museum (Omage to Text Adventure Games?)


"Those shirts looked just like my own! Lazy developers! Bring some variety to the game for crying out loud..." ----- Where would one hide if one was a folded gray shirt?


"Hhmmm JB, my favourite. I wonder why it keeps reminding me of falling darkness..." ----- Dinning Room (This was in the original version)

Hello sailor! -- don't remember where this one is

Surely you didn't think I was going to say something smart? -- don't remember where this one is either

The idea was amusing... but then I would have screamed my guts out if I actually heard a heartbeat. - (This was in the original as well)

"My, those are some good looking fellows!" -- This one might be in Scrathches DC --- I don't remember where though.




I have a feeling that there are more --- just haven't found them yet --- but then that's parrt of the fun of it --- isn't it?


inferno


===================================================

These are from the demo:

"Locked again... probably because this was only a preview version of the game." --- Where could these be.. in the demo?
"Bloody developers... locked!"
"The preview is getting on my nerves!"

Here's a hint --- recall what Michael is by profession and act accordingly --

Ok.......Maybe I am Stupid or something....

But What am I Looking for? An Actual EGG?

In all my years of playing games I have never found anything remotely looking like an egg....<Geezzz>

Do I need to do certain things...What will I see..An egg...That looks like an Easter Egg?

No --- An Easter Egg--- in a computer program is mostly and "inside joke" or reference. It can be an audio cue or graphic or an alternate sequence. It is a "suprise" as it "steps outside of the game" and therefore is known as an Easter Egg.
The term is figurative and not literal.

Case in point --- In the dining room (this "easter egg" is also in the original)

Now, where was I? Oh yes, I remember --->

In the Dining Room during the Scratches Game --- if Michael examines the liquor cabinet carefully --- he will remark on a reference to Johnathan Boakes and Dark Fall. --- To get this click on the dark brown Liquor bottle.

When you are in the Crypt ---> Use the stethoscope on the corpse.
and you will read a funny one.

Go for it Inferno!!

I'm on my third try, still no luck. headscratch

I keep marching Michael to his typewriter, but he has more excuses for not working - then I do. rotfl

Maybe the third time will be the charm. I love this game.

Hi Inferno!

The third time I played, I definetly got different dialogue than the first two times. I'm not sure if it was just a normal feature of the game cause I played it in a different style than the first two times, or if I triggered something.

However, the very end point from going down the fireplace grate was exactly the same. I guess I'm a little confused cause I'm not sure how 'alternate' the alternate ending is supposed to be. lol

Hopefully more information will be forthcoming from Nucleosys. More importantly, how goes your quest for the alternate ending?

Hmm, care to be more specific? Not so much what it said, but where, so I can narrow my hunt?
