Yeah, the BASS easter egg was excellent! One of the best I've seen. I wish more adventure games had easter eggs like that.

I like the BASS one too.

Also killing the hampster in Maniac Mansion, but that might not count.

Think Al Lowe was the master of Easter Egg. Of course everyone knew what the objective was when they started looking for them.

The copy of Maniac Mansion that you can play on the computer in Weird Ed's room in Day of the Tentacle has got to be the best. Where else can you find an entire game hidden inside another?

GK3 had lots of great Easter eggs, and a few of those in Riven were really clever. Those in LSL were also fun (especially the one with Suzi Cheatem in LSL3 -- that one was unexpected!).

And, while it would belong to the underground section, I think my all-time favourite has to be the madness of King Graham from KQ2VGA.

The spaceship easter egg in King's Quest 4 AGI. You could actually warp to this secret room on a spaceship that had various ships flying past outside. Inside, there were programmers and designers from the Sierra team that you could look at and talk to. A great easter egg, although it was unfortunately not included in the more popular SCI version.

Blowing up Manny Calavera was a lot of fun.

I think it was 'blam', and Manny actually said "ouch!", if I remember correctly. I really liked the easter eggs in Larry 7, they were very well done.

I think I need an explanation to what an easter egg is. Some kind of surprise that turns up?
How do you know what games have easter eggs?
Tell me all about it!

What alternative Puzzle solution?


2 that should be mentioned is the Drowning sequence in the original MI and being able to revisit that scene in CMI

Exactly. Usually, you have to do something rather non-sensical (such as pulling a lever ten times, finding a hidden hotspot, etc.) and you get a funny, or unexpected, reward. For instance, in TLJ,
Spoiler:
if you use the leaf (from the plant next to April's room) on Abnaxus's lawn, you unlock the Book of secrets, with artwork and out-takes (which also gets unlocked when you finish the game anyway, so maybe that's not a great example -- but you get the idea).


I'm not sure how people learn about Easter eggs; I think developers often drop hints around the time of the game's release (for instance, there was an elaborate series of riddles to solve to find the Easter eggs in Riven).

The X-Files is near and dear to my heart, so when the "It's Scully!" choice came in in the police station in TLJ, I was very, very happy.

When you find the can of gas in Zak McKracken, "Itīs for another game".
A clever reference to the chainsaw in Maniac Mansion.

Please tell me about the Beneath a Steel Sky easter egg.
Iīve never played Broken Sword 2, so iīm a bit curious about the egg.

Thanks for the link Cathy. I'm playing G.F right now and I've just learned about Easter eggs.
