What We Can Learn From Games – Easter Eggs!

It’s close enough(ish) to Easter for me to release this – so let’s discuss Easter Eggs in E-Learning and games in a wider sense.

What is an Easter Egg?

An Easter egg is an intentional inside joke, hidden message, or feature in a work such as a computer program, video game, movie, book, or crossword. According to game designer Warren Robinett, the term was coined at Atari by personnel who were alerted to the presence of a secret message which had been hidden by Robinett in his already widely distributed game, Adventure. The name has been said to evoke the idea of a traditional Easter egg hunt.

Easter Eggs in this post refer to hidden surprises and extras within games, they are usually pop culture references but in truth they can be anything, which is the beauty of them. They are aimed at people who like to explore (Free Spirits) as they reward people for just looking around and digging a little deeper than some others.
