I was bored (for 5 minutes) near
the end of developing Discworld II.
Eric Idle had recorded a parody of
the famous line by John Cleese "I want to be the first person at a
British Memorial service to say F%#k!".
I had to put it somewhere in the
game it would never be found, as that would be "bad"...
I made it virtually impossible to find by accident...
There is no visual or other feedback to indicate where the triggers
happened.. what always happens... fate steps in...
The way I was told, a customer's
copy of Discworld I had crashed while they were playing it and it
started playing every single piece of sound and speech in the game...
one after the other... until it played "I want to be the first person
in a game to say f%#k" line.
That was reported back to the
publisher... who were not happy.... which was reported back to my
boss... who was officially not happy (but amused too).
How to trigger the Easter egg:
Near the end of the game, there is
a scene where the entire cast turn out to watch Rincewind battle the
Amongst the crowd are a young pickpocket
(street starfish/urchin) you met at the start of the
game and an Amazon maiden.
(The Amazon is wearing a metal bikini top if that helps your object
In sequence (like a combination lock), you must click on the following
- The pickpocket's left eye
- The Amazon maiden's left nipple
- The pickpocket's right eye
- The Amazon maiden's right nipple
Rincewind should then start his infamous soliloquy!
