What is an Easter Egg?

For those of you not familiar with the term “easter egg” in a software context, wikipedia.org gives the following definition: “Easter eggs are messages, graphics, sound effects, or an unusual change in program behavior, that mainly occur in a software program in response to some undocumented set of commands, mouse clicks, keystrokes or other stimuli intended as a joke or to display program credits.”</p>

The Zork Easter Egg

Below are two screenshots from the Zork Easter Egg. I leave it as an exercise to the reader to understand what it actually is used for (hint: there is a related .html file for the portal component)

    Hey Dagfinn:

    That looks awesome! I don’t know if you ever played Interactive Fiction games…But Zork is one the father of all IF games along with Colossal Cave Adventure…I don’t know if you can actually play it on the EP…That’s really a hard game to play…It took me years and still can’t finish it -:( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zork

    Greetings,

    Blag.

  2. …but merely a demo about the PCD GL if I’m correct.
    Nevertheless, it’s still fun!
