The AVS easter egg that never was 04 Dec, 2008, 22:48 / 10 comments

Bill Tiller has revealed to The Pumpkin Post that he was originally planning to include an easter egg in A Vampyre Story which was cut due to time constraints - an 8-bit version of the game, complete with v1 SCUMM interface! A visibly emotional ATMachine has declined to comment.

Incidentally, you may want to peruse The Pumpkin Post's news updates from the past few weeks for some other fine Autumn Moon related news we neglected to point out to you as we were too busy gawking in disgust at the shenanigans going on over at The SCUMM Bar - which has, by the way, been updated in response to some donations that were as misguided as they were generous.

    I just want to say, everybody who donated to the SCUMM Bar needs a slap.

    Hah. You can tell that's obviously taken from one of the later releases of Maniac Mansion - the "New Kid Vamp" verb is below the Unlock verb instead of above it, as it was in the original C64 release.

    That would make a great Easter Egg! Maybe it could be included in AVS2.
