Although it may seem like a glamorous line of work, life isnt always easy for video game developers. It's a job that young kids dream of, injecting yourself into the middle of a pretty cool industry and getting paid to, essentially, play games all day. But it can also be lonely and isolated, toiling for hours in front of a screen to lend their under-appreciated expertise to games that can grow enormously popular but leave them largely anonymous.
No wonder, then, that many game developers seek recognition. And what better outlet to attempt to earn that acknowledgment than by planting their own, unique signature messaging in the games, themselves. For the game developer, these hidden messages serve to leave a piece of themselves in the game, offer some personality and provide a special little bond with the gamer who is hardcore enough to uncover them. For the gamer, there is a level of satisfaction in going where few have ever gone before and unearthing a well-concealed secret within a game explored by so many.
Easter eggs, as the hidden messages in video games are often known, can be a fun way to motivate players to continue exploring a game they've completed, or can serve as a platform for a developer to drop a subtle inside joke or offer an under-the-radar nod. They can be small and irreverent in nature, boasting little in the way of meaning but offering a quick shot of chuckle-worthy amusement. In other cases, they let the gamer in on a substantial, meaningful and coveted component of the game play experience, such as a mind-bending plot twist. Whatever the nugget of information may be, it can often be made extremely hard to find.
So why do these hidden messages exist? Well, why not? Neither game developers nor game players need to take these games too seriously. After all, it’s not like those within this digitalized, console-based world are actually getting shot down and blown up. But just because these games aren’t to be taken too seriously isn’t to say that developers haven’t created nuanced, multi-layered games. Some hidden messages provide call backs to previous iterations of a gaming franchise or references to other games and/or levels within that same game. World of Warcraft, for example, featured a hidden level with a haunted castle that also served as a callback to its video game predecessor, a series simply known as Warcraft.
These 10 hidden messages in popular, widely known video game series, some of which reach deeper than simply the world of gaming, carry a wide assortment of weight and significance. Some double as political statements, some can raise the hairs on the back of a gamer’s neck, some venture into controversial territory and some are just plain silly. Here is an account of some major video games written and developed by some truly warped and creative minds, with the hidden nuggets to prove it.
