Devs share personal touches they've hidden in games

Devs share personal touches they've hidden in games

May 3, 2018 | By Alex Wawro




Last week game dev Steve Thornton took to Twitter to ask: fellow devs, have you ever slipped something into a game you're working on that's just for you?

It's a fun question, if not a totally novel one (Thornton himself seems to have been inspired by a similar question posed by game dev Katie Chironis last year) and in the week since there have been a ton of great answers which illuminate how deeply developers leave their mark on the games they make.

If this is the kind of stuff you enjoy then the full thread of replies is well worth reading, as it touches on everything from hidden Scarlet Pimpernels to a childhood lullably buried in the audio tracks of Spec Ops: The Line.

Helpfully, this morning Thornton also condensed the lion's share of the responses he received into a Twitter Moment which is a bit more comfortable to read. We've gone ahead and take the liberty of reprinting it below.
