Yknow what I really like? Video game Easter eggs. I’m counting ARGs, too, because even the smallest detail gives me little goosebumps. Having worked on games and built environments before, I can tell you this: everything is deliberate. EVERYTHING.

That weird coincidence? It isn’t. Strange correlation to a mystery? It is intended. Every line of dialogue, every asset placed, every note of music — EVERYTHING. I find it very, very interesting

@cinnabyn One of my favourite things when writing is to spend an excessive amount of effort on a name or a specific detail of the text, & I'd guess 100% of the time the reader has no idea it's a tiny easter egg.

I'll often forget I even did it, until I re-read something a few years later and give myself a chuckle :D
