as you might be aware of I've recently added an 'Easter Egg' mode: the idea is that there are Easter eggs hidden on the tracks, and players have to find them. That would be a nice child-friendly mode (when played without a time limit), and could even be an exciting challenge (on hard you first would have to find all eggs, then identify the fastest way to actually reach all of them in time).
At this stage I am looking for:
- An icon to be used in the mode selection GUI (atm I am using the battle mode icon)
- A model for the Easter egg. Atm I am actually using the bunny from Northern Resort, which at least is missing some colors (like black nose). I am not sure if bunnies is actually the way to go (though my daughter loves it ). Perhaps a colorful Easter egg might be better? Though someone suggested a story about a mother bunny looking for her baby bunnies ...
Also I'd love to get more tracks with Easter eggs. It's actually amazing how many nicely hidden Easter egg locations you can find on even a small track like math class - there must be a huge potential in some of the larger tracks (not to mention overworld - so I am not sure at this stage if it would work, but if someone adds easter eggs there I'll make sure to get it to work). Easter eggs are defined just like items, just select the corresponding level (since Easter egg locations should be different on easy, medium and hard). On easy you should easily see them (think of kids mode). Medium needs some looking around. On hard it should involve looking at more remote spots, and might even involve difficult driving (perhaps jumping with nitro to an otherwise inaccessible location and needing to press rescue to come back).
