In the mountains, in the screen after the yeti's cave, LOOK VALLEY for a reference to the Half-Dome and Sierra: "That must be Daventry! But why is Half-Dome here?" you wonder. "But, of course," you think, "it's a Sierra game!".



Leisure Suit Larry I: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards (Egg id: 134)

The Sierra assembly line

Walking in the alley at the left of Lefty's bar will kill Larry. Luckily for him, the Sierra crew is working around the clock to create new Larries. There is also a spare Graham from King's Quest 1, along with the dragon, and the droid Roger Wilco purchases in Space Quest 1. Save before trying.

Quest for Glory 1 (EGA): So You Want To Be A Hero (a.k.a. Hero's Quest) (Egg id: 116)

Recycled moose

Look at the moose on the wall for a reference to Sierra's prop department. Moose heads have in fact been used several times in Sierra games: in Lefty's Bar in Leisure Suit Larry 1 (AGI), in Manannan's dining room in King's Quest 3, and possibly other games.

King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder (Egg id: 4)

Half-Dome

At the scene in the mountains where Cedric gets caught by the wolf, look at the middle mountain peak. The narrator will say the mountain looks vaguely familiar to Graham. It has the same shape as the Half-Dome in Yosemite National Park, Sierra's logo.



Police Quest IV: Open Season (Egg id: 130)

When you're not in the company of Sam and Julie, you can play the arcade game in the Short Stop Bar. It's titled "Stroids, another fine adventure from the Sierra family of games". At the end of the game you'll see the high scores, containing both names of Sierra game characters (Larry Laffer, Sony Bonds) and Sierra employees (Chris Carr, Dan Woolard, Daryl Gates and Lyle Lovett).



Phantasmagoria (Roberta Williams') (Egg id: 177)
