2019-04-21 - Festival Of Eggs Begins!

Recommended Posts

My sister juuuuuuust got the last one (which was of course one she really wanted). That was beyond too close.

I agree that other years there was less time between egg drops. The game is still fun, but more stressful.  I think if the time between drops is more, the game should be extended a bit more.  Maybe by one day.  This would still require time and dedication, but would be less stressful.

Well, it's done and I got a total of 47 Eggs in my basket this year...  


Thank you TJ and Spriters...  It was all on me for not getting all my Eggs this time.  I got a late start  and ran out f time...

Found way more than I had time for last year, but still not all.   Maybe next year.   Thanks artists and TJ!

(not so?) Unreasonable demand; next year we get to play for a week like other holidays, with around 60 eggs, people get to submit their sprites, but also get to collect any previous years eggs to fill up our baskets after collecting the current years ;) and a set 10 min spawn

Thanks, TJ and spriters.  Even though I didn't get all the eggs, it was a lot of fun catching the ones I did catch.  😃

Maaan!  I had all but TWO EGGS!  You would think they would give us a predictable drop range and a bit MORE time for a 62-piece hunt.  Hey, @TC, I would LOVE it if you guys add the time range of a scavenger hunt drop from now on; I keep thinking it's every 15 minutes, but apparently it's anywhere from 5-15 minutes.  I would have all of these eggs if O knew!!

All on me, as I said, but I had:

A wedding and reception until late on Saturday...

Easter dinner and late night talk with a friend on Sunday...

A Veteran friend's Eye Doctor's appt and dinner on Monday...

And MY Doctor's appt this afternoon...


And NOW, the rest of my week is open until Friday...  sigh.  lol


Still it was fun, thank you...

54/62 eggs. I spent most of tonight trying to catch up on all of them because working full time doesn't lend a lot of spare hours to continuously refreshing in the cave. If the drop rate had been normal I could've managed it tonight in one long slog, but as it is, I missed some really good eggs and got stuck with some staggeringly ugly ones.


Pleased I got the Stargate egg really early, though! That's one of my favorite shows. So at least there's that.

I would agree... still so very sad I couldn't get them all 6 short this year that has NEVER happened to me before... but I work 3 12.5 hour shifts every weekend... and being on a phone or computer is a NO NO at work... I'm a Medical Laboratory Technician and it's just been insanely busy of late at work... so I was exhausted after 3 long shifts on my feet most the time and without much time at all to even eat a meal... mostly just grab two bites of something here and there between patients... so yeah... I was so exhausted I slept most of Monday.  But I understand there has to be a cut off... but the time between this year really killed me.

Ending with 3 missing this year. :( Earlier I was sure I could finish in time, but then every single egg took 15 minutes to spawn... This is the only collection I have that's incomplete, and as I see I'm far from being the only one, I'm hoping we'll get an extension.


On a more positive note, seeing all these new spriters make eggs this year was super cool, and I hope it happens again next year! (I had thought of participating myself, but alas, I had no ideas.) So, thanks spriters for all the excellent eggs, and to TJ for running the event! :lol:

I found that for the most part, If I started looking 10 minutes after the last drop, they usually dropped by 12 or 13 minutes.

Really bummed that the last day of the event was the only time I had a little more extra time to get these eggs. With working so much and having a son, it was hard to really get the chance to sit down and devote time to collect all the eggs. It's not the first year I missed out on all of them. 😢 Like a lot of others, really wish we could get one more day.

I'm surprised that at this point, the eggs are not dropping faster towards the end of the event. If eggs dropped at 5 minute intervals in the last few hours, it would help a lot of people catch up.

For now I found only one with the mana symbols changing :) If it's yours thank you for making it!

Yep, that's mine! Glad you like it.

Yay, finally got my own egg: 13sjzy7.png     Glad so many people liked it~


As you can probably guess, I am a big fan of Studio Ghibli movies.

So when I got the chance to submit an entry for the FoE, I decided to make something I've always wanted to see in my basket (really, I had this idea for years).

I think the sprite turned out okay considering I have never attempted pixel art before.


Thank you for the idea ^_~



Now back to hunting!

So this is my egg! 

It's based off of a meme on the flight rising tumblr, which I'm very active on. It's basically a joke on the light egg's nickname in the community, which is, you guessed it, legg.


On 4/22/2019 at 12:46 PM, Moonlightelf said:

I hope everyone has had good Easter ^^


This be my egg. The inspiration behind it were glass Faberge eggs. Originally the egg was going to be red with green dragon, but half-way I figured that was bit too common color combo. So instead I swapped the egg's color to be purple, which is my favorite color. I also wanted rose (my favorite flower) on the egg, which proved to be the most difficult part since it is rather small. And of course... dragon. Everything must have dragons. I planned to have another color for the mane, but then figured purple would tie the entire thing together perfectly. And if you look at the egg close enough, you can see part of the dragon behind the egg.

Is this egg a Peggle reference?


It is actually a reference to the Chozo Artifact from Metroid Prime. I had a version that is a bit more complex in shape and closer to the actual artifact. But I have had eggs rejected in the past for going too far out of the egg shape, so that was the version that I chose to send forward.

Since others are doing it, let me do it too :) 




This is my egg. (As it was pointed out before, haha.) Transistor is one of my favorite videogames of all time, so I wanted to do something for it when I saw there was nothing already done for the other years. I was actually torn between doing Red or the Transistor, so I just made both and threw them in a little loop! The little fade from Red to the Transistor is based on the Limiters menu =D


My favorites after seeing everything are the Sexy Legg, Super Smash Bros, Think Emoji, Salmonid and Totoro eggs, but I think all of them are neat in their own little ways ❤️

May I introduce my egg k0otzd.png I finally just got him.


This is Dirge, he is one of the three Generation One Transformers Decepticon Seekers called the "cone heads". He follows the already existing Seeker set that includes, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker and Sunstorm. Conehead Seekers are known to also have "butt wings" or wing positions that start at the waist and go down. Butt wings for the win

Well, here we go t0umru.png this is my egg!

The little alien is Giegue, the main antagonist in the 1989 NES game Mother, localized to the west as EarthBound Beginnings. You might have heard of its sequel, EarthBound, released in 1995 for the SNES. The egg is supposed to be an earth, like the Mother series logo. I was going to make it look exactly like the logo, but I didn't want to run into plagiarism issues.

Giygas_In-Battle_Mother.png This is Giegue as he appears in Mother

Mother_boxart.png  And this is the Mother logo.


I chose to do this egg because Mother/EarthBound is a very beloved and important series to me, and due to 2/3 of it only releasing in Japanese for a long time, is very unheard of. If you like JRPGs I implore you to give the series a go.

Before I forget, here is my egg!



It's based on the Golden Eggs from Splatoon 2's Salmon Run mode - the little fishbone shaped creature inside is a baby Salmonid from the game!

Here's a picture of what they look like in-game -

Which in turn are based on real-life salmon fish roe -

Making it was lots of fun! Originally I was going to have it be static but decided to animate the li'l fella so that it's more clear that there's a creature inside the egg and not just a fishbone marking on the shell.

It's not meant to be a reference to anything, just to be a cool circuit thing 😊References are fun though; maybe next year if I get to participate I'll make a reference to one of my favorite games...

I believe that the egg with the "sexy posed legs" is a nod to L'eggs pantyhose. When I was younger, the pantyhose came in a plastic egg, like current Easter eggs, only white with a possible cardboard bottom. Usually the advertisements showed the egg and a set of woman's legs in high heels as part of the ad. I only remembered them from the ads and working retail.


Other then that, this has been fun to see and collect. Thank you spriters!!


Sexy legg was just a fevered dream I had that demanded to be made

I'm responsible for what Lagie mistook as an ad. I wasn't expecting that part, to be honest. I hope it wasn't too pastel-y for people to read (especially the first G)?


My inspiration stretched no farther than the Festival of Eggs itself. It's a celebration of eggs, so these eggs are celebrating!

I suppose I'll jump on the bandwagon. This here is my egg:




I am a huge nerd when it comes to all things science--after all, that is what I am currently in university for. So why not celebrate this love of scientific progress by designing an egg after our favorite outdated atomic model? Perhaps I'll make the Schrödinger model next year, once I've figured out how to place pixels without being certain as to where they are at any given time.

@Daiyachiri I love the feesh egg! One of the first eggs I caught and it's still my favorite!

And @yellow_gellow thanks for explaining! :D That little one-eyed fish skeleton egg intrigued me too! Like I knew it had to be a reference, but I had no idea where from


@Cowfish249 Aha. Ahahahahaha! It is a wonderful egg and one of the references I actually get, but it will forever look to me like Shrek in a bikini! :P ISOSORRYPLEASENOHATE

I don't have them all yet. 😅 (gotta catch 'em all, right?)

I want to drop the meaning behind my egg though!



It's not a pop culture reference, but it has sentimental value because it's an tribute/present to my significant other. (He's from Hawaii. And shades cuz they're cool. 😎)

Plus, I've always wanted to contribute to this site!! This is my 10th year and I like to dabble in pixel art.

Okay then, so I suppose I'll tell something about my egg too :)


For those who aren't able to tell, this egg was based on the Smurfette - the Smurfs play a huge role in my life (I grew up with them and am a big fan to name one thing, and no prior FoE had an egg that references the Smurfs), so I ended up going with that as the thing I was to reference. I had other ideas and even almost settled for doing Gargamel instead (who is the Smurfette's creator or "dad" in a way, and my second top favorite character), but in the end Smurfette won and she became the egg motive.

That being said, for next year I've already got a couple new ideas in mind; not revealing what these are of course so that I don't spoil anything, but hopefully at least one of them will come through in a future FoE haha. The Smurfette egg is almost the first time I've sprited anything since forever, and I'm happy with how it turned out and that people got to collect it. Looking forward to future FoE public submissions if there are any!


21 hours ago, UserOfShadows said:

Finally got all the eggs, including mine, so here it is!




There's no reference for this, I was just trying to make a really shiny, dark colored egg. However, the tail is a design from my mind- Kinda gory, read at your own risk!

  Hide contents

The spines on the end are made to be closed and opened at will. The point of this is for the dragon to pierce its prey and then open the spines inside the creature before ripping the tail out, wreaking absolute havoc on the inside in an attempt to shock it into submission. This dragon is a rather messy hunter!

This is my egg!




It's a reference to the show Popee the Performer, and it's supposed to look like the main character Popee.

I started making the egg just for fun about a year ago already, thinking that it'd be cool to take part in spriting an egg for the Festival of Eggs. Then a year later the egg actually made it to the event. :D It looked different in the beginning though, with bigger ears.


  Hide contents

The first version, still unfinished and with the ears straightened:




I had to fold the ears in order to make it fit into the size limit, and I'm glad I did. The final result is conveniently within the required measurements, and the folded ears look more true to how the character's ears actually look like.

Since we're uploading eggs, well, here's mine! I made it as a tribute to Kiyohime from FGO, since she's positively my favorite gorl to blast things with.

This is my eggo, its based on the Blue Mage job stone from Final Fantasy 14. Its actually not the first one I was working on, but I was fighting the original as its an animated one. Maybe I'll get the other figured out and touched up in time to submit it next year. Since I couldn't do the one I wanted, I figured I'd keep up my silly tradition of job stones.  :nyan:

Finally grabbed my work:P as one of the last eggs to collect.

I'm responsible for 85n2oh.png
It's a simple reference to Gothic, an old(2001) cRPG game of German origin, very popular in Europe, considered a classic of the genre in Poland (where I live), and probably the first game with a successful living, responsive, open world. A game from the times before RPGs got all destinations marked on the map - you had to find everything on your own, with the help of the clues from NPCs etc. Gothic and Gothic 2 are the games of my teen times^^
The egg shows the symbol of The Sleeper, on of the versions is visible here: gothic-complete-edition-w-iext46889794.j Since this symbol is shaped after the head of that creature and kind of looks like a mask to me, I decided my egg to simply wear the Sleeper symbol as a mask. The orange colour simply refers to the cover of the first Gothic game.

This game even inspired the makers of The Witcher games, the pride of the Polish game industry:)

Both my Witcher egg 2jor0h.png and this Gothic one were made for FoE 2017 but I only had a slot for one, and I didn't have a chance to submit in 2018. I picked the Witcher one first, because I knew more of you guys will recognize the Witcher reference. These two eggs have finally met in the game this year!:)

The egg is supposed to depict a horrorterror from Homestuck.


Thank you all for the lovely eggs. 


Too bad I didn't get them all. Oh well.


Who did the eggs in the banner? I thought some of them might be submissions that didn't make it into the actual event, but made it somewhat. Just a theory though.


@Fuzzbucket: Ask and you shall receive. lol


This list isn't complete though.

Thought it was till the 24th, might just give up on FoE personally. I love collecting them but having one entire year missing and another incomplete is a bit discouraging. My own fault either way but just doesn't give me the drive to complete it anymore.

Glad to have been able to grab all the eggs this year; as I didn't have anything else to so, I could refresh often. Annoying enough, a lot of the times no egg would appear, just for it to spawn once I visit a different page literally a second later - this happened a lot... Sadly enough, my sister was so busy with her kids and family stuff that she only grabbed three eggs. :(


Anyway, I didn't get like 95% of the references, but there were some very nice ones. My favorites are the Wolf Link egg, and this one, if it is indeed a Chozo artifact (I really hope it is, as Metroid Prime is one of my all-time-favorite games.) lol if it's not and I'm just being desperate.
