2019-04-21 - Festival Of Eggs Begins!

Recommended Posts

>_< Sadly for the first year since I first joined DC....I missed the event completely this year. Due to the fact we were moving and I completely forgot in the hassle of shuffling boxes from one apartment to the other. Drat! I'll just stand over here with the other folks who forgot or were unable to collect them all. Saaaaad. 

 

But congrats to those who got all 62!! ^_^

I think it's funny that we *still* have this argument of 'TJ needs to cater to the users', this site has been around for over a decade and is still going strong. Obviously the site is working, obviously users are still here. I haven't seen a single holiday event in *years* that didn't have some reason for drama over what should and shouldn't be changed. Every single Halloween/V-day/Christmas mini-game has some sort of drama like that. 

 

I'm honestly not sure what people think should've been done differently, besides maybe shorter drop-rates. The official news posts (ie the first post in this thread) clearly states 3 days. If you miscalculated, that's on you. If you didn't realize it's Easter for most of the world, that's on you. If you had other obligations that kept you from collecting all the eggs, that's life. Seriously, this is a free game that we all *choose* to play, it's supposed to be a fun little hobby. I would totally support shorter drop times, and I really wouldn't mind the event being extended, but I really don't get this mentality of 'things HAVE to change because I couldn't get all I wanted out of a free game!'. (Also, the claim that the 'majority' of users didn't get all the eggs is complete assumption, just because some vocal posters here didn't get all of them that shows nothing about actual stats among *all* users...)

 

Regardless, I love all the beautiful eggs this year and I really hope we have open submissions again next year! (And maybe for Halloween Trick or Treat too??)

I think that a week to finish the event would be nice. The Halloween event is a week long, so there's precedent for it. I finished the event by setting a timer to go off every 15 minutes, basically all day long for both Monday and Tuesday. I could do that because I work from home. 62 eggs over 3 days is 20 per day, which means you have to be checking in very regularly. I think that's an unforgiving schedule. It's fine if the event is intended to be difficult, but I don't think that's the goal here.

 

Let's not get bogged down in who deserves what or who is entitled to what. Of course it's a free game and TJ can do whatever he wants, that's not up for dispute. But that doesn't mean we can't say "XYZ would be nice".

Rats, didn't even end up catching my own egg. That's a bit disappointing xD Ah well, I should have paid more attention; got to 51 before time ran out.

Which one was your own egg?

 

Also, all the egg credits/references I could find on the thread:

Omg thank you! I don't know if there is more than one MTG egg, but if its the one I made you can definitely use it if you want.

 

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.

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?

14al1f4.gif

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.

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.

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 -

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!!

Nope

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 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?)

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 :)

4dqn7c.png

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!

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

 

1y2fr6u.png

 

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!

 

AbAxnM2.png

 

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:

 

QGdYsVy.png

 

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!:)

No special reference, I just like hot air balloons and always think of spring when I see them, since in my area, spring is when you start seeing the balloons all over the place. I just wanted to make something cute and simple. :)

The egg is supposed to depict a horrorterror from Homestuck.

 

 

Anyone else make eggs with (or without) references this year?

 

(On a different note, I would like shorter drop times. Like on the same level as Trick-or-treats. I have an easier time with those.)

This is the first time in... probably ever I've managed to get all the eggs. I got 23 last year, 10 the year before, then one in both 2015 and 2016 B: I've had the same amount of free time across the years, but managed to get all the eggs this year without lurking for the whole time but that's just me.

Wouldn't be a DC event without complaining, I guess.

 

Thank you to all the spriters, and to TJ for hosting the event! There were a lot of eggs I loved, my favorites were either the Lugia or the spinning think egg. The one with the purple eastern dragon wrapped around it is also in my top three.
