Easy game, but amusing. Russian mystery game, yay.
So maybe they're coming back soon? Not likely, but we'll see.

I think my favorite part of the whole game is the way the guy's arm just extends to give him the badge. It's hilarious.

Also, I doubt they'd be coming back without taking away the notice.

Their first update after a "drought" was a Thy Dungeonman, and...then they stopped again until late June, so :P

Ha ha, fun game, fun game. Videlectrix really knows the meaning of a "simple pleasure". Where's An Egg? is funny, great fun, Russian, violent, and random! (Now THAT'S a promising slew of words! :mrgreen:) My favorite parts are the music, the police chief's extending arm, and of course, the shooting. Senseless violence has never been so fun.

Good prize.

Oh, and my record is 977 seconds remaining. I haven't had the luck of finding the egg at the first person I visit yet. :p

My record's 994 when playing it properly now. The cosmonaut doing the space walk at the end is a nice touch.

That's as good as you can get :p Counter displays 999 properly at the victory screen though, but there's no cool ending for getting perfect.

Anyone else notice that when you're in front of the butcher, the music changes? Pretty sure it doesn't happen for any other suspect, place, or item. Someone want to add that to Trivia or something?

EDIT: It also does that when someone mentions the butcher after being questioned.

EDIT: Just realized every character has their own theme song, the butcher is just the loudest.

I liked this game alot. I think the "reasoning" of the game is based more on luck. you should try detective grimoire. it's a fun game I found a while ago.

Heh, this is an amusing exercise in "how the crap do you play this game?". Much like Mao.

And since no one else has made the obvious joke, I will: "In Soviet Russia, egg finds YOU!"

I'm not sure what my record is, but I got it first try. I wasn't sure what I was doing, so it was dumb luck. =P

Yeah I just tried that. New record is 999. Not that it's really a legitimate score, since I just kept resetting until I got him =P

I dunno if it's possible to get better than that though

Is it me, or did "The Joe" steal my avatar?

Anyways, yeah, the game's cool, but I can't help but ask all the Ws: who exactly made it? Why did they make it? When did they make it? Perhaps that's the genius behind TBC; they can make you laugh in confusion.

The game is way too simple, they should have more people and more complexity to make it a little more easier than shooting whoever I want.

Game is addicting though...

Then play it the way it was meant to be played.

It's not really. Getting a good time is based on luck, but it's possible and not that hard to find an egg with the first shot every time.

Actually that might be what happened to me. When I shot him, it said 000 at the bottom of the screen, but showed up as 999.

Better?

This game was rather simple, although it did entertain me a bit.
7/10

They need to change it to only 1 bullet, since it's too easy to win using only 1. Then they need a few more places, a few more people, a few more items. And people should tell the truth about some things, but lie about other things.

You hear that, TBC? I don't usually complain about your work, so you better fix this!
If you want... *scared of powerful people*
Very fun game overall, but 3 bullets is WAY too easy. I think 1 would be better. You'd have to interrogate a bit more, because you don't want to make any mistakes.

I don't really think the game is meant to be hard though. I seriously think the point was to figure out how the heck to play the game, and then once you know how it was supposed to be pretty easy.

Wait, wouldn't 000 be as bad as you can get? Yeah, I know it starts there, but I wonder if it would display 000 again if you waited out all 999 seconds.

I keep beating it. My secret? Shoot everybody! Usually by the second or third dead body, one of them has the egg. (but you need to start at the top and work your way down ) :p

I did some investigating... It turns out that the 'game-winning' isn't the glitch, it's the timer. no matter what, the timer always skips a second from '000' (my guess being it's meant to be 1000) to 998. also, the game stops the timer if you're about to shoot the egg-holder. Now... TBC, PLEZ FIX THA GLITCH. Or something. :cheatgrin:
