Easter Egg #7 – Secret Monologue by Cave Johnson

Cave Johnson will give a hidden monologue that you can hear if you stay in the first test chamber (after you discover the White Gel) for about ten minutes.

Easter Egg #8 – Sunthesizers and Sunbridges

This Easter Egg is simple but oh-so-pleasurable. You can hear some harmonies songs of the Sun by simply squatting under a Sunbridge and keeping an ear out!

Easter Egg #9 – Chapter 5 Wall Art

Directly after the intro of Chapter 6: The Fall, head towards the nearest wall and create a portal. Follow the wall to your left until you notice a collage of various shapes in the righthand corner. Now shoot an entry portal to exit on the other side of the first fence. Here you will notice some shapes where the light and shadow are on the wall corner.

Ending/Credits Song “Want You Gone” by Jonathan Coulton

Well here we are again, It’s always such a pleasure, Remember when you tried to kill me twice? Oh, how we laughed and laughed, Except I wasn’t laughing, Under the circumstances I’ve been shockingly nice.

You want your freedom take it, That’s what I’m counting on, I used to want you dead but, Now I only want you gone.

She was a lot like you, (Maybe not quite as heavy), Now little Caroline is in here too. One day they woke me up, So I could live forever, It’s such a shame the same will never happen to you.

You’ve got your short, sad life left, That’s what I’m counting on, I’ll let you get right to it, Now I only want you gone.

Goodbye, my only friend, Oh, did you think I meant you? That would be funny if it weren’t so sad, Well you have been replaced, I don’t need anyone now, When I delete you maybe I’ll stop feeling so bad.

Go make some new disaster, That’s what I’m counting on, You’re someone else’s problem, Now I only want you gone, Now I only want you gone, Now I only want you gone.

Easter Egg #11 – Chell’s Science Projects

Now THIS one has some major implications. Without giving anything away, head to the “Bring your daughter to work day” room with all the Science Fair Potato projects. Look very closely at all of them, one of them you’ll notice the name “Alyx”, a reference to the protagonist of Half-Life 2! But the other is even more major. Find the large overgrowth of a potato project and look very closely. You’ll notice a name… Chell!
