I have known about easter eggs on DVDs and video games for some time
now, but the complicated path to accessing this particular one (and
others, I assume) makes me wonder how people discover these bonus
features. Trial and error seems highly unlikely in this case. Do the
makers of the DVD (or game) release this information formally
somewhere? And why make access so complex? What's the point?
