Random references/easter eggs in the MM games

Postby sajmon14 » Tue Apr 12, 2016 2:19 pm

As many of you have noticed, in many games there are references to developer names or other things. There are few of them in MM2.

Kouros Moghaddam - 3D Artist (vehicles)
Image

Steve Patton - Production Assistant
Image

Sam Buss - Physics Consultant
Image

David Becerra - Tester
Image

Kiki Wolfkill - Art Lead/Kiki McMillan - Content Lead
Image

This might be reference to Ron Suverkrop - 3D Artist (city). Dunno about the other ones.
Image

Marshall Ross - Art Director/Ryan Broley 3D Artist (city)
Image

Jay Panek - Producer (a hidden paintjob)
Image

Does anyone know if Mattin/Emon Shocks are reference to anything? Those companies seem to be fake. They also appear on a modified Hummer in another Angel Studios game called Test Drive: Off-Road - Wide Open (PS2/Xbox)

I haven't posted all of those shop names because some are random names, some are impossible to read and some have unclear meaning.

Also what do you think about those wild-cat paintjobs(Audi TT, Beetle Dune, 59 Caddie), could they mean something special or it was just a random idea? And do you know about other similar things?

Nice finds - never even noticed some of these names or knew that these were references to people who worked on this game :o

I just noticed the Kouros thing and those Test Drive decals and decided to search for other similar things and that's the result ;) I did once a similar thing on one of my maps :P

This is a cool discovery, great work. :) Was already obvious to me that those names were fake ones, but couldn't imagine that they have a relation with the names of the developers.
About the big cats paintjobs, there's only this relation between them, just to have a sort of feline family of cars. :P

The Bonfire plate on the Audi is Bonnie Bright's nickname, she did most of the textures in the game
