I found a little easteregg while I was playing around in forge.
I noticed a sign with the text ‘‘NEW BRANCH CONSTRUCTION’’:
(Sign located directly under the platform where the Bruteshot used to be.)
Thought that was an odd name for a company, so I went closer up to the sign and I noticed the little text in the lower right corner: ‘‘a division of NYGREN INDUSTRIES’’.
Then I knew I had found an easteregg, because I’m swedish.
‘‘Newbranch’’ is translated into ‘‘Nygren’’ in swedish, which is a common sername in Sweden.
When i looked up the name i found Deanna Nygren who worked as a 3D environment artist at Certain Affinity.
She had a major role in the recreation of Headlong.
Her family in the past must have been one of the many emigrators who went from Sweden to America during the 20th century, so I guess it were a little easteregg of her origins.
I forgot to add another funny thing where it says “division of NYGREN INDUSTRIES”.
“Division” in english is translated into “branch” in swedish.
Lots of branches in that sign : )
I recently found that the bruteshot platform isn’t the only location of the sign.
The signs are all over the construction building. I think I counted them up to 7 signs. Some are broken and some are half burried in the ground.
Found a reason for the picture on the sign.
The <mark>Seven</mark>-branched sword
Coincidence? I think not.
I found it quite amusing and I just wanted to share this.
