No Adventure Game would be complete without having the proverbial 'Easter Eggs'. These are extra little amusing titbits that programmers place in their creations. They're always well hidden and usually require knowledge of arcane and undocumented commands. By clicking a particular spot, editing a certain file or doing something unusual you're rewarded with anything from a simple graphic to a full-blown movie.
 
To the best of my knowledge there are only two genuine Easter Eggs in Broken Sword III. If there are any others you know about, please let me know!
 

 
 
 

EASTER EGG ONE
SEEING THE SIGHTS OF PARIS

 
Were you disappointed in not seeing some of the more famous sights of Paris such as the Eiffel Tower or River Seine? Well, they're there - all you have to do is find them.
 
When Nico finds the guy with the skateboard (in the streets outside Vernon's apartment), try to give him the lipstick. You don't get any reaction, but this triggers two exits to the sights of Paris. You get there by either going right at the road before the traffic warden or by crossing the road just beyond her.
 
You'll also have some four-legged company while sightseeing!
 

 
 
 

EASTER EGG TWO
NICO'S WOMANLY WILES

 
When George and Nico arrive outside the castle in Prague, Nico has an opportunity to display her wiles.
 
When George asks Nico to press the button on the front door and distract the guard, he must hide behind the pillar on the left. Instead of trying to sneak in while Nico talks to the guard, remain standing still. Let Nico call and distract the guard four times to see just how wily she can be!
