Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist (Macintosh/English) Tried in: ScummVM 1.7.0 ScummVM 1.9.0git-dirty (Feb 29 2016 00:58:11) (commit 3e5adc33a84b0a4f0af6ab289782bc6ec7319c9c) Mac OS X 10.10.5
So, I recently discovered a rare easter egg that was exclusive to the Mac version of Freddy Pharkas. By using the “Talk” icon in the same spot on the Mine that generates the “Mac programmers deep within the Old Abandoned Mine toil at their shunned lore.” message (by using the "Look" icon), a sequence will begin that ends with a hand raising a Macintosh out of the swamp.
I uploaded a video of the whole easter egg (while being played in SheepShaver) on YouTube.
But, if you were to try it in ScummVM (the versions I listed above), when the sound "Find the golden ball" plays, that just continues to loop and the easter egg doesn't continue as normal. There's no output in Terminal or any messages in the ScummVM debugger. I've attached a recording of the ScummVM version & a save file at the swamp.
