Hmm, i'm guessing the Hat worn by someone or other in just about any game in the world is a cameo of the hat worn in just about any other game in the world.

Yeah, that seagull is definately gonna be in the credits. All of you who think this is silly, well yes, but it IS a seagull, and this being LucasArts its almost certainly the seagull.

Sure it is. Who has ever heard of a seagull on a beach after all?!

You know, I remember in one of the Star Wars games (can't remember which one) there was an X-Wing which look remarkably like the one in another Star Wars game. Has to have been The X-Wing in a cameo appearance as just a regular X-Wing. (okay, I think we've milked this for all it's worth)

I know what you're all saying - but at the end of every game it never says "hat appears courtesy of [whoever]" but in a lucasarts game it ALWAYS says "seagull appears courtesy of Loom" if there is a seagull in the game. Always.

I don't think there was a seagull dedication in EMI, and it had seagulls in it.

Well, if it's in the credits it's a cameo. But as long as we can't read them I say it's not.

The seagull (1) has to sit, not fly, (2) possibly peck at something and (3) should be the same sprite.

"sprite" is an ancient term used by our forefathers to describe pixel accumulations that are animated/move in some way.

edit: Does anyone know whether the seagull in Indy: IM was credited?

Indy Infernal Machine? Where was this?

And, hmm, I doubt it's an intentional cameo.

That seagull was immortal. The amount of times I shot at it and it just refused to die.
