GB fans found at Valve software

Ghostbusters fans show up in the strangest places.

While trying out Sierra Studio’s new first-person shoot-em-up, Half-Life, the staff of Proton Charging noticed something odd. There’s a big gun, that fires a stream of destructive particles, that is referred to in the game’s control console as “Egon”. On a whim Proton Charging emailed the game’s developers, Valve to ask them about it.
Valve staff replied quickly;

“The ‘official’ name of the weapon is the Gluon Gun, but in development we always called it the Egon Gun… because it looks like the Ghostbuster weapon.”
