Software easter eggs are popular among programmers and geeks alike. No, you can’t eat them and they don’t count for you diet as calories. But like real easter eggs, they are hidden features found in some applications.

The OpenOffice.org easter egg is a space invader style game, hidden in OOo Calc. To find it:

  1. Open a new spreadsheet
  2. Enter the formula ‘=game()’ in any cell, press
  3. Enter in the next cell the formula ‘=game(“StarWars”)’

Voila, you got a game that resembles “Space Invaders”.
