Nice work Hooman.. Now if we can just figure out WHY they did that?
You should read the entire topic before replying to it. Then you'd have read what Sirbomber wrote:

Now stop necro'ing things or else.

And if you really need to necro an old topic, you don't (don't, don't, don't) post such a pointless reply, which says nothing but the obvious. You post a relevant reply or nothing. (your reply isn't relevant, because everyone thinks that a remake would be great and everyone (but you) probably knows why dan's dog is there)

Before you complain: They did it, because they wanted to add something funny. Its an easter egg.

i've been thinking, dan's dog appears at a multiple of 32768, right? for some reason, i get that this is a date.
3/27/68. March 27, 1968 (what made me key this together was the 68. a year someone was born on most likely.)
so that got me to think even more... what if this means that Santa appears on a similar tic. something that relates to Christmas? I've heard it mentioned that Santa shows up when your computer clock shows it is Christmas(eve or day, cant remember.) mabie somebody can test this as if you where inputting dates related to the holiday....
my best guess is something like tick:
1224
1225
1224XX
1225XX
but the test must be done wile your computer date says it is Christmas eve or day(cant remember which
hope that made since.

that sounds interesting, though i have a copy of the dan's dog animation, its a dull easter egg in my opinion.

i think flashy gave it to me, its in a colony game file he (or who ever) gave me just for kicks.

32768 is decimal for the binary number 1000000000000000. Its unlikely that this coincides with a special date.

@ TH300, that is more what I meant, not that It's an easter egg.

@ ECC, well I dont know, go online and find the Haxial Calculator and plug in the number.. it can go from Radix 2 (binary) to radix 36 (0-9 + A-Z)...
I'm just trying a few things out.
