Can you please put something Austin Powers in WHF?

So, you're Canadian. Mike Myers is also Canadian. You're making a game set in 1960s England. Mike Myers also has a body of work starring a protagonist fr--okay, we both know where this is going by this point, so I'll cut right to it: please add an Austin Powers-ish extra into We Happy Few.

I know New Line Cinema technically owns the rights to the Austin Powers franchise, but you could have a Boston Bowers, or a Dustin Flowers, or a Thrust-in Showers, know what, you have enough creative people on your team to think of something less rampantly ripoff-y while still being clever about it. Whether he'd be a regular ol' junkie for Joy with a residence in Wellington Wells, or surprisingly recast as a Downer in the various crumbling ghettos; or just an Easter-egg costume for our precious Artie Hastings, it almost seems a given that WHF should have some loving tribute to the other lasting remnant of the UK's psychedelic '60s culture.

Also, I realize the budget is probably tight, but even better would be a random cameo from a certain..."Shmike Shmyers."

    You should see what the Fab Threads crafting menu art looks like. It's groovy, baby.

    I believe at least one of the dlc's will be truly shagadelic, baby. More than than I cannot say.

    Me thinks me must learn to do me research befores me commits to a product :(

    I know I am in a minority here, especially given that a fair whack of the Compulsion team has commented. I'll just spill it, not an Austin Powers/Mike Myers fan. So that does make me a bit

    Never the less, I will endeavor to behave myself while a guest in Wellington Wells. :) Perhaps fate will intervene and the Easter Bunny will do a really good job hiding said eggs and I will miss a few of the less obvious ones. :)

    Otherwise, enjoying what I have experienced thus far. I don't think I have caught on to the eggs in question. As a side, I enjoy Contrast as well. So I am a fan of yours. And for what it is worth to you, color me one of the Happys not upset by the whole Gearbox situation. Bottom line; a wee bit miffed. Still looking forward to April 13th though.
