It's ... guess where the EA logo is hidden

Originally posted by Pseudo Intellectual on Mobygames. Quite interesting so I think is interesting to post it here too.

Basically, on the cover of the first 37 games EA produced, the EOA logo is "hidden" (besides the obvious normal logo).

"Together with Bing Gordon, [Nancy L. Fong] came up with the idea to hide the three shapes of the Electronic Arts' cube-sphere-pyramid "EOA" logo in the first 37 game titles EA ever produced. This idea was borrowed from the way Playboy hid their bunny symbol on their magazine covers."

Not all of them are available on Amiga but anyway I though it was fun to try and hunt them.

For instance, I guess I would have never noticed the ones on Deathlord cover if I had not known they were present:

You can check the boxcans on HOL ofc.

Otherwise, if you are not familiar with Mobygames, just go to a game entry and click on Covert Art in the left menu.

Ofc, you can play for yourself by not reading the linked thread and the replies here.

Edit: Not sure what produced meant.
So here are the list sorted by date of game published and developed (more likely) by EA:

IMO it is the top right, top left and bottom left squares with magic symbols inside them.
Inside each square you have 4 circles/squares/triangles marking the corners of an invisible square.
