The "Bug" and/or "Alien" you guys are referring to is actually Georgia Tech's mascot "Buzz" (A yellow jacket). The software was developed in Atlanta, Ga and some of the development team went to Ga. Tech...Hence the appearance of "Buzz". And the possum was an unofficial mascot of the development team as a whole (since all of them did not attend Ga. Tech.).

The possum seems to follow only when you move. Otherwise it plays dead

Did anyone else end up in a maze? It is a big maze. I just found this egg so I have not throughly explored the maze. I am running "Word Pro 97 for Windows 95" on Windows 98 Second Edition. Besides people on the wall I also found a cartoon that looks like a cricket.

It dies when you go near it, I think. I remember a while ago, in Primary 7, my teacher told the class that she'd been on holiday to New Zealand, and she said that the roads are littered with dead possums. She explained that she'd never seen a live one before, so a man showed her a live possum, up in a tree. He then asked her if she'd had a good enough look at it. She said yes, and he shot it.

Why a possum? The possum was the mascot of the Word Pro development team. Possums equate to road kill, a fitting metaphor regarding Word Pro's life expectancy vs. MS Word. Engineers can have a very warped sense of humor.

I've found that you have to double click on the M&M to access the maze. A single click just makes the possum vanish and resets the e-egg. Once in the maze, it's true there is a possum running around and it does roll onto it back and kick its legs in the air when you run into (or close to) it.
