Mystery Monday: Easter Egg (Part 2)

Oh no! Sorry all! I was not able to write up the post yesterday (Tuesday) because we had a little network problem. All fixed now! So I'm going to give you two posts today. This one's the draft from yesterday:

Guess what? I got another egg in my drawer again Monday! I have not been able to make much more progress on this mystery for these reasons: Eggs don't leave legible fingerprints! I know. I've tried. It's a textured element and is not smooth enough. There are no witnesses to question and I did not have a trip camera to catch the culprit in the act. There was no other evidence or events that could provide me clues. This is one tough mystery, I am sad to say. Or should I say, pleased to say?

Tuesday morning I decided to try coming in to the office earlier than I usually do, hoping to catch the Egg culprit in the act of putting a third egg in the drawer. No luck. There was no third egg, and no extra clues that morning. 

I am able to rule out a few people, though: the designer, lead tester, a 3D animator and our Sales director were not in the office Friday morning...the egg was there before them, which makes a good alibi.

Hmm...what shall I do next?

Oh hey! We have selected our caption contest winner from our Facebook Caption Contest! Congrats to Jennifer H. for her quote: "Um, don't look now, but the people who built these things?...their spaceship is right above us."

Weekend puzzle was cracked like an egg! Congrats! To solve it, take the first part and [unscramble it] to get the words [It's Locked]. Use this as your keyword and apply it to the below string of letters. It is a [Vigenére] cipher. You can look up how this kind of cipher works online. The end answer would be [Spying on Research]. Any thoughts what this could mean? ;)

How do we know it wasn't you who put the egg in your drawer, huh Little J.? ;) I think you just want to play Nancy Drew. Consider it HeR workers!!!

@Future HeR Animator -- Yes, indeed! Fingerprinting is very fun! Especially when it works XD

@Amy M. -- I'm super excited for this next game too! I've been snooping in the art files looking at the cool environments.

@Anonymous -- I can't prove that it wasn't me...but you can trust me. :) I for sure did not put that egg in my desk drawer.

Does the clue mean digging through someone else's reasearch in TMB??
How can you fingerprint and make it work because I think you can do it with makeup,but I haven't been able to make it work very well.

From me,

@Silvertongue -- The clue could mean something about a future game, or it could mean something in the office...but I will let you discover the answer on your own. ;)
