i was playing spelunky with my friend. i bought a gift and dropped it down a level towards the exit. but there was an altar right below it, and when it dropped, it turned into what looked like an eggplant. the music also changed to this weird distorted version of the music, has anyone else had this happen?

The music distortion was probably the ghost. The "eggplant" could've been sticky paste? I'm fairly interested too, but I had a hard time getting a level with a mystery box and an altar. (I know, sounds ridiculous, but I spent around 6 different runs trying to find one.)

WHAT THE HELL!? .... Shocked






Sure enough, putting a present on Kali's altar awards you with an ACTUAL eggplant.... just... wow..


The music isn't just "distorted." I can't even describe what happens to it. Pretty freaky and shocking, to be honest.

EDIT: Ah, sorry. Had my sound turned down a little. The music isn't distorted, it's a whole new track! This is a BIG secret!!


Now we can look around for things we can do with the eggplant. (aka, what we can apply it to, throw it at, make use of it for etc.) We could hypothesize what things it could work with/we could try.

After about 50 retries in the Mines (since a shop is guaranteed in 1-2) I managed to get this to happen too. Smiley Pretty weird easter egg(plant)! All I did was pick it up, then whip it (which obliterated it so I didn't get to do anything with the eggplant - d'oh!). If anyone else wants to find out what the eggplant does do not whip it! Now I wonder if anything happens if you can get a Crystal Monkey and this eggplant to appear at the same time... O_O

I might try again later in multiplayer to see if the wrapped items work too, could save a lot of time if it does

For anyone wondering, the music that plays is this:

Notice I posted a comment 2 months ago wondering how to get it to play, glad to say I finally know!

Has anyone tried taking it to the jungle and feeding it to a Mantrap?

Freakin' awesome.

Gonna be trying to beat the game with the eggplant in hand. Chances are nothing will happen, but still. Gonna be streaming it in a little bit at vinesauce.com, also will be doing so the next few days periodically (streamer name is KY), if anyone is interested in watching me attempt it.

So awesome. Been trying different things;
Feeding to Mantrap, Worm, does nothing.
Putting in water, nothing.
Shopkeepers won't buy it.
