Two questions, really:

  • Does the game explain at some point where those red "eggs" come from?
  • Where does these red "eggs" come from?

    I don't agree with that cypher thingy

    Yeah, just add a spoilers tag to the question. If you don't want spoilers, you won't want to see the answers anyway, and therefore won't click the question.

  • To be honest, I didn't want to read the full story just yet as I hadn't yet finished the game... Hence why I split the answer in two parts, does the game tell you (is it a spoiler in the first place?) and the spoily part itself.

The eggs are being spit by the flower-like things. You can destroy the flowers.

Also, the big slow flying monsters ("Spore Generators") lay them.

    The flower-like things are called triffids.

All the red stuff is either a virus, or something infected by it (in the case of red darwinians)

Here's an enemy guide I found


to answer your first question: no, the game won't explain about the origin of the eggs. But it will explain the origin of virus in the end - but I don't want to spoil it for you, let's just say I liked it


Like everything else, they are created by the virus.

They are some sort of "plant" that drop them where they detect your activity.
