In some games, developers of hidden “Easter eggs” found only after a long time. Fans of Batman: Arkham Asylum took 11 years to look for the textures in one of the first scenes of KUB with classic images of Harley Quinn. But it’s definitely not a record. Recently the user forum Reddit under the nickname ZombiePizzas1999 shared the terrible secret of Silent Hill 2. He was found 19 years later after the release.
The secret developers from Team Silent put at the beginning of the start-up image. When the main character James Sunderland comes to the mirror, his reflection is almost impossible to see his eyes – all because exhibited in a special way of lighting. ZombiePizzas1999 made screenshot at this point and wanted to use a picture to create a meme. When the player started to adjust the contrast, the reflection of James became lighter. The area around the eyes has ceased to be dark, and it turned out that the image in the mirror looks straight into the camera. That is, Team Silent at the beginning of Silent Hill 2 broke the fourth wall.
Commentators on Reddit like a godsend ZombiePizzas1999. Many have said that “Easter eggs” is pretty creepy, and it can cause insomnia.
Silent Hill 2 was released in September 2001 on the PS2 in the US and Japan. In November of the same year, she appeared in Europe, and was later ported to PC and Xbox.
