So few weeks ago I had a bit of a fun with Speedrun API, where usually during a day I did around 10k to 30k requests, gathering all sort of pointless informations, usually with a hopes of finding really awkward leaderboards.
Results of my work, were gathered in few different Pastebin documents, which are accessible by clicking on the corresponding links.Read more...
So reboot of Prey tried in many ways be like Bioshock and System Shock and whilst it was a bit of hit and miss, it did also feature 0451 easter egg.
Also, special shoutouts to 0451 speedrunning team and especially to CoolsVilla for providing the screenshots.
Dishonored also features a 451 reference. This code, hidden in sewers leading out of the prision is hidden behind some whisky and opens the first safe in the game.
Oddly enough, while 451 appeared first in System Shock (1994), people mostly remember it for being in Deus Ex. System Shock 2, being a sequel to System Shock obviously had to have featured it in some form. It’s a bit of a variation on the code, but it’s still good old 451. And it’s even a door code.
Probably the first instance of 451.
It’s a spiritual successor to System Shock… or at least it tries to be, so naturally it has to reference 451 - again, as a door code.
Creative Assembly also decided to implement that easter egg as a door code.
Another Deus Ex, another 451 reference. This time, again - as a first door code ever used.
Even that crappy game with Deus Ex in the title had used it.
I actually don’t know, if the code mentioned in any pocket secretaries. Doesn’t matter though, as trying it on the very first door is going to open it.
