Twin Peaks Easter Egg in Resident Evil 2

She’s dead, hidden in the RPD!

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to finally get the remake we gamers have been yearning for, Resident Evil 2. And after the long wait, fans were not disappointed. The game was fantastic, the graphics were superb, and just recently it got even better. Twitter user @USS_CMD has stumbled across an epic Easter egg hidden away on one of the notice boards in the morgue of the RPD building. If you look hard enough, you can see what is clearly an image of our favourite dead girl, Laura Palmer.

Now as a Twin Peaks mega fan, this makes me very happy. I love a good Easter egg, and when it’s related to something I love, like Twin Peaks, well that’s just perfect. Who can forget the chevron floor reminiscent of the Red Room in Evil Within 2? Or the ‘Fire Walk With Me’ scratched into a mirror in Life is Strange? Twin Peaks has obviously influenced a lot of people working in the gaming industry, and so it should. It’s so stylish and mysterious, of course game developers love it!

I don’t know about you, but this has inspired me to get back into Raccoon City and search for any more hidden Twin Peaks treats. Let us know if you have found any in this, or any other recent games lately.
