I found something unexpected in a random cave Outriders. It is a formation of stones and shells that looks very much like a penguin. At least I think so. Maybe I’m going out of my mind after a year of pandemic lockdown.
You can find this rock formation in the “Wreck zoneArea in Outriders. Especially in a cave at the beginning of “Clearwater Springs”. This is a cave that you walked through for a couple of quests. The first time I walked by, I stopped and noticed this penguin.
When I was playing co-op with a colleague a few days later Kotaku Writer Ari Notis, I pointed out the rock formation and he agreed. It looked very much like a penguin. When I shared a picture of it with others, they agreed that this looked like a penguin.
When I look around the cave, I cannot see a similar collection of shells and stones. It seems intentionally placed. If you created this cave or this penguin please contact me. Regardless, it seems clear to me that this is a penguin.
But when I search the internet I can’t find anyone who appears to be seeing the penguin that I am seeing. Did I discover a super secret Easter egg that was hidden by a bored level designer or artist? Or am I just analyzing a collection of stones and shells?
So I come to you dear Kotaku Reader, and ask a simple question: do you see the penguin? Be honest.
