Easter Eggs are hidden surprises and inside jokes that can be found in Outlast.

Developer Names in the Game

Throughout the game the player can find many appliances with the name "Morin" on them such as pens, heaters, refrigerators, televisions and prescription bottles. This is a reference to Philippe Morin, the co-founder of Red Barrels. The player can also find the name "Helman" on the computer screens. This is a reference to Jamie Helman, the senior animator of the game.


Falling Security Guard in the Elevator

At the beginning of Administration Block chapter, the player can walk up to the elevator, located in the middle of the hallway and trigger an optional event by pressing the elevator button, which will result in a screaming security guard falling down the elevator shaft to his death. This sequence was later included in the Xbox One version as an achievement for the game.

I Am Legend Reference

The game makes a reference to an ending scene from the 2007 horror movie, I Am Legend, when Chris Walker breaks through the forth airlock in Prison Block.

Evil Dead 2 Chainsaw Outline

Evil Dead 2 Chainsaw Chalk Outline.

At the beginning of the Courtyard chapter, the player can go to the shack with the key in it. Using the camcorder's night vision, a chalk outline of a chainsaw can be found above the key. This is a reference to a scene from Evil Dead 2.

Red Barrels References

  • Red Barrels on the emergency lights in the Underground Lab.
  • Blue barrels with the Red Barrels reference on them.

In the Underground Lab chapter, if the player zooms in on one of the emergency lights it will say "Red Barrels" on it, which is the name of the studio that made Outlast. If the player also looks closely at the blue barrels in the chapter, they will see that they say "This is not a red barrel" with the logo of Red Barrels Studio on them to oppose the cliché, as the studio never intended to feature any red barrels in Outlast.

Outlast Trailer Reference

In the beggining of the game right after Miles gets into the first room and the light goes out, player can turn on the night vision of the camera and to their left there will be three picures. If the player gets too close to the first picture, they can see Mount Massive from the first trailer of the game, where player is pursued by Chris Walker.
