Stray has a number of Easter eggs tucked away inside its densely-populated environments. While it’s easy to miss the crowbar nodding towards Half-Life and the brief reference to Skyrim when speaking to the robot populace, Stay’s QR codes are perhaps the most tricky to decipher Easter eggs. However, for those who put in the effort, a wholesome reward awaits.
Stray QR codes hide hidden messages from the developer
With the game now accessible to all PS5, PS4, and PC players, Stray Easter eggs discoveries are being found rapidly. Some of the more interesting ones are QR codes, which show a binary code when scanned. Translating these codes into English provides a collection of fun messages from the developer, BlueTwelve Studio.
As discovered by Reddit user “Only_Beat1035,” one of the channels on the interactive TV in the Slums area has a small QR code hidden in the bottom-left of the screen. Scanning this reveals the “Hello you! :3” message. Isn’t that nice?
Another Reddit user, “Bashfullylascivious,” shared another QR code that appeared in the same location. This one says “The quick brown fox jumps over 13 lazy dogs,” though the animals are replaced with emojis.
