This is an article about the Easter Eggs in Tomb Raider - Angel of Darkness.

What is an easter egg?[]

Definition from wikipedia.

While the term Easter egg has been used to mean a hidden object for some time, in reference to an Easter egg hunt, it has come to be more commonly used to mean a message, image, or feature hidden in a video game, movie, or other, usually electronic, medium. (source)

Parisian Backstreets[]

In the book shop (library) is a book with a face and "RAY" on it. It is Ray Tran, one of the designers.

Margot Carvier's Apartment[]

Parisian Ghetto Part 1[]

The two men are Hawk Manson and Ben “Smasher” Jackson. This is a reference to the cancelled game Fighting Force 3. It was developed in 2002-2003 by Core Design, at the same time when TRAOD was developed. But it was cancelled. Poor Core Design!

Cafe Metro[]

On top of the poster can be seen the word "Duggan". This is a reference to Fergus "Fergy" Duggan one of the designers of Tomb Raider - Angel of Darkness.

Saint Aicard's Church[]

This is a well known Easter Egg. At the entrance of the Saint Aicard's Church hangs two posters with names of the names of the developers of the game. Since this sublevel is all about boxing, it was written like a boxing advertising poster.

Saint Aicard's graveyard[]

Inside this tomb (with the blue door). You can find two squares with names on it. These are “Raymundo” and “Lilith”. My suspection is that Raymundo = Ray Tran.

It reads as follow:

  • Lileth
  • Raymundo
  • Alan
  • Carter
  • Geoff
  • Davy
  • Aidy
  • Helen?

Louvre Storm Drains[]
