Neat easter egg I found,

In Episode 4 when touring the lodge eventually you get to the main lodge room. Go upstairs and look at the painting on the wall.

That painting is actually a Microsoft Tag reading code. Scan it an it will dial a number for a creepy call.

The number is 1-857-239-7601 for those that don't want to go searching.

:p

I wonder if there's more like this?

Here is another one found in chapter 6. It's in one of the rooms in the New York scene where he freaks out.

The phone number is 1-857-239-7600.

Picture coming soon.

I'm guessing the number is different in the UK release, if it's there at all.

It's Emil Hartman's answering machine, but it has static and a dark voice whispering overlayed over it. It's pretty cool. Nice find

"Error. There was no survey found for the given parameters." That's all I got when I called it.

Makes me remember that Xbox 360 and the Night spring game i found in one of the patient room in hartman's place. Not quite related to the topic but for those that do not explore i thought i'd mention it. :p

There is another tag in the very beginning of the game when you're in the Nightmare tutorial.

Just before you head down the first flight of stairs after leaving the hit-and-run scene outside the tunnel, it's on the bulletin board to your right next to the missing poster.

It's not just Nightmare. I noticed it last night on Normal.

So, how do these images work, anyway?

called both. thats awesome. tried permutations of the number by changing the last digit. they dial to the same place but 1857 239 7602 asks for a user id. not sure what that is. maybe we should keep our eyes peeled for a tag mentioning something of the sort?

The Official Survival Guide of Prima Games also lists up three "Digital Bar Code Easter Eggs", all of them have been mentioned in this thread.

Living in the "wrong" country causes problems for me calling these numbers :(. Can anyone make a YouTube Video or something and record the phone calls?

This would be really appreciated. Thanks :)

This reminds me of the God of War phone number easter egg. I love it when people care that much to make a phone number just for an answering machine message. ^^

Yep, it's great when developers care enough about the game their making to give the players something to chuckle at. Shows real love for what they're making and a little respect for the gamer taking the time to play it.

I know this isn't a phone easter egg, but it's an easter egg nonetheless.
Not sure about this 100% but at the end of the game, at the last T.V. When Alan is done talking on the talk show, they tell the other guy to "do that face one more time." I think that's the guy who's Max Payne's face was textured with in the first game.
