Jak X: Combat Racing
1
The series' in-universe Precursor language appears in several instances throughout the game, most notably in a series of Story cutscenes. During news broadcasts covering the racing tournament, a news ticker scrolling across the bottom of the screen produces a developer message from Naughty Dog when translated. The message says hello to the player and alludes to save data-based unlockable contents. However, an as-of-yet undiscovered secret is explicitly shared; the message does offer an input code, but to date, no use or purpose for it has been found.

Various Easter eggs are hidden in the game's character files, most of which require their extensions to be manually altered:

• If the player changes the extension for Monika's character file to .png, the resulting image depicts a square of white noise inside a ring of fire and cracks. Converting the white noise to binary gives a text message encrypted in Base64. Decrypting it reveals what appears to be a monologue from Monika, who mentions a "Third Eye" that causes "some kind of deja vu," which is how she and the other girls are able to perceive alterations to the game's data.
• If the player changes the extension for Natsuki's character file to .jpeg, the resulting image file depicts a painting of a white-haired girl with blank white eyes. The image is heavily distorted, requiring the player to invert its colors and change its rectangular coordinates to polar ones in an image editor in order to view it properly.
• If the player changes the extension for Sayori's character file to .ogg, the resulting audio will become a discordant shriek, similar to that normally heard when converting a data file to audio. However, running sayori.ogg through a spectrograph reveals a QR code which, when scanned, leads to a fictitious examination report for a character named Libitina; her last name and a procedure administered to her are both redacted with a series of X's. Of note is that like Monika's hidden monologue, the report repeatedly mentions a "third eye."
• If the player opens Yuri's character file in a text editor, the result will be a message encrypted in Base64; the file extension does not need to be modified in order to do this. Decrypting the message reveals that it's "I Found a Box Containing the Story of a 19-Year-Old Girl Who Killed a Random Person for No Reason", a creepypasta that was anonymously posted on Thought Catalog in June 2015, over two years before Doki Doki Literature Club's release. In a Twitter reply, developer Dan Salvato confirmed that he was the creepypasta's author and the one who hid it in the game.

Deltarune
1
Attachment Although Chapter 1 was given a surprise release in 2018, with Toby Fox giving no prior public indications of its existence, Deltarune had been teased in secret since at least 2015. Three months after Undertale released, the fan site DeltaRune.com announced that it would be rebranding to Dreemurr.com at Fox's request; Fox didn't tell the owners of Dreemurr.com why he didn't want them to use the domain. However, after the fan site fulfilled his request, Fox used deltarune.com to host an image called him.png, a passage of Wingdings text only readable by turning up the brightness using image editing software.

While the text initially parroted the phrase "THIS NEXT (space) EXPERIMENT (space) SEEMS (space) VERY (space) VERY (space) INTERESTING" from the unused room_gaster event in Undertale, by July 1, 2016, the text was edited to read "THREE HEROES APPEARED (space) AT WORLD'S EDGE", later being edited again by August 17 to say "THREE HEROES APPEARED (space) TO BANISH THE ANGELS HEAVEN". Both revisions quote portions of the legend that Ralsei recounts in Chapter 1, indicating that these parts of the game's backstory were already conceived by this point.

Following the release of Chapter 1, deltarune.com would be refurbished as the official website for Deltarune itself. Consequently, earlier versions of the site only survive through snapshots on the Wayback Machine, a URL archiving platform hosted by the Internet Archive.

Attachment At the very beginning of Appendix v. The Lost Falls, after Ida presses the first switch in the level to raise the pillar the Totem is on up to where she is, a set of symbols carved into two sides of the pillar are revealed. These symbols are part of the ancient Zuish language from the game Fez, but they are used incorrectly in order to fit the message on the pillar (i.e. vertical spelling, no use of spaces, line breaks in the middle of words). When translated, it spells out this message:

TOSR
ONDO
GEAU
OINS
ATG
LIE

"TO GO ALONE IT IS DANGEROUS"

This not only acts as a reference to the popular quote at the start of The Legend of Zelda to show Ida receiving help, but also acts as foreshadowing to the end of the level where Spoiler:the Totem is destroyed by a crushing stone pillar while helping Ida get past it, forcing her to go through the rest of the Forgotten Shores levels on her own.

Attachment Shortly after the game's release, a screenshot started circulating online depicting the Seagallop ferryman in Vermilion City telling the player: "By the way: if you like this game, buy it or die." Those who posted the screenshot claimed that it was a hidden message which was only triggered if the game detected that it was running a pirated copy. This claim appeared to be further corroborated by people claiming that they had encountered the message themselves when playing the game with unofficial Game Boy Advance emulators or when hacking legitimate cartridges with cheat devices, and attracted further popularity after being disseminated by various gaming YouTubers.

However, while the screenshot was not photoshopped, the claim that it was an anti-piracy measure was not true. Rather, the text was added into the game's code by an anonymous individual who distributed a ROM of it online; the claim that it was an anti-piracy feature was most likely used by the individual to circumvent ROM distribution sites' restrictions on modified games. This explains why anecdotal reports of encountering the text were so much higher than what would be expected from a complete hoax, as well as why the text is absent when examining an unaltered ROM of the game in a hex editor.

After loading up the Commodore 64 version of the game and waiting until the title screen appears, going to address 8F40 with a memory viewer will reveal a hidden developer message. The message to discourage hackers from cracking the game is presumably from the game's creator Manfred Trenz, and reveals the date that the game began development:

"HI FOLKS, THE MANIAC IS BACK !!!
ONE QUESTION: WHY DO YOU WANT TO CRACK THIS PROGGY ???
CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW MUCH WORK I DID TO MAKE A GAME LIKE THIS ???

HERE SOME INFORMATIONS ABOUT: STARTING TIME: 01.02.1989 (OH YES)

In the Commodore 64 version of the game, there are two known messages written with destroyable blocks that are hidden out-of-bounds in two levels of the game. In Level 1-1, the year "1989", referring to the year the game began development, can be found in the middle of the map. The other message is hidden in Level 1-3, where the letters "DTE" can be found in the middle of a land mass in the bottom-right corner of the map.

Within the code of the Atari 7800 version is a hidden developer message stating, "Mommy and me are one". In 1985, experiments to gauge the practice of subliminal messaging had used this exact phrase, which is alleged to have raised self-motivation in test subjects.

Kingdom Hearts
subdirectory_arrow_right Kingdom Hearts (Franchise)
1
In each Dive to the Heart segment in almost every game in the series, there is a disembodied voice that can only speak through text that guides the characters (and thus the player as well) through the tutorial of each game. The identity of these voices has been unidentified in every game but Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (where it is obviously child Sora) and the first Kingdom Hearts. For the latter, in the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania, Nomura was asked who the voice is for the opening of the first game and he finally gave it's identity as being none other than King Mickey. However, this interview was done in the early 2000's before most of the sequels were produced, so it's unknown if this explanation was retconned or not.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

After defeating Solidus Snake at the end of the game, he falls to his death off of the Federal Hall building. Just before he falls however, if you look closely, you can see his lips move slightly in the brief moments that they are not covered by the collar of his exoskeleton. By replacing Solidus' model with Solid Snake's (who shares most of Solidus' facial features) through mods, it reveals that Solidus was actually saying one last message to Raiden. However, the dialogue during this moment is still muted, so Solidus' last words remain unknown.
Rampart

In the Sega Master System version of Rampart, there is unused text that reads "Jeff Spangenberg is a weenie", referring to Punk Development's founder. Coder Kevin Seghetti would explain this quip in an interview:

"I was in the middle of doing Rampart for RazorSoft at Punk Development when Jeff [Spangenberg] and I had a disagreement. I was helping Scott Statton debug the latest Genesis development system boards which had just come back from fab, and Jeff told me to get back to work on Rampart. I reminded him that I was doing Rampart under contract, I wasn't his employee, and he [didn't] get to tell me what to do. After a few more rounds of comments, which included him standing directly in front of me (he is quite tall) in an attempt at physical intimidation (which ended with me saying, "Go ahead and hit me, I could use the money"), he took the only action he could, which was to tell me I was no longer welcome in the Punk Development offices. So I packed up my stuff and moved it home and finished development of Rampart from there. So that comment is just a good-natured jab at him."
