When Hello Games stated that there were plenty of Easter Eggs to discover in No Man’s Sky, players across the universe meticulously searched for references to the developers, pop culture, and anything involving life on Earth. Finally, only a few days after the game’s launch on PlayStation 4, the first Easter Egg has been discovered.

While this alien monolith might just seem like a jumble of text, take a closer look. If you read each line backwards, you’ll uncover a hidden message.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, we, The Kovax, sought to boldly go where no one had gone before. And so we each took up our towels, held our thumbs aloft and hitchhiked our way across the universe to carve a monolith.

This quote references Star Wars, Star Trek, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. On the monolith, it seems that Korvax, the sentient machine species in the game, has been misspelled.

The discovery of this Easter Egg has not yet been confirmed by Hello Games, and there are already speculations that this could be a fake image. However, the references fit perfectly with the space exploration theme in No Man’s Sky.

Thanks to Reddit user fprusch for this awesome discovery – it’s been added to the Easter Eggs page on the No Man’s Sky Wiki.
