Developer Remedy Entertainment has implemented a clever little Easter egg that appears if you pirated Quantum Break.

Sometimes, developers have a little bit of fun with those who pirate their game. Remedy has added a little Easter egg for those who pirate the game, so that there can be no doubt that they did.

Protagonist Jack Joyce will don an eye patch if you’re playing an illegally downloaded version of the game on PC. This little Easter egg could also crop up, however, if you don’t log into your Microsoft account before loading up the game.

Redditor disastorm, who is a proud owner of Quantum Break, posted the Easter egg, revealing how to go about getting yourself an eyepatch if you did purchase the game.

This isn’t the first time that Remedy has taken this approach. In Alan Wake, your character would also wind up with an eyepatch, while loading screen messages would encourage you to buy the game, if you pirated the game.
