The Last of Us fans are rediscovering the Clicker Easter egg found in Life is Strange 2. 

As shared in The Last of Us Subreddit (opens in new tab), fans of the apocalyptic action game are being reminded of a pretty clear reference to the game in chapter 2 of Life is Strange 2

In the narrative adventure, brothers Sean and Daniel - who are running away from home - find themselves strolling through the forest when the younger of the two spots a strange-looking fungus growing on a nearby tree. Daniel, having spotted the mushroom-clad tree, notes to his brother “uhh… you see that? Looks like a Clicker…” Sean then starts making a clicking noise replicating the infected found in The Last of Us and scaring his younger sibling.

Life Is Strange 2 has a cool TLOU reference from r/thelastofus

As well as being referenced in other games, Naughty Dog’s influential survival horror game is also hiding its fair share of references which can be found in our The Last of Us 2 Easter eggs list. Primarily those from other Naughty Dog series like Uncharted, Crash Bandicoot, and Jak & Daxter. 

As for Life is Strange, the next game in the series has been revealed to be Life is Strange: True Colors. This will be the fourth game in the series after the original Life is Strange game, its prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm, and Life is Strange 2. It'll also be developed by Deck Nine, not original developer Dontnod, after rumors that the original studio had moved on from the series.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
