Anyone of you tried to identify or find hidden stuff in DPL?
If not I'm doing that I try to find some hidden jams or interesting stuff while exploring the map. This topic is created to share those interesting tidbits unknown and forgotten all over the map of a 17 years old game.

First one is a poster it was a bit hard to identify, a French Art Deco advertisement poster dated back to 1930s.

New York Daily News 2005 Headliner

Front page of NY Daily News found on a news stand, it was hard to identify still fun to find. Front pager was heavily edited, I think you can notice Glenn Moore face on it with a military cap on his head. Maybe I'm wrong who knows?!!!

Clockwork Orange (eye opening scene)

Clockwork Orange (1971) famous movie I'm sure almost everyone in this forum or even visitors have seen or heard of this one. So the scene when they open Alex's eyes is found on some yellow newspaper kiosk all over DPL's streets you can find it easily.

Tattooed Woman




Very hard to find piece of art, I was thinking at first it was a photo of some Asian woman in 50s or something tattooed on her back but it turned to be a painting made by a Japanese painter "Ozuma Kaname" back in 90s exactly released on his second book in 1995.
