It's wild to think that one film director—Ridley Scott—is responsible for two of the most influential sci-fi films of all time.

Alien: Isolation, the (pretty good!) new horror game from Creative Assembly, pays direct homage to one of those films, Scott's 1979 horror classic Alien. What I totally missed while playing it (I can't believe I missed this) is that it also sneaks in a nod to the director's other masterpiece, 1982's Blade Runner.

Eurogamer spotted the easter egg, and runs through where to find it in this video:

Not bad. It's probably not enough to get me to creep through those scary-ass levels one more time just to see if I can find them, but it's good to know those little origami figures are out there.

Am I right in saying that they confirmed Alien and Blade a Runner are canon to each other? I think Ridley said it shortly after Prometheus was released.
