The Mushroom Kingdom’s sunny climbs have worked their way into Techland’s Dying Light, with a sneaky reference having been hidden away by the developer.

As uncovered by YouTube’s xGarbett, players can discover the novelty Easter Egg by accessing a chimney top in south-west Old Town. This then warps them to a corridor that that echoes the blocky design of Nintendo’s lauded platformer, where your only challenge is to reach the other end unscathed.

Miniature zombies with garbage bags over the heads look to emulate Goombas, although there’s little point to parkouring your way down hazardous route aside from to raise a short-lived smile while playing the grizzly survival horror.
