Hidden message discovered in Dino Crisis PS1 demo disc hints at a developer’s depression


A demo version of the original Dino Crisis, which shipped with copies of RE3 on PS1 or on countless magazine demo disc collections, apparently contains a depression fueled message from a developer.

Discovered by Twitter user @OneSanitarium and brought to our attention by GAF user Jawmuncher, the message is briefly shown in the “to be continued” screen that displays when you beat the Dino Crisis demo.

When the image is extracted from the disc and enhanced, it reads as follows:

I don’t think this is a joke, it would be too morbid to put into a retail demo disc. It seems like a cry for help from one of the game’s developers. Hopefully whoever put this in the demo disc got the help they needed.
