Murdered: Soul Suspect Edit
In the game Murdered: Soul Suspect, reading the minds of civilians may reveal them wondering. "What is that game with the woman who raids the tombs?"
In the video game Primal there is a cemetery on the world Artha where you can find a headstone inscribed with "R.I.P. Laura Cruft 2003". This may be a reference to The Angel of Darkness, whose release date had been postponed several times until it finally reached stores on July, 1st. (There is a screenshot in the Primal article.)
