This feels like the right time to mention an Easter egg that everyone's passed over so far: these guys don't work on Saturdays! pic.twitter.com/kJydFBG4DG— Elan Ruskin (@despair) 19 April 2019
One fan quickly commented: “Wait how can you tell if it’s Saturday in-game?” Ruskin replied: “Real-life Saturday. It checks the clock on your PS4.” No way!
Not everyone seemed to understand the Easter egg. One fan asked if someone could explain, so another helpful gamer replied: “Orthodox Jewish people don’t do any work on Saturdays to honor Gods day of rest. It’s so extreme to the point where they won’t even leave the house or even cook food (meals are pre-prepared). So they don’t show up in the game on Saturdays (I think that’s what he’s implying).”
Wait what?! How did I never see this? Where and when and how? Also this is awesome— Artsy Chef (@Artsy_Chef) 19 April 2019
