A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, or video game. The term draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many western nations. There are messages from the Levelord that are hidden throughout Duke Nukem 3D. The hardest one to find is the message "Duke Was Here 2017". Well, here it is:

  • In Hotel Hell, go into the swimming pool. Swim over to the crack, and blow up the wall. Go into the cave, and surface in the bathroom stall. When in the stall, notice that one wall reveals a flaming cavern. On the wall with the entryway to the cavern, look up. Near the ceiling, you'll see an elongated green blob. Fly up and look close. It reads:
    • DHUEKREE W2A0S17
  • Rearranged, this reads:
    • DUKE WAS HERE 2017
