Secret patch updates Prey with REM lyrics as achievements

The moon is a harsh mistress

I love to start the weekend off right. And by that, I mean seeing some fun video game news that makes me shout at my screen uncontrollably.

There's a locked Twitter account for the Kasma Corporation right now, in addition to some information they've been hiding around the interwebs, including binary code in comments on NASA images of the Earth taken from the surface of the moon. Thanks to some reddit folks, we know that one of these include the phrase "The moon is a harsh mistress." Another hidden set of data linked to the following gif:
