An in-game screen shot of Egon's lab had a child's drawing hanging up in the background. It is a crayon drawing of a Ghostbuster firing his proton pack. The words under it read, "To Uncle Egon, from Ed." This could be a reference to Ed Spengler from the fan films Freddy vs Ghostbusters
(2004) and Return of the Ghostbusters
(2007). When the game is set to take place, Ed would have been just a child. See more
