The Last of Us: Left Behind

In this game Ellie has to get to da choppa, and for some reason this helicopter that has crashed in the middle of the USA is from the Swiss air force:

Maybe Switzerland tried to provide aid in the post-apocalpyse. Probably helped by Iceland, in order to get that chopper across the Atlantic Ocean.

For reference, here’s a real Swiss air force chopper:

And here’s the Swiss-American chopper from the game again, also with a Swiss Cross on its belly:

Shadow in the Cloud

In this World War II action-horror flick, at least one of the pilots must have Swiss ancestry. That’s the only way to explain the little altar to Switzerland he built into the bomber right above the cockpit, visible here behind Chloë Grace Moretz:

Tesla vs. Lovecraft

Nikola Tesla, you might not realize, was a Swiss man. Why else would he be so overjoyed when he picks up a crate marked with the symbol of his motherland in Tesla vs. Lovecraft? Such is his elation that his health recovers immediately.

Astounding!

Surgeon Simulator 2

With this brand new sequel the development team learned a lot about crafting a compelling game, but unfortunately they unlearned anything they might have known about correct coloring for medical symbols:

This surgeon has the Swiss Cross on her chest, but she clearly isn’t Swiss. She’s looking way too cheerful for that. Actual Swiss people mostly just gurn.

General Horse and the Package of Doom

You can’t say that this game exactly breathes polish, and so there’s little surprise the first aid kit is really a pouch of emergency rösti:

Prey

In space, no one can hear you scream, but the fabricators at least make Swiss chocolate you can stuff your mouth with to dampen the noise:

I wonder what the handle is for. Chocolate isn’t that heavy. Maybe the thing has a built-in cooling system.

This Pinball Madness technician

This pinball technician is probably from Switzerland, and since he is working abroad in California, USA, he likes to demonstrate his patriotism by wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the Swiss Cross:

That way visitors know that if they want the best technician, they should call the Swiss technician.

YouTube’s “thanks, doc” emoji

It makes sense that the Californians working at Google don’t know better, but since Google also has an R&D center in Zürich, I did expect them to know that this:

does not mean “thanks, doc”, but “I love Switzerland”. Or alternatively, “this organ for use in Switzerland only”.

Ministry of Broadcast

This guy lives in a dystopian society, yet he has a box of Swiss pralinés on his shelf. I call shenanigans.

Wasteland 2

Surely this can’t be a realistic depiction of a wasteland when you still have huge boxes of Swiss chocolate just lying around:

Swiss chocolate (or fondue) next to a shack in the desert

It’s a bit sad that someone must have already eaten all the chocolate out of this particular one, since all it contained was chocolate-unrelated medical items. But perhaps the previous owner simply finished off the chocolate and thought it would be a good idea to store first aid kits in the box instead of throwing it away. Resourceful, and in line with the whole post-apocalyptic theme.
