Where are the easter eggs in The Talos Principle and how do you obtain them?

These are the easter eggs I have found:

  1. At the messenger place at hall B there is a secret path underwater, which leads to The Swapper statue.

  2. At some world in B there is a boarded up "door", which you can break with a metal [tool?]

  3. At B4 right near teleport you can open stone" " door and see "Entry denied" message. It is "usable", but I don't know how to activate it.

  4. At some world in C, near "7 doors" puzzle you can find a Minecraft sword.

  5. At some world at B (B2? the one with 4 statues and the star near them) you can find a hole with a bed.

and I think there should be more.

    b) Hidden Cave: In the "Behind the Iron Curtain puzzle", get to the fan with 2 boxes and bring those up on the platform. Now put one on the air flow, use the other one to jump on it then take it with you before jumping on the wall. Now jump into the small area below. Here start by sending the box outside using the fan, then take the other fan with you before getting outside. From here take the box and the fan to the other side of the nearest sunken contraption. Use the box to get on the wall and put the fan into the mechanism. Jump on this fan ! You will land right next to the teleporter.

  12. World B-6

    Sam's Room: You need to climb to the top of the teleporter room. Start from the only stone you can jump on, next jump on the statue and then on the wall.

  15. World C-1

    a) Glitchy Room with Elohim: Looking at the entrance of the puzzle "The Conservatory", follow the right wall of this puzzle. You will soon hear and see a glitchy square on the ground. Just walk on it. (Having discovered this one myself, I find that if walking on it doesn't trigger it, try jumping on it)

    b) Gnaar Statue: On this map you can find 10 parts of a Gnaar statue hidden a bit everywhere outside the puzzles areas. There is a pedestal on which you can rebuild it for a little surprise.

  16. World C-2

    b) Telescope & King Gnaar: Inside the "Rapunzel" puzzle, if you go up the ladder and turn around, you can get a key on the left gargoyle. From here you need to bring up a platform and a Hexahedron. Then record yourself first holding the platform next to the box (so you can jump on it) then jump on the cube to get high enough to reach the telescope. The Gnaar is at the top of one of the mountain.

    c) Snowman: In the "Jammer Quarantine" puzzle, it's behind the quarantined jammer on the promontory. I reached it using the jetpack but maybe it's also possible using an Hexahedron. Don't forget to fix up his fallen button for a surprise.

    d) Jetpack: To be able to get this you need to finish every puzzle in this level and get the star. If you don't the path will be closed. In the puzzle "Big Stairs, Little Stairs", go straight ahead of the entrance and to the cliff edge on the right of the blue laser emitter. Here if you jump down carefully you will reach a cave.

    e) Frozen Gnaar Cave: To get in there you need to fly below the entrance of the "Big Stairs, Little Stairs" puzzle using the jetpack.The puzzle to get inside won't be hard to solve if you got that far. You need: 3 Jammers, 2 Hexahedrons, 1 Fan, 1 Connector and a Red laser from the "Three Little Connectors... and a Fan" puzzle.

  18. World C-4

    Pictures of the developers: Before the "Stables" puzzle, jump on one of the left gargoyles and then on the wall. The pictures are on the balcony, you can get up there using the "Casual" or the "Hardcore" way.

  22. Tower

    a) Hidden QR Code: From the floor 5, go out the window to the pigeons, then jump down on the left of to level 4's roof instead of aiming for the star. From here jump again to the left and land on the roof of floor 3's elevator. The QR code will be on the balcony on the right of the elevator.

    b) Serious Sam Game Poster: Take the same path than for the QR code, but instead of jumping down to the balcony at the end, jump to the other side of it. From here you can jump on top of floor 2 puzzle.
