In 2022, an Easter egg was discovered on the title screen of the Beta 1749 build of the game dating back to August 15, 2001. A hidden legible message can appear among the 8-bit text reading:

"this is whack
if you can

this you are to damn close"

This presumably refers to staring directly in front of the screen to read the tiny message.
