In build 1227, which is available next to build 1175, the Easter egg itself remains, but the staff role's name is wiped out, 'You would have expected the developer's name to come out, but not. Thank you. 'Thank you ...' was displayed.
Build 1227 (no builds between 1175 and 1227 are available) changes this to a much shorter Thank You note to beta testers, removing all credits-esque features. This revision stayed in until build 1327 which removed the easter egg completely. The MID is present but doesn't play. pic.twitter.com/uNr861xt2w— Albacore (@thebookisclosed) March 27, 2021
