Trivia

  • The preview page of the Mecha Update is directly based off the movie poster of the Japanese, sci-fi kaiju film, "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II".
  • The strips of paper with numbers and blocks on the page are formatted as a punch card. When decoded, it reveals the message, "UPDATE IMMINENT DECEMBER 20 2012"
  • The middle screen of the Mecha-Engineer poster that says, "Hats, all your ha_" is a reference to the meme "All your base are belong to us." from the video game Zero Wing.
