We doubt anyone pays attention to what’s on a gaming disc, unless the thing is scratched.
But if you have a copy of 2004’s The Bard’s Tale, the rather funny RPG has an easter egg printed on the disc certain fans might be aware of.
For the rest of us underlings, we’ve only just discovered the joke via a tweet posted by @ajelansolo on Saturday. Here he’s posted a picture of the PlayStation 2 disc, which has the message “really disturbing image… flip disc over.”
The disc, of course, is reflective.
According to VGFacts, the message is also printed on the PC and Xbox versions of the game.
Despite the game being nearly 14 years old now, some owners had only just discovered the easter egg.
The Bard’s Tale is still a great game , even better now I know the disc is sort of an ass. Can’t believe I have owned this game since release and never noticed that. Only 14 years.

I was 95% sure it was Bard’s Tale because that’s so solidly in line with the humor in that game XD
