Does anyone else get a rather impressive optical illusion with the in game image above? If I scroll up and down quickly the envelope in the background looks like it’s moving :shock:

Yes; especially if you focus on the framed pictures in the foreground? The envelope appears to shift left as you scroll up, and it seems to shift right as you scroll down.

Something to do with the diagonal lines maybe?

Yeah, that’s the best way to get the illusion.

I forgot to add that I’m using my phone so it’s much easier to quickly scroll up and down.
