Quoting David Griffith:

> Finally the answer to the graffiti Plexar was here that appears in several 
> games. Verbatim response from the author, Steve Hales:
>      The game, Slime, was one of my first arcade style games. The aliens 
> that were attacking you, were called the Plexarians. It was an easter egg 
> that I put into Fort in the form of graffiti, hence "Plexar was here". It 
> appeared in a few other games from some friends of mine. Atari ST mostly.
