I think anyone who works with text regularly has had an instance when you used Find and Replace to change a word, or more likely a character or project name. As we know, sometimes this can end up with some unintended results, especially if no proofreading is done after.
I encountered this text error in the game Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade. The game was originally in Russian and I don't think there was a lot done with the English text, because this is far from the only text error in it. I guess the Darina character was originally called Ruth, and after they changed it, nobody did a full proofreading pass.
Does anyone else have any other amusing proofreading errors in games or other media to share?
