Would this comic strip be better without the yellow box in the first panel?

You see, the idea for this particular comic strip came about a long time ago, and concerns a certain exploit/bug in a now rather old and somewhat forgotten zombie themed Roguelike named Rogue Survivor. Where no one could use the stairs or ladders if someone was already standing on it on the other side.

This idea is so old, that the exploit/bug has actually long since been fixed. I doubt the few people who even know this game, will even understand the reference I'm making.

Which is why I'm wondering whether or not I should get rid of the yellow box on the first panel. Does it detract from the joke, or does it help give context?

You can remove it, keeping the comic more free of spoilers. But for the many of us who've never heard of such a game it's essential you then mention the game in the description.

You make a good point. Most people have never heard of the game, and considering it doesn't have any spoilers in it. There's no good reason to remove it.

Thanks.
