The secret has been confirmed on reddit (Minceraft, a post mortem : Minecraft

So a while ago, I did some intentionally obscure code in the title screen to switch two letters around, making it say "Minceraft" (old running gag, there's even a "minceraft" mockup t shirt design we did) instead of "Minecraft" on every 10000th game launch or so, and nobody found it! I was so happy about that, I finally knew something about the game the players didn't know.
Bit of a letdown, but hey, very sneaky.
