* In the ''VideoGame/CubeEscape'' series, ''Rusty Lake: Roots'' reveals that the Vanderboom family has had several men who attempted to create an elixir of immortality. Drinking the elixir has a ''big'' catch, though: it either turns you into a [[BirdPeople Bird Person]] with bizarre memory-related powers or kills you stone dead. Well, stone dead unless you can somehow convince several of your descendants to perform a complex resurrection ritual and even then, you are going to ''suffer''.
