* ActorAllusion: "Have you seen this boy?" Delivered absolutely perfectly by Robert Patrick, who played the T-1000 in [[Film/{{Terminator}} Terminator 2]].
* DevelopmentHell: The game that got released was actually the ''third'' version of ''The Dig'' that LucasArts had worked on. The earlier two iterations of the project never got finished due to assorted difficulties in development. All told, about five years elapsed from the initial game idea pitch by Creator/StevenSpielberg to the release of the final ''Dig''. Not unusual for today's market, but a lot at the time.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Spielberg originally imagined the story for live action television, then as a film he would have made with George Lucas, but it would have been far too difficult and expensive to portray the story via live action and [=CGI=] so he proposed it as a video game. The idea of making it into a film has never been officially shot down, but it hasn't gone forward at all either.

* DisneyDeath: One of the earlier versions that never got released averted this ''hard''. Instead of the first death among the astronaut crew being [[spoiler:Brink falling down a hole and bloodlessly breaking his neck]], it happened when a Japanese astronaut tried to cross the hard, encrusted top layer of a suspiciously steaming lake. [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel He broke through into the acid pool below, thrashed his way to the other side while]] ''[[HighOctaneNightmareFuel literally melting to death]]'', [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel and ended up a bloody skeleton on the other side of the acid lake.]] In full view of the other [[WhatCouldHaveBeen three]] astronauts. Naturally, this was the version that introduced the HandInTheHole puzzle.
