* NinjaPirateZombieRobot - Wendy, the pirate astronaut scavenger who knows kung-fu. * NoEnding - Well, there ''is'', but with anachronistic order above, [[spoiler:the game ends with Alley's father using the titular device - a kid's observatory/constellation projector - while Alley's in her crib, watching the colors blend together to make the whites of the stars. It ends abruptly as you turn off the lights to her room. The farthest point in time is Wendy's father waking up at the hospital after the car crash that killed Alley.]] * PrecisionFStrike - There are a few in the introductory scene in the original version, but not in the newer versions. * SameFaceDifferentName - Adam Cadre submitted this game to the 1998 Interactive Fiction Competition under the name "Opal O'Donnell", out of fear that people would associate ''Photopia'' with his earlier sex farce game ''I-0''.
