** The premise of an author traveling to a long-vacant mansion to type up a new novel in an appropriate atmosphere, only to be distracted repeatedly by eerie goings-on, is straight out of the AllStarCast creep-fest ''House of the Long Shadows''.

** The entire process that unlocks the secret ending is a reference to ''Film/TheShining'', as it involves clicking Micheal's typewriter multiple times throughout the game, and each time Micheal says something different, also noted in his diary. [[spoiler: Over time, he eventually goes mad, eventually not wanting to look at the typewriter at all and saying in his diary, "I am not Micheal Arthate. He used to be a great writer. But me, I can't write. I am a nobody."]] Another step requires selecting the responses in the conversation with Chief Bailey that sound more unhinged.
