** At one point you have to solve a puzzle and it involves ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDoctorJekyllAndMrHyde''. The fact that you have to encounter this book foreshadows [[spoiler:Duke's dual motivation of hating David and wanting him dead... and yet also having pity on David and wanting him to succeed where Duke failed.]]

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: When HardWorkHardlyWorks, let it go. There are times when your best just isn't good enough, and sometimes the insurmountable obstacles in your way are beyond your control to change; in those moments, there's no shame in finding another dream.

Added DiffLines:

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: [[spoiler: The root of David's problems; he couldn't become a pilot because of his colorblindness and there's nothing he can do to cure his mother. Fighting an unwinnable uphill battle against things you can't change by simply working harder just doesn't work, and it's ultimately what drove Duke to suicide.]]

* DreamCrushingHandicap: [[spoiler:David's childhood dream was to become a pilot, but being color blind (at least to certain colors, because he sure can see red just fine) disqualified him from that.]]



* SorryBillyButYouJustDontHaveLegs: [[spoiler:David's childhood dream was to become a pilot, but being color blind (at least to certain colors, because he sure can see red just fine) disqualified him from that.]]
** [[spoiler:David is probably red-green colorblind. He can see red and green just fine, but not in proximity to each other.]]

* MeaningfulName: Sissi

to:

* MeaningfulName: SissiSissi.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: David's mother is suffering from memory loss due to [[spoiler:a brain tumor]]. Because of this, she frequently forgets David is her son, which causes her to say and do hurtful and aggressive things to him despite normally being kind and caring. [[spoiler:One particularly bad day, David just couldn't take it anymore and briefly lost control of himself, grabbing his mother by the throat until his best friend Paul came to pull him off]]. He deeply regrets this, and his recollection of if later in the game causes him to plunge into a HeroicBSOD and [[spoiler:nearly commit suicide]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheOneThatGotAway: Three - Shirley for David, Sissi's unnamed old boyfriend, and [[spoiler:Duke's]] unnamed old girlfriend. [[spoiler:Technically, Sissi's ex-lover is just a representation of Duke's.]]
