There is a novelization, written by Creator/AlanDeanFoster, which was included in the box with some releases of the game. However, if you're getting the game these days, it's more likely that you'll be getting the game without a box of any kind, since today it is sold by [=LucasArts=] on {{Steam}}.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: Despite being repeatedly mentioned as a former soldier and thus the most physically proficient member of the team, Commander Low is repeatedly worsted by [[spoiler: Brink, a scientist and who probably hasn't been in a fight since kindergarten.]] The second time is even more embarrassing, as [[spoiler: Brink]] makes his hostile intent incredibly obvious and had earlier lost a hand.

* ActorAllusion: Boston Low: "Have you seen this boy?" Delivered absolutely perfectly by Robert Patrick, who played the T-1000 in [[Film/{{Terminator}} Terminator 2]].
* AlienGeometries: Judging from their architecture and machinery design, the Cocytans are very fond of the 5 Platonic solids, see SinisterGeometry below.

* PixelHunt: The programmers went out of their way to make the game pretty. They were decidedly lax on making it obvious which parts were objects that can be interacted with.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Low is [[{{Terminator}} Robert]] [[TheXFiles Patrick]], and Dr. Brink is Creator/SteveBlum.



* LateToTheTragedy: The Earth astronauts missed the Cocytans by a undefined length of time that's stated at least a few million years, and they are far from the first to judge by the collection of abandoned rusting spacecraft they encounter.

* RagnarokProofing: At one point, Low comments on how Cocytus is completely unpopulated, but all the machinery seems to be working fine. Brink agrees, saying it feels like the aliens just stepped out.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:After seeing the [[CameBackWrong effects of the life crystals]], Maggie tells Low not to use one on her if she dies. After she's killed reactivating the Eye, you can use one to bring her back to life, but she commits suicide to stay dead. Later, when the Cocytans bring her back properly, she slaps Low in the face.]]
