* Novelization: A couple years after the game's release, the game's script-writer Matthew Costello wrote a novelization. Rather than be a direct word-for-word retelling of the game, though, the first dozen chapters delve into the lives and [[DarkandTroubledPast tragic backstories]] of the guests and of Stauf himself.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: [[spoiler:Originally, the events of ‘’The 7th Guest’’ were meant to play out as they happened. However, the limited technology of the day caused ghostly auras to appear around the chroma-keyed actors when the footage was inserted into the game. The dev team ran with it, altering the plot so that the scenes the player character witnesses firsthand are the ghostly afterimages of events that actually occurred several years in the past.]]

* ShoutOut: In the Chapel in ''The 11th Hour'', there's a bowl off to one side with a skeleton in it. Zooming in closer reveals a burned piece of paper with the word [[VideoGame/{{Myst}} "MISSED" written on it, in the exact same font of the referenced game's title.]]

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Carl Denning hasn't a clue what the [=GameBook=] is when he finds it on his doorstep. The prop used in the live action cutscenes is actually a real-life [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_computer pocket computer]], one of the predecessors of [=PDAs=] and cell phones.

Some models even had network connectivity, which could somewhat justify how Samantha is able to reach Carl through it.



* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The first clue to the microscope puzzle reads "This game can be infectious. If your blue blood cells are effective, they should outnumber my green viruses in the end." Most viruses are too small to be seen under a microscope, let alone as large as blood cells. Mutation also has nothing to do with the game; it is likely that they used the word 'mutation' to mean mitosis. However, this is still wrong, as viruses don't replicate via mitosis. All in all, the 'viruses' behave much more like bacteria than actual viruses.
