** The room "The Tomb of Mad Carew" is a shout out to the first Dizzy game, which featured an area with the same name (which itself comes from the poem 'The Green Eye of the Yellow God' by J. Milton Hayes). The monster here looks like a ghostly version of the Dizzy character himself.

* LampshadeHanging: If you enter the Artificial dimension with Vitellary, at the point where you join up, Vitellary runs through a checkpoint. After he realizes this, he will ask Viridian what it is and suggests they take it back to the ship to study. Viridian replies that it's [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall probably best not to think about it too much.]]
** In the room "Doing Things the Hard Way", which contains [[ThatOnePuzzle the infamous Veni Vidi Vici trinket]], there's a computer terminal which states, "Hah! No one will ever get this one."

** The Gravitron, despite its "Survive for 60 seconds" billing, only requires you to clear those 60 seconds in five second increments.

* BossWarningSiren: The game has a screen named "The Warning". One tunnel, no spikes, ''eight checkpoints in a row.'' It leads into one of the hardest (but thankfully optional) sections of the game.

Find the demo [[http://thelettervsixtim.es/ here]]. Buy the full version [[http://thelettervsixtim.es/ here]] or on [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/70300/ Steam]]. It's also available on the Nintendo3DS [=eShop=], with added 3D effects of course. There's also the [[http://distractionware.com/blog/2014/06/outer-space/ Make and Play edition]], which includes the level editor and several player-made maps, and is free.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: After beating the game, you can go back into the open world and search for any missing logs and trinkets, [[spoiler: which get you the good ending.]] However, you never have to complete already beaten levels again- at any time, going into the main menu allows you to warp back to the ship. This is also useful if some levels are too hard for you, and you want to try them later.
** The game has an invincibility mode for people who simply do not have the skill to beat the game, especially disabled gamers.

* CutSong: [[WordOfGod Word of Soundtrack Composer]] says that "Phear" was originally meant to play during an EasterEgg, but Terry Cavanagh didn't have the time to implement it. There's also a remix of "Predestined Fate" intended for the final level that doesn't kick in for some reason (the PC version plays the original version of the song, not the remix); the latter was fixed for the 3DS release.

* GenreThrowback: Of 80s gaming, particularly on the Commodore 64. Tempers its ridiculously difficult level design with infinite lives and plentiful checkpoints. It's essentially a retro game with modern sensibilities. Similarly, the music is in many ways a reconstruction of the {{Chiptune}} genre, doing a lot of new things with the format.

** For the 3DS version, because it's on a Nintendo console, the room "Whee Sports" had the name changed to "Copyright Infringement". All other versions remain the same.
