** Gameplay mechanics are responsible for this one. It's possible to, through the in-game map, see where all the NPCs are at any given moment. At some points during the story the player can see that [[spoiler: George is in the Galaxy of Terror, but is nowhere to be seen once you enter, meaning he's in the bar's secret room, which is opened up later in the game and contains some evidence involving George with the murders.]] Also, [[spoiler:after visiting the Lumber Mill, George claims he is tired and is going home, but he can be spotted wandering around the Greenvale forest at night instead.]]

* SequelHook: Considering the [[spoiler: fact that Willie (who is from the Red World) is still around, and the fact there's more than just one town with red trees]]. Swery has also confirmed he's making a sequel.

* InsufferableGenius[=/=]JurisdictionFriction: York isn't shy about letting rural cops George and Emily know he's a much better detective than them. He lightens up on it a little later on though.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The American cover art makes out the game to be a complete horror gore-fest when it's instead part detective work, part action survival horror.

** While incredibly funny at first, George's logic about going to Velvet Falls to find [[spoiler: lost files that are important to the case]], saying that if they don't find them, they'll become more powerful, becomes more meaningful near the endgame. [[spoiler: George has a very big obsession with "power", due to his mother [[FreudianExcuse beating him with branches when he was younger]].]]

** [[spoiler: There's a jolly fat man amongst the soldiers in Harry's flashback story. His mask doesn't cover enough of his face if you look carefully, and there's a potted sapling on a crate nearby. This is before he's properly revealed during the original Raincoat Killer sequence.]]

* GuideDangIt: If you start "A Snack for Willie" (which can be done without even intending to) without all seven bones, you only get a regular item, as opposed to [[spoiler:an infinite-ammo .357 magnum]]. The game gives you absolutely no reason to suspect this to be the case before or after the fact, making it easy for this item to end up LostForever.

You get only one save file per game and reverting to an earlier chapter doesn't help, so it's permanent as soon as you save unless you restart completely.



* InnocentInaccurate: The Ingram twins, not quite grasping the concept of death, believe that Anna has become a goddess of the woods.
** [[spoiler:Subverted in that the victims have in fact become "goddesses of the forest", as the twins can see them in the forest (along with York) during the epilogue]].
* InsistentTerminology: The men of the Morgan family seem to identify mainly by their middle name, since not only is York rarely called Francis, his father Brian Xander Morgan is mostly known as Xander (and even calls his son by his middle name).
