** The best theory is that magic and tech are known not to play nicely together and since Klacks is a mage......

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Different example - as one may notice from the picture of the cover box, the game is rated "M", most likely due to the innuendo that Burns and April throw around. However, 15 years later, it's ''significantly'' tamer than what you've come to expect from a game that's rated M.

* VideoGameCaringPotential: April has been named the best developed video game protagonist for a reason.

* HolyShitQuotient: What April finds when she finally enters through the mystery door, the one you can see back in the first chapter but was locked. [[spoiler:It is the old lady who is narrating April's story in the beginning of the game. The nature of this encounter still is matter of speculation for the fans until this day.]]

* {{Narm}}:
** The majority of the character animations looked awkward and [[UncannyValley uncanny valley-ish]] even back when it was new. And they have not aged well... this spells doom for any attempts to pull off dramatic scenes. It's just as well it knows not to take itself too seriously, eh?
** The dark silhouette of young April during her second trial looks distractingly similar to the titular Mysterious Alien Creature from ''Film/MacAndMe''...

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The defeat of [[EvilSorceror Roper Klacks.]] [[spoiler:You hand him an ordinary calculator, he pushes a few buttons, and he's somehow ''sucked into it.'' No explanation for why or how it happens.]] He returns as [[HeelFaceTurn a reformed man]] in ''VideoGame/DreamfallTheLongestJourney'', and the strange anomaly is still never explained.

* NightmareFuel: The "little old lady" you meet in the woods on your way to [[EvilSorcerer Roper Klacks]]. Granted, inbetween her hissing voice, uncanny gait and more LastSecondWordSwap's than you can shake a stick at it was somewhat of a [[ObviouslyEvil foregone conclusion]], but when [[ImAHumanitarian The Gribbler]] does show her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvvnzjYkecU&feature=player_detailpage#t=190s true colours]] it's still [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily utterly disturbing]].
