* FlipFlopOfGod: Are the "Other World" encounters actually happening, or are they just in York's head [[spoiler: (and Emily's)]]? Not surprisingly, SWERY's been asked this question in multiple interviews... and he's answered in the affirmative to ''both possibilities.'' Taking all the interviews into account, the answer seems to be something along the lines of, "The [[NotUsingTheZWord shadows]] represent malevolent spirits, so their encounters are mostly mental, but because [[YourMindMakesItReal mental states can have a physical effect on people]], they can be fought off in a physical sense and can have a physical effect on people by affecting their state of mind." [[MindScrew Or something like that.]]
* LetsPlay: Two done in GiantBomb's Endurance Runs running concurrent to each other, an abandoned one from WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment, one by [[SomethingAwful SA]] member {{supergreatfriend}}, one by WebVideo/VideoGamesAwesome and one of the Director's Cut by WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay.
* The way side missions are handled in gameplay is similar to the missions you get in the Tomba games. This is because Swery65 and many of the developers for VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition used to worked on the Tomba games. So in a sense, VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition is a SpiritualSuccessor to the {{Tomba}} games.
* HeyItsThatVoice: {{Seaman}} is a detective solving crimes... that explains so much.
* TroubledProduction: Many, ''many'' websites noted the game's resemblance to ''TwinPeaks'', and the developers noticed this, so they redesigned aspects such as the characters and rerecorded the lines for the characters.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** York's original name was David Young Henning and he also bore more than a passing resemblance to [[TwinPeaks Dale Cooper]], the Red Room actually did look more like a "Red Room" with the twin angels being shorter and more elderly, George had a slightly more elderly appearance with less facial hair, and the song "Miss Stiletto Heels" may not have existed in the original version, with the song "Pillow Stain" in its place, which can easily be found in the game in the sound test. The title was also originally "Rainy Woods". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EbbhwO7pRHA The Trailer can be seen here]].
** The ability to hide in dumpsters suggests you were to hide from the enemies, rather than fight most of them head on. You can see this in most of the Raincoat Killer segments. Which possibly links up the fact that the combat aspect of the game wasn't originally present and was added early in development to keep the publishers happy. Maybe the game would have been more stealth orientated.
