* AwesomeMusic: The 5 songs from the sequel's fictional band, Trip Cyclone.
* HellIsThatNoise: The music was one of the scariest parts of the game. The second game also uses some highly questionable noises as music for several locations.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUBC5xB8FfU&feature=endscreen&NR=1 The music that plays whenever you are near an ixupi.]]
** ContinuityNod: In fact, some of those noises reproduce the melodies of several tunes from the first game, or ARE tunes from the first game after having been worked over with a sledgehammer. This might be FridgeHorror for players of the first game.
* NightmareFuel: The entire game - surprisingly effective for a point-and-click adventure rather than more traditional action-oriented SurvivalHorror. The realisation of what you're about to find in the hollow lion [[spoiler:(it's Merrick's body)]] as you stand directly in front of it reading the final diary entry is a good example; as is the music, particularly the track which incorporates a woman's anguished screams and her repeated cries of "Help me!" into the score.
** The sequel is just as scary, if not worse. Instead of a museum, you're in an abandoned ''town'', with the only other person in the area is Darkcloud, the game's main antagonist.
* TearJerker: The story behind [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9e_uIgzxqIs Anansi The Spider]]. Windlenot was so enamored with the tune when he first heard it, that he decided to make the music box for his son Geoffrey.
