Trivia / The ClueFinders

  • Dawson Casting: Averted; actual kids perform the voices of the kids. At least at first.
  • Fan Nickname: Because nearly every game package (and even the main page image!) shows Joni as pointing toward something, some people refer to her as "the pointing girl."
  • Role Association: Alistair Loveless is played by the iconic voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, using a voice similar to Waluigi. Pericles Lear, also voiced by Martinet, is basically an evil Mario, minus the Italian accent.
  • Orphaned Reference: At one point in 6th Grade, there's a Cutscene in which Leslie and Owen see a friend of theirs being taken prisoner and notice that he's starting to turn into a plant. If you click on Leslie and Owen after this scene plays, they will talk about something completely different as though that was what they just witnessed. From the sound of it, it appears that point in the game originally had a Cutscene in which the plants were abusing human slaves, but it was cut (for being too dark?) and replaced, but they never got around to changing Leslie and Owen's in-game dialogue. Another artifact is that the symbol for the location where this takes place appears to be a ball and chain, which makes no sense in the released version of the game.
