YMMV: Shivers
  • Hell Is That Noise: 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.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The entire game - surprisingly effective for a point-and-click adventure rather than more traditional action-oriented Survival Horror. The realisation of what you're about to find in the hollow lion (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.
  • Tear Jerker: The story behind 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.
    "Alas, I never gave it to him."
