* CreatorsOddball: Uri has stated that ''Pedestal'' is very different from her other games; it's not an ExplorerHorror but more of a mystery/exploration game, and it heavily involves conversing with other characters to uncover information as opposed to the environmental puzzles common in her other games. [[spoiler:It is also the one game that doesn't have a clear-cut happy ending, as the BigBad goes [[KarmaHoudini unpunished]] in every ending while the protagonist is brought to the DespairEventHorizon in the third ending.]]
* DevelopmentHell: ''Pedestal'' was either stuck here or an ExtremelyLengthyCreation; the game was announced in 2014 (''The Sandman'' included a preview) and Uri's website listed it as being in development for several years, with it finally being released seven years later in 2021 (only in Japan, with it taking an entire year for it to be translated and released in December of 2022). Uri released two more games in ''The Strange Men'' series after 2014 and then released updated remakes of her completed games between 2018 and 2020, so it may be she prioritized these games over ''Pedestal''. ''Pedestal'' also features questioning around 100 [=NPCs=] as a major game mechanic, so writing out and implementing all the dialogue was likely time-consuming as well.



* LateExportForYou: ''Pedestal'' was completed in 2021, but hadn't been released outside of Japan until 2022. Uri allowed her translator vgperson to play through the game and potentially translate it, but said they weren't under obligation to do so. vgperson [[https://vgperson.com/games/futureplans.htm stated]] that while they were interested in translating the game into English, they didn't plan on doing it any time soon (if at all) because it's an extremely dialogue-heavy game and so it would be highly time-consuming (Uri also stated that the game's plot is heavily steeped in Japanese culture, to the point it might be confusing to explain things to non-Japanese players).

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Uri originally intended for the ''Insanity'' remake to be her final game, but then decided to complete some projects she'd started working on, including ''Pedestal'', though others were cancelled.
** Uri announced on her website she was working on games titled ''Haname'', ''One Case'' and ''Sudden Illness'' (the last of which she planned to work on after ''Pedestal''), but they've since been removed from her site, so they're presumably no longer in development.
