* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The municipality of Alivieska, which the game takes place in, doesn't exist. While there is a municipality called ''Y''livieska in Finland, the setting looks like it could be based on any rural part of Finland in general.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The subtitles tend to be extremely literal when it comes to translations, which is particularly notable with the swears your character can utter - while completely valid [[PrecisionFStrike F-Strikes]] in Finnish, when translated literally into English they tend to sound [[{{Angrish}} somewhat nonsensical.]] Another example is the "macaron box" that you can buy, which is actually just what [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaroni_casserole macaroni casserole]] is literally called in Finnish.

* HollywoodDarkness: Averted - doing anything at night without a light source is impossible. If you find yourself in your house past nightfall without the lights on, pray you manage to randomly find a lightswitch or the bed before you die of exhaustion.
