Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Dormeuse continually asks Beni what the true purpose of Tomb 35 and its worlds are, dropping vague hints along the way. [[spoiler: He figures out by Argannas that the tombs were designed by the Tastans to get revenge on modern-day humans, since the genetic treatments failed to affect the Tastans and left them to die off.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DurableDeathTrap: Beni knows Tomb 35 is this going in, and believes Dormeuse is a sentry program meant to eliminate intruders. [[spoiler: She reveals towards the end that her ''worlds'' are traps.]]

* TwentyYearsIntoTheFuture: The game takes place in a pastoral Earth 1900 years from the present day.
* SolveTheSoupCans: Each of Dormeuse's worlds are littered with time-consuming, complicated puzzles that often have to be solved multiple times. Beni starts to catch on halfway through that they might just be busywork to keep him distracted.

Added DiffLines:

* ConvectionSchmonvection: One of the worlds, Corabanti, is a series of islands set in an ocean of lava with an ''active'' volcano, but none of it is harmful to Beni.

The most dangerous tombs to explore in the world are the thirty-five Tastan Tombs. The most dangerous of all is Tomb thirty-five, with the only person being able to make it out alive being Ramirez, and he just got lucky. But he told many tales of what he saw inside, like The Sleeping Woman who was laid there.
