* AlternateUniverse: The game takes place in a separate continuity from the anime and features a completely different plot.
* AmbiguousDisorder: It's even more pronounced due to Lain's {{Creepy Child}} factor being ramped up. Lain's therapist lists her as having multiple mental disorders.
* BloodierAndGorier: The anime is relatively tame on its gore. This game? Not so much. It has a lot of blood and dead bodies. [[spoiler:Lain slashes her throat, kills her therapist, beats up her dad's half-finished android, and ultimately shoots herself]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: It's more grim and graphic than the anime.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Lain]] shoots herself in the end. Played with in that [[spoiler:she possibly only killed her physical body]].
* TheHeroDies: Lain dies [[spoiler:by shooting herself]].
* ReplacementGoldfish: After Lain's parents divorce, Lain creates an AI replica of her father. [[spoiler:She later tries to make a physical android in which to place the AI]].
* SelfHarm: At one point Lain smashes a mirror and sinks a piece of glass into her neck.

''Serial Experiments Lain'' is a video game based off the [[Anime/SerialExperimentsLain anime of the same name]]. It was released on the UsefulNotes/{{Playstation}} in 1998.

The game takes place in an alternate reality from the series and features a cast of new characters, however it shares similar themes to the anime.

''Serial Experiments Lain'' was released shortly after the conclusion of the anime and developed concurrently. Calling it a "game" may be a bit of a stretch, and the creators actually define it as "psychostretchware". Instead of actual gameplay, it acts more as an interface to access parts of Lain's story, presenting a multimedia experience that includes video, diary excerpts, and notes from Lain's therapist. Although it has yet to receive an English version, officially or unofficially, [[http://psx.lain.pl/ some fans have translated it]] and put it into a PDF format, available to download.
