ReferencesThere are some puns and references in the game that require trying out certain things:
- When typing "ask about bird" when speaking to the village idiot, he'll talk about Larry Bird instead.
- When visiting the kraken, typing "ask about kraken" will cause him to give a familiar Muhammad Ali quote.
- Eating food as an owl or turtle will give a message about "Purina (the animal you've turned in to)-chow".
- Typing "look at woman" when in the underground chamber.
- After killing the boar, trying to pull the tusk out of the boar's mouth.
