Trivia

Certificate

The box contained a certificate "For bravely adventuring through Castle Wulf and defeating The Necromancer". If you filled in your name and the message from the end of the game, and sent it to The Bitmap Brothers per mail, the certificate would be approved and stamped.

Sales

Cadaver is the acclaimed developer’s first attempt of a puzzle-oriented game. It isn’t very surprising that it’s also been their last attempt: it was no commercial success.

Saving

To save your game, you had to pay a price: Some of the coins you collected along the way were subtracted. The required amount rose with each subsequent save. Thus, you had better think twice before investing your precious coins.

Title translation

"Cadaver" is Spanish for "Corpse".
