Trivia

The game has a very cunningly concealed secret that only a dedicated fan would find. There is a collection of HTML files on the CD that serves as the game's readme. After a user has been browsing these files for a certain amount of time, a script causes a previously hidden link to appear. This link takes the viewer to a hidden page buried deep in the game's subfolders where you can read diary entries written by a teenager whose parents were killed by the Mykonians, as well as some decidedly nasty nursery rhymes and a few other snippets of information.
