ChoirAt a certain point of the game, you are in a church and there's a choir singing the "Ave Maria" song. If the game detects that you are using a pirated version of the game, instead of Ave Maria the choir begins to sing "Pirata! Pirata!" ("Pirate! Pirate!" in Spanish). A video can be found here.
Ports and remakesFrom 2000 onwards, remakes for PC and MSX2 computers have appeared. The PC remake was developed by Antonio Giner in 2004 and runs on Windows computers. The MSX2 remake was developed by Armando Pérez and Manuel Pazos. It can be run under MSX emulators and has an English version. Both remakes feature revamped graphics and sound.
Even though Opera Soft ported most of their games to the Amstrad PCW, they never did so with Abadía del crimen. This has now been corrected by PCW enthusiasts.
TitleInitially, this game was thought to be called El Nombre de la Rosa, just like the Spanish title of the Umberto Eco novel on which this program is based, but due to problems in the communication with Umberto (there was no response in three months even though there were several attempts), it had to be called La Abadía del Crimen.
