At 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).

From 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.
Initially, 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
