Trivia

Inspiration

The game was heavily inspired by the 1988 movie Waxwork, set in a wax museum where visitors get sucked into horror-themed exhibits. Michael Woodroffe stated this in a 1992 pre-release interview (Zero, February 1992, page 55):
Waxworks, which we're doing with Accolade, is based on the film of the same name. Well, not 'based' so much, inspired really. It's inspired by the film.
Further reinforcing the movie connection, in the same interview Woodroffe stated that the game was going to include a swordfight with Marquis de Sade (something that didn't make it into the finished game). Such a scene appears in the 1988 film.
