Misc. Notes

  • Fetch quests within fetch quests

  • Fluent in Wankese (Sandy)
  • Pretentious text overlays
  • And now for someone completely different! (the multiple viewpoint switches between Ruley and Hamlet)
  • Old English (much of Hamlet's dialogue)
  • Infuriating camera angles
  • Comic-relief character with hidden depths (TikTok)
  • Deceptively-deadly enemy (Toxic Flies. Ugh)
  • Filler dungeons
  • The Trappings of Traps (Kyria is full of them)
  • Random accent (the Australian parrot in Kyria)
  • Ineffectual bodyguard (Kahn the Crack Addict)
  • Speaking in the third person (TikTok)
  • Evil Empire
  • Contrived coincidences ("Oh, are you the aqueduct repairmen? Come on in!")
