Trivia

No one on the production team knew anything about trains, so they found one of the last remaining sleeping cars of the type that the Orient Express used, took photographs of it, and meticulously recreated the entire train in pre-rendered 3D images.

To create the "art nouveau" animation style effect the production team was looking for, all of the game's possible paths and actions (over 800 scenes) were filmed with 50 live actors wearing special makeup against a bluescreen. The footage was then input into a computer and, using a specially designed process, was processed and turned into black and white line drawings. From there, the footage was meticulously hand painted frame by frame (over 40,000 frames total) to create the final effect.

Most of the game is set in real time. An hour of real time is an hour of game time. The game begins at 7:14 p.m. on July 24th, 1914, and ends at 7:30 p.m. on July 27th (if played correctly).
