Easter Egg
Entering the word "burger" into the parser causes instant death for the character. This is a nod to the game's programmer, "Burger" Bill Heineman, who was known to keep old fast-food burgers stashed in various desk drawers.

The "Tass" Word's Meaning
"Muffy and I were employed there [at Harvard], teaching creative writing. And the motto of Harvard is 'Veritas,' which means 'truth.' We took to saying 'very tass' to mean, 'very true,' or 'too true.' Our students picked it up and started applying it to something that was cool. So very tass turned into very hip or cool."

Michael Berlyn, "TTiTT" game designer, 1999.

Ennio: The Legend Begins
"On the main supporting character: "The game's original title (working title) was 'Ennio: The Legend Begins,' which refers to the dog in the game. Ennio, the heroic dog in the game, was based on a dog in our neighborhood, MacGregor. We called the character Ennio after the film composer Ennio Morricone. We liked the name so we used it. Right after the game shipped, we went out and bought a little dog, a Lakeland Terrier, and named him 'Ennio the Legend.' Ennio was a great companion and a great dog with a tremendous sense of humor who passed away last year."

Michael Berlyn, "TTiTT" game designer, 1999.
