  • Carl's house was based on a real house.[2]
  • Carl has two large origami birds on one of the bookshelves near his dining table. This is likely a reference to Heavy Rain.
  • The brand name of Carl's piano is Quantic, which is a reference to the game company (Quantic Dream).
  • A painting of Carl displayed next to his dining table can also be seen in Kamski's house next to his pool.
  • Though the bathroom is inaccessible in the game, a YouTuber by the name of Shesez was able to use a camera that enables him to move around through walls to view anything that happens outside the view of the player to fully view the bathroom. It is fully detailed and even has a closet with books and clothes in it that wasn't seen in the concept art. It is currently unknown if the bathroom was meant to be explorable at some point in development.
