Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The message "Oh conch you see, you belong to me... I'll be watching you." is a reference to the song Every Breath You Take by The Police.
- There is a glitch, where walking/running animation can be stopped when the key bound to the large shell is used during the animation. Doing so will teleport the player a short distance if the player is set to move far enough. This glitch has not been fixed. It can be replicated by holding down the key bound to the shell while running or walking.
- Multiple shells may be obtained by completing Sandy Clue Scrolls.
