Ophelia is a famous painting by British artist Sir John Everett Millais which represents the character from Hamlet in the act of drowning herself. It is shown as a poster beside the entrance in Sam's room.
Despite being published in 2001, McEwan's novel, Atonement, can be found on Terrence Greenbriar's bookshelves. This was added as a parallel between the plot of the game and that of McEwan's novel. Several similarities include:
- Both Briony and Sam have a talent for writing, they live with their parents and have an older sister.
- Briony like Sam refuses to follow a higher education.
- Robbie is enlisted in the army like Lonnie.
- Sam writes on the SexEd assignment a bad romance set in the WWII where the man dies, exactly as in Atonement.
- There is an abuse like the one between Oscar and Terrence.
- The theme of remorse is central to Oscar's character as to Briony.
