Looking above the closet

In the game's resource file, there is a reference to King's Quest 3 in text032, which refers to Larry's cabin on the cruise ship. The text reads: "You feel nothing but dust. (But remember this if you ever play King's Quest III.)"

It refers to the cupboard in Larry's cabin. In King's Quest 3, Gwydion looks on the top of a cupboard to find a small key - hence the reference. Unfortunately we have not yet been able to trigger this Easter Egg in Larry 2 as it appears this line of text as not linked to any command. If you do know the command that triggers it, please let us know!

The language of creatures and wings of an eagle or a fly are clearly references to King's Quest 3 where Gwydion (prince Alexander) escapes from the wizard Manannan by making these specific potions.
