Trivia

  • During early development, the Killers were always able to choose whether to sacrifice or kill the Survivors.
    • That base mechanic gave the Killer too much of an advantage, thus it was scrapped and replaced with the Memento Moris Offerings.
  • "Memento Mori" is a Latin saying, which translates to "Remember Death/Remember Mortality". It is intended to remind humans of their mortality and the inevitable closure of death.
  • The Memento Moris of The Nurse Nurse}}, in which she chokes the Survivor to death, is a direct reference to her Lore and the occurrences at the Crotus Prenn Asylum.
