Particularly interesting was the extremely low level of violence in the game. The player could be hurt only by falling, unfriendly animals, or walking into walls.

It was among the first games that offered a choice of multiple protagonists, as well as a choice of gender, age, race, and beginning level of psychic powers (referred to as "Spirit-skills"). Furthermore, people treated the characters differently based on your choice of avatar.
