Retro gamer collector's corner:

Each package of Cutthroats contained the following feelies:

  • True Tales of Adventure, a fictional magazine catering to self-styled adventurers
  • Four Shipwrecks off Hardscrabble Island, a fictional book "published" by the Hardscrabble Harbor Historical Society with information on the wrecks of São Vera, H.M.S. Intrangisent, The Fianna and S.S. Leviathan.
  • A dive map indicating the locations and depths of the above four ships
  • A "supplemental price list" from Outfitters International featuring a tide table. As the equipment available does not appear in list form or in any other reference within the game, the player requires the price list packaged with the game for a successful dive.
