    In the beginning, when you leave your room and enter the one down the hall left of you, you will find the couple from the trailer, dead, of course. It's unsure why the man didn't turn, as he was bitten by his daughter, which is nowhere to be seen.

    Beer machines all over Banoi, especially found in bars on the first map, have the trademark "Heineken" logo on them, but instead read "Dead Islander".

    You can find packets of tobacco scattered around the floor (many are located where you have to find flares in Act I) that are clearly modelled after Golden Virginia brand rolling tobacco.

    In some places women can be heard speaking in Polish. They pray a "Hail Mary" prayer: "Zdrowaś Maryjo, łaski pełna, Pan z tobą, błogosławionaś ty między niewiastami i błogosławiony owoc żywota twojego, Jezus. Święta Maryjo, matko boża, módl się za nami grzesznymi teraz i w godzinę śmierci naszej. Amen."
    A copy of "Fakt", the largest Polish tabloid, can be found in Act I. Headline on front page says: "Ile ofiar zbierze zaraza?" ("How many victims will gather the plague?")
