Creator's comment

The Moon card can mean uneasiness, distrust of inconsistency. I thought that the personality of Vincent, who does not speak plainly to others and makes them uneasy, was applicable to "the moon" so I included this card into the game

  • The Moon is card XVIII in the major arcana portion of most standard tarot decks.
  • According to the Book of Lost Memories, the "Moon" is representative of Vincent Smith and his ulterior motives behind helping Heather. The card is also found in the same room that Heather has her second-to-last discussion with Vincent, and the cutscene is actually triggered by picking up the tarot card.
