Chapter 3 - Aboard the Yacht

[The yacht plans are different in almost every respect from the maps elsewhere. They use images exclusively rather than words, replace the player's @ sign with a yellow you-are-here star, and portray close-up details (such as beds and even toilets) that wouldn't even be hinted at in the main game area.

The design aims for the yacht plans are:

-- to convey the scope and concept of the yacht almost instantly, because the player will have relatively little time to explore

-- to make it clear that we're in a different sort of environment -- metaphysically different, even -- from Atlantis, and to suggest movement away from Atlantis (the bottom half of the screen is Bureau blue, the top half black)

-- to establish the claustrophobic self-containment of this little world

-- to keep rewarding the player with slightly surprising new visuals even at the end of the game

-- at the same time, to present an image whose colors and crisp design sensibilities do line up with those of the earlier maps]
