    Andrew Broad has a technical explanation here:
    http://www.geocities.com/andrewbroad...html#attic_bug

    There is nothing much to see. It's just like "infinite death", when you keep
    falling into a room, except that it happens when you just *walk* into
    certain corrupted rooms. Apparently Software Projects initially claimed it
    was an extra difficulty feature involving "poison gas".

    Eq.

    There were two responses to this from Software projects:

    The first was quoted by Alun Maton (sp) from Software projects, who
    said that after entering the Attic, the gaurdians from the Chapel
    would leave their posts and take up position around certain rooms (as
    we know - The Kitchen, West of Kitchen, Cuckoo's Nest and East Wall
    Base) making a direct route back to the master bedroom all the more
    tricky.

    The second (and more official) explanation came about from full colour
    adverts in the computer mags based on the original JSW ad, but with a
    big text overlay explaining that after entering the Attic the above
    rooms were now filled with poison gas, again making a direct return
    difficult - and in fact often impossible.
