This is a well. You might think that there is something to it... But in fact it is just an ordinary well.
In the original Final Fantasy
for the Nintendo
, this is a quote that appears when your party investigates a well
inside a town. It is actually one of the first quotes you are likely to come to, since when you first start the game, you enter a town and come to a well fairly quickly.
I find the quote wonderfully ironic because the Final Fantasy series (and its offshoots
) would become famous amongst gamers for the labyrinthine characters with names and stories drawn from mythology, and its references to other science fiction
stories and other diverse sources
. Even the first game was, for its time
, considerably more complex. It could have been the game designers
making a joke about the complexity of the game they designed.
Or, it could be, that it was indeed, just a well.
