Gloss on The Sands of Time: Crafting a Video Game Story

The phrase “sadder but wiser” alludes to Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s narrator of “The Rime of the Anicient Mariner.” In the poem, the cursed, albatross-killing sailor tells his story to a wedding guest, and the final stanza of the poem describes the effect of the story on the listener: “He went like one that hath been stunned, / And is of sense forlorn: / A sadder and a wiser man, / He rose the morrow morn.”
