1. Corn?

Corn might have been there, but not in corn-on-the-cob form. If it existed, it would have been as a crude kind of cornmeal. thumbsup

The one I was thinking of was Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

2. The five parts of dramatic structure: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and dénouement. The pyramid is formed by the rising action going up one side of the pyramid, to the climax at the apex of the pyramid and the falling action down the other side.

I wonder if this analysis would apply to adventure games. grin
