Earwax Era: 1200
Pickup Type: Unknown, possibly power up

Intended to protect you from the effects of the Siren, a cut enemy, along with lowering the games volume.



The earwax is a pickup item that was cut from the final version of Daikatana. It was intended to be in era 1200.

The model was implemented in the pre-alpha, however the effects were not coded as the Siren was not added, and the only reference to the items effects are in an early design document from John Romero himself.

A unique feature was that this item was going to have permanent use - insisting that it could be used for a short time with a cooldown, and was probably stored in the players inventory.
