Quoted from rosh:

He did it only one time, and no one is quite sure how he did it.

Houdini hid the elephant more than once and we know how he did it. There is a wonderful book by Jim Steinmeyer called "Hiding the Elephant" which goes over all of the great advances in magic from the Black Art principle to Pepper's Ghost (which is used in Ghostbusters) to Houdini's elephant vanish. Houdini desperately wanted to be respected among his peers as one of the greatest magicians but his fan base just wanted to see the escapes. Houdini was crushed that the elephant illusion was not as well received by the public as he'd hoped.

Congrats on the game AP! I'm a huge fan of the history of magic so this is my theme. If you want a little constructive feedback, the previous artwork on the backglass was freaking amazing. The new backglass art is ok but I am a bit disappointed. I think Harry needs to be on the backglass. Best of luck.

I previously posted a congrats and made a comment that I was disappointed with the backglass art. After watching more of the videos I have to say that the backglass theater concept is brilliant. I'm getting more excited by this title.
