There ware several references to the number twenty-one (21) in Dear Esther:

- the number of times the narrator drove the M5 motorway, looking for signs of the accident.

- the number of miles between the Sandford junction (which incidentally is No.21 on the M5) and the narrator's home.

- the number of days that passed before Donnelly's body was opened up by medical students.

- the number of minutes the narrator watches the aircraft vapour trails.

- the number of paper boats that split up into the ocean.

- the number of connections in the circuit diagram of the anti-lock brakes.

- the number of species of gull on the island.

Did you find any more?

Traditionally it is the age of consent, but I doubt if that is directly relevant here.
