This game included a gimmick that makes it of interest to collectors. It's one of the few computer games to come with a VHS tape. On it was the short video Travis Sewerbreath. This was a tongue-in-cheek story of the last Daemon Hunter being interviewed by a reporter. It doesn't really add anything to the game other than a few cheap laughs.
