In some countries, a "censored" CD version was released. One of the slight changes made was the assassination of David Crane. In the floppy and uncensored CD versions of the game, he is naked and having sex with a woman. In the censored CD version, however, he is wearing shorts.
Make no mistake, this game is violent. It also became the focus of attention in '94 because it contained a single sex scene. It was banned for supposed 'sexualised violence' in Australia.
On October 21, 2012 the game was released as freeware download on ScummVM
. There are the floppy version and five different CD versions (UK, US, French, German, Spanish) available for download.
came with a manual called Diary of a Mad? Man
including a diary with the thoughts and rantings of Ryan, the character you play. The diary also plays an important role in completion of the game since there are vital hints in it.
- The second person you have to kill is called Sterling. Bruce Sterling is one of the most famous cyberpunk novel writers.
- The number of Louis' apartment is 42, taken from Douglas Adams' classic The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
- Eden's personal notepad is made by a company called "HAL", an obvious nod to Kubrick and Clarke's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
An audio CD with the soundtrack was released in 95. It contains ten tracks, remixes, based on MODs, which were used in game.
