The Press Says
Much of the art in this game (and on the cover) are by Chris Moore
. He's got an art book called JourneyMan: The Art of Chris Moore
out that includes a few of the illustrations used in the game.
The game is (surprise) based on the Heechee trilogy
series of books written by Frederik Pohl, first of which is accordingly titled Gateway
For a time, the game was available as freeware from Legend's website.
The Heechee numbers used in the game are the same that are used by the Predator in the movie by the same name.
