Trivia

Cancelled Amiga version

A demo was released of the Commodore Amiga version but the full game was never released for the Amiga. It was to be published by Mirage. Amiga Action magazine actually spent several months identifying the game as finished, and listing it as one of the Amiga's top 20 adventures. No wonder they had such a bad reputation for reviewing unfinished games.
