Trivia

Engine

The 3D engine used for running around the world of Drakkhen was later redeveloped for use in Infogrames' Eternam.

Extras

The game box contained three 3 ½ disks, a booklet titled "How to play", a second booklet which told the background story and contained the magic formulas, a registration card and a tiny code sheet. The code paper consisted of row after row of five letter combinations, which were printed in black on a brownish, dotted background. It was almost illegible without a bright lamp and, preferably, a looking glass. This was a typical form of copy-protection at the time; the dark color combinations resisted photocopying.

Some editions also came with a small pewter fantasy figure, like the ones used for table top role-playing games.

References to the game

Eternam included a parody of Drakkhen at one point in the game.
