Trivia

Development and release

Development on the PC version was originally started in 2001, in close cooperation with the French star player Zinedine Zidane and the game was meant to be published by Cryo. After Cryo's liquidation in 2002, the title was cancelled but Trecision got back the rights over the game. The agreement with Zidane was dropped, the title got changed and the game got a limited release in 2003, but not in North America or Western Europe.

In 2004, the full game was bundled for free with various products in Belgium and the Netherlands, such a pack of 25 CD-R's (Dixons - 19 euro) or three movie rentals (Moviemax - 9 euro), as if it was nothing more than a demo cd.
