1001 Video Games
appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
by General Editor Tony Mott.
The game concept reminds of the cancelled Xbox title FUEL
(previously Everglide Rush
) the studio Firetoad Software
had been working on for five years, until it was eventually canned in early 2007. Firetoad noticed some similarities (next to the title) and merely asked to be included in the credits as inspiration.
