When i was 12 I remember the Absolute guys coming to my fathers funeral, I remember playing a number of 'beta' versions of the console games as a kid, and I remember when I first saw 'In memory of Tom Heidt', who was my father, in the credits of a few games that were in development.
I just wanted some place to say thanks, now as an adult, to those who came and comforted me and my family after my father passed away. I will never forget the courtesy shown.

In the 1992 movie "Toys", the game that General Leland Zevo stops to play at the arcade game that contains many graphical similarities to Garry Kitchen's Super Battletank: War in the Gulf (which was never released as an arcade game), though customized to apply to the plot of the movie (for instance Super Battletank does not contain any UN Aid Trucks, or even a score counter). It's interesting to note too that Super Battletank's publisher, Absolute Entertainment was also involved in the videogame adaptations of that same movie, Toys.
