Developer commentary about the game
Asked by the magazine ST Format in 1992 about the worst game he has ever written, Jeff Minter
answers with "Photon Storm". He admits the graphics are very small, because he wasn't prepared "to compromise the speed for the graphics" and there was "more stuff" happening on screen. He also misses sampled sound, which would have helped the game a lot in his opinion, but he simply didn't write the routines at that point.
