Trivia

Cancelled ports

Sword of Sodan was advertised as "coming soon" for both IBM and Apple IIgs, as seen in this ad, but was released for neither format. The version for the Apple IIGS was in development at Visual Concepts, Ltd and only a non-playable demo was released.

Cancelled sequel

Though they never released their promised royalties for Sword of Sodan, Grønbech and Larsen set about making a sequel for Bethesda Softworks. Sword of Sodan 2 was never finished, but a screenshot may be seen in a an old newspaper article.

German index

On April 29, 1989, Sword of Sodan was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.

Message

The first Amiga disk contains the following message from the authors of the game to all potential crackers:

hi, strange place to meet?? i guess it's ok for you to peek around in my boot block, but if you are out to crack this program, may the worst curse be on you forever!
