Trivia

Development for Thandor started in 1996; it was to be a 2D real-time strategy game. By fall 1997, developer Planet4 realized that their game was threatened to go unnoticed in a score of similar RTS titles that were flooding the market at that time. Despite the project's advanced status, it was re-designed from scratch with a 3D engine.

As a cruel irony of fate, Thandor did go quite unnoticed nevertheless.
