Debugging codeSimilar to Spellcasting 101's 'gwcheat' cheat, Timequest has some debugging code (zmem, zget, etc), 'zget' allows you to take any item in the game, it can however mess up the interpreter if you 'zget player'.
European releaseThe European 5,25'' version of Timequest has a different screenshot on the upper right of the back cover. While the US version features a screenshot of Mussolini and Hitler with the caption "Rome 1940 Deceive Mussolini and Hitler into thinking England has surrendered" the European version has a screenshot showing Winston Churchill and the caption says "Dover 1940 Give Churchill time to evacuate the troops at Dunkirk".
Also the 3.5" Disks of the European release show version number 1.1 instead of version 1.0 (US release).
ReferencesThe name of the villain in Timequest (Zeke S. Vettenmyer) is an anagram of "Steven E. Meretzky", Legend co-founder and author of the Spellcasting series.
Steve MeretzkyOne of the listed play testers is none other than Steve Meretzky (author of Legend's Spellcasting series) himself.
