Trivia

Voice Recognition

Command: Aces of the Deep was supposed to be the first in a series of "Command" games from Sierra/Dynamix that used voice recognition as a control type. Due to lackluster sales, the idea was scrapped.

Windows 3.1

The minimum requirements on the game box (or some of them) state that the game will run in Windows 3.1, however a printed correction was found inside the box from Sierra claiming that due to the game's advanced features, it is only designed for and will run on Windows 95.
