Trivia

Ending

The game only contains the first half of the planned storyline, which explains why it seems to end in the middle of everything without a proper resolution.

Localization

According to Wolfgang Walk, the original French translation changed the background story significantly: it was about a genocide conducted by US America. They rejected the translation because they had a professional French translator in their studio who noticed the changes

Technology

AquaNox was upon release one of the "killer apps" for the at the time new GeForce3 graphic chipset. It was co-developed with NVIDIA to take advantage of the new features of the NV20 boards which allowed it to be one of the first games (if not the first) to include such effects as caustic reflections and radiosity lighting in a real-time environment.
