Trivia

Cut content

There was going to be a Tom Jones model singing and dancing in the Draggin Tale inn, but was cut because they didn't want to pay for the rights to use the song.

Floating structures

Due to an issue with polygon sorting between the terrain and buildings, most of Redguard's structures actually "float" several centimeters above the ground. This is most visible when the player character is shrunk at one point in the game.

Graphics

All the textures were hand drawn.

Windows

Although this game comes with a Windows based installer, it is far from a Windows game. After the installer has completed copying, it will attempt to configure the sound card - yes, it needs good old IRQ, DMA and address settings for a DOS capable sound card. This game is DOS through and through - so it is nearly impossible to run it on Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
