The game was originally developed with multiplayer in mind, but in the end it turned out to be more of a single-player experience. Still, even in 2008 the development team is regularly asked about a mysterious patch that would enable multiplayer in the game. In an article on his site on 8th October 2008 Julian Widdows
wrote that for three months the patch was being worked on, but never released. During the years some programmers of the team have tried to get it working in their spare time, but Widdows says since it never came together completely and ownership is a grey area, the patch is best considered a mystery box, left unopened.
