TriviaThe game was originally developed by Cocktel Vision under the title "Lost in Town" (which later became the subtitle of the game). It was considered to be a part of the "Lost in..." series of the French developer. Unfortunately they were taken over by Sierra during the creation of the game, which changed marketing strategies.
