Origins of 'series'Teenage friends Enrique Cervera and Emilio Pablo Salgueiro Torrado were developing platform games simultaneously at the age of fifteen, and sent them to Dinamic together. The company decided to exploit the similarity of the two games and release them as a series. Enrique's ghost-themed game was closer to being finished, so Emilio's was changed from its original thief theme to be a sequel to Phantomas. Torrado's later title Dustin saw him finally write a thief-based game.
