Trivia

CD-ROM version

In 1992 the game was released on CD with multiple languages and speech output. Various scenes were censored in that version, e.g. the shower scene in the bedroom of the hotel (left out); the underwear shots in the magazine in the hotel lobby (replaced by car pictures); the rear view of Doralice in the mirror at the lingerie shop (left out); the pin-up posters in the storeroom of the lingerie shop (nudity covered) and the buttocks of Kenneth in Villa Molière (covered, except for the pop-up).

Intersound MDO

The DOS version of the game offers support for the Intersound MDO, a sound device distributed by Coktel Vision themselves which is also mentioned on the game manual. The device is likely a custom version of the Covox Speech Thing. Only a small group of games (around ten, mostly made by Tomahawk / Coktel Vision) support this device.

Development

It's interesting to note that despite the game's sexual nature (which could be deemed by some as 'sexist') this game was actually created by a woman!

Music

Frederic Motte (author of game music):

The programmers at Coktel Vision couldn't play ".MOD" files on the PC back then, so they just sampled the AMIGA "MOD" and played short loops of it :P I know, pretty pathetic :P but it's the same piece of music anyway.
