Trivia

Successor

After converting Silkworm to many home computers, Random Access created their own (unofficial) take on the game. This "sequel" is called S.W.I.V., and extended the game and its features. The title officially stood for "Special Weapons Interdiction Vehicle", but the developers later revealed/joked that it meant "IV (4) times better than SilkWorm".
