Starquake Trivia (Commodore 64)
PC diskThe PC release was actually a "flippy" disk: The PC version was on the front side, and the Commodore 64 version was on the reverse side.
References to the gameAn advertising poster for the game can be seen in the background in the sitcom The IT Crowd, which is set in the IT department of a big business.
Starquake IIOriginal developer Stephen Crow worked for a short time on a sequel, but never finished it. As in 2014 Mark R. Jones sorted his disk archive, he rediscovered some of his work for Ocean, including the work on Starquake II for the Atari ST. These early game versions dated in 1992, with code by Paul Hughes and the graphics by Mark R. Jones. Three different versions were found, with title screen, intro, some partly playable, but the game itself was never brought into a finished product. The preserved versions can be found on Atarimania.
