Trivia

Cancelled port

Atari was working on a port for their Jaguar CD, but cancelled it.

Development

The movie sequences were all rendered on 486 DX/2 66 [Mhz] workstations, which marked high end computing power at the time of development.

Manual

The game's manual had its own ideas of what useful tips can be:
"For maximum atmosphere turn down the lights and use headphones instead of speakers."

Localization

The German localization features the voice of Rolf Schult as the player's briefing officer and narrator in the intro sequence. At the time Creature Shock was released that specific voice had been especially renowned as the German dubbing voice of actor Patrick Stewart in his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series Star Trek: TNG who in turn sports a similar hairdo like the briefing officer.

Though the original multi language UK DOS release features no credits of any particular voice talent.
