Trivia

Cancelled series

The UK version of the game was subtitled Volume 1 - The Dawning, as indeed, there were more chapters planned. They never materialised.

Extras

The UK version came in a box which was designed to look like an epic tome. The box consisted of an outer cover, with the actual box inside.

There were lots of goodies inside that box, too: A code-wheel (well, OK, so that's not really a goodie), a copy of The Mitteldorf Times, a letter from your cousin Sven, a large town map, an A2-sized poster showing the inner box art and a couple of special offers:
  • Special offer 1: 'Digitise your face - Star in your own adventure!' - SIf you sent a photo of yourself to the developers, together with a small fee, they would scan your face in and send a disk back to you with an image file that you could use in the game.
  • Special offer 2: Competition! There was a lost, or imprisoned, King somewhere in the game, and the first person to find him, take a screenshot and send it to the developers would win some kind of marvellous prize.

References

Several UK magazine editors got their faces digitized to the game. The game appeared to get better reviews in the UK than elsewhere, perhaps as a result.
