Crash magazine ran a series of articles in around 87/88 about Raffaele Cecco
, who was then writing Cybernoid II: The Revenge
.. He wrote a "diary" of the process involved in creating a game and accompanying one of these diaries was a photo of his girlfriend named Suryani. As he had also been one of the team involved in writing Equinox
some time earlier it can be assumed that the name of the planet in this game was a compliment to her.
