Trivia

Comic

Considering that the main character design and graphics were done by a host of comic book artists like Les Spink and Greg Staples (of 2000AD fame), Interplay and DC Comics edited a small 12-page novella illustrated with the game's artwork to promote it and introduce the characters and the game premise. The book was published bundled with DC's works at the time and the interesting thing here is that DC signed Vertigo's star Garth Ennis (Preacher, Hellblazer, Hitman, Judge Dredd, etc.) to write it.

German index

On June 29, 1996, Loaded was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.
