Trivia

During the first brainstorm session for the game at LucasArts, a large earthquake hit the Los Angeles area. Many have jokingly described the earthquake as a bad omen of the so-called 'Dig curse': the production of the game was indeed plagued by creative problems, re-writes, changes in management, and the final product was not released until many years after its first conception (although to generally favorable reviews).

athmospheric, moody, simply great.
24 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is the second best computer adventure I've ever played.

With attractive storyline, moody handdrawn graphics and a supportive soundtrack, it keeps you playing till the end. But it is not an easy game to solve. There's one flaw though: the voice-acting. Robert Patrick sounds rather bored when acting Boston Low.
