Trivia

Before entering the door to the first tram platform, Boston Low jokes that there may be a mad scientist with a pretty girl and a talking robot on the other side. This is a reference to the classic science fiction movie Forbidden Planet (1956), which is also about a couple of astronauts arriving on a planet full of technology from a society that has long since died out (and where they indeed find a deranged professor and his pretty daughter). Forbidden Planet was one of the main inspirations for the game. See more »

Quotes

Boston Low: [after both Robins and Brink have left him] I'm beginning to take this personally. Nobody wants to stay with me. Maybe it's my deodorant. I think it failed somewhere back there on Attila.

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.
