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).

User Reviews

Not too bad. Lacked humor but had reason for that.
7 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I felt this game was not bad. The game had a great plot and made you feel like what you were doing was going to SERIOUSLY mess you up if you messed up. It lacked humor but I felt that was to highlight the seriousness of your current situation. My only complaint was that some of the voice acting was rather bland. Mainly Robert Patrick and Mari Weiss. It was like they were just reading their scripts and felt this was below their talents.
