Trivia

Just before Hasbro's video game system NEMO was about to be officially launched alongside Sewer Shark and Night Trap (1992) at the start of 1989, the worst happened - Hasbro pulled the plug (citing the high cost of the hardware). Tom Zito, General Manager of Hasbro Interactive's California based unit, then purchased all of the material related to the two abandoned games and founded his own company, called Digital Pictures.

John Dykstra's Sewer Shark
18 February 2015 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

This video game is one of my favorite. I love the Sega CD and 3DO, and I hate majority modern games with pixel characters and interiors.

The story and game-play in the atmosphere is very reminiscent of the movie "Moon 44" and some moments from the original "Star Wars". A robot named Catfish, which helps you to determine the direction of flight in a futuristic collectors, is very similar to a mixture of C3PO and Control from "Hard Time on Planet Earth".

The acting is very good, especially David Underwood in the role of your commander named Ghost and the voice of Catfish, Robert Weaver. But the game-play is also great, it is not just computer graphics, this is special photographic concept, real special photographic animation, like in real sci-fi movies. Because the director of this interactive movie was maestro John Dykstra - special photographic effects supervisor of Star Wars, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and as producer creator of Battlestar Galactica(pilot film), also second unit director on "Invaders from Mars".

The first time I played the original version of the game for Sega CD. Now I mostly play 3DO version(1994), in this version better image(almost fullscreen) and during the game-play another music, better in sound quality and more dynamic music than on the Sega CD. Anyway, I love both versions of this game.

It was quite possible to shoot additional scenes and combining it with the game-play to mount a full-fledged feature film.

For its time it was incredible! A huge thanks to Rob Fulop, Ken Melville, Tom Zito and to all employees of Digital Pictures, for such great games they made in the 1990s for us. 10 out of 10!
