Trivia for the game Ghana Bwana

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 08:02:13 +0000


The game manual includes a five page comic written by Kerry Gammill. The comic tells the story of the game but also acts as a tutorial on how to play the game and explains what is going on in each level. -- Kabushi (163134)

Trivia for the game Winter Gold

SuperFX Chip Use

The game is interesting because it's one of the handful on SNES that used the SuperFX chip, an additional microchip in the cartridge that boosted the graphical capabilities of the system and allowed a limited use of 3D-polygonal graphics. It also has an impressive intro (by SNES standards) which mixed in-game graphics with polygonized video segments, making it look like a music video.

Actually, it looks a lot like an award-winning Amiga demos called 9 Fingers and State of the Art that also used these type of "polygonal" filters over what looks like a rotoscoped video. And unsurprisingly so - one of the developers, Paul Endresen, is actually the author of those demos, and a member of Spaceballs demogroup that released them. -- Virgil (6122)

Trivia for the game Star Wars: Tiny Death Star

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 03:55:16 +0000

As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

Following Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm, the new owners of the Star Wars franchise pulled the plug on this game in October 2014 after it had been running for only a year, feeling that its tone was inappropriate for the new direction in which they wanted to take the series. -- Pseudo_Intellectual (47891)

Trivia for the game Rez Infinite

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 03:21:46 +0000

Synesthesia Suit

The game's producer, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, created a full-body feedback unit called the Synesthesia Suit for use with Infinite's VR capabilities, allowing the wearer to physically feel vibrations produced in time with their in-game actions. The suit was developed as part of Mizuguchi's research on transmedia projects at Keio University, and its creation fulfilled one of his original ideas for Rez. Although too expensive to be made into a commercial product, the suit was available for members of the media to experience during some of the game's prerelease appearances. -- Harmony♥ (11778)

Trivia for the game Völgarr the Viking

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 02:30:01 +0000

Dreamcast version

The Dreamcast version of the game was released for free - due to the dying Dreamcast platform sales - by developer Crazy Viking Studios: As they couldn't get the game to work themselves, but did not want to let the (external) porting work go to waste, they decided to release the files as-is under a non-commercial license. The license even allows physical distribution, so a limited run of 100 copies of the game disc including manual was produced by the Circuit-Board community. -- Iggi (8729)

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 02:03:27 +0000


The story was loosely based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West by Wu Cheng'en. -- 64er (122)
