Additional info

The backstory is introduced via a comic book (shown on-screen in the introduction sequence of the CD release), drawn by comic artist Dave Gibbons, that tells the story of a young boy called Robert who is the sole survivor of a helicopter crash in "the Gap" (the name applied to the Australian Outback at the time of the game).

In August 2003, the game was released as freeware and support for it was added to ScummVM, allowing it to be played on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Windows CE and other compatible operating systems and platforms.

In some countries (such as the USA), due to copyright issues, the beer label displayed in the introduction is altered to show a generic beer brand in place of the Foster's label. One of the brands read "SS IPM (RAW)", which is "warm piss" spelled backwards.

The first title proposed was Underworld. However it was decided the name too closely resembled Origin Systems game Ultima Underworld.

The game takes place at an unknown point in a dystopian future in Australia, where the Earth has been significantly damaged by pollution or nuclear fallout.
