When Cyberdreams approached Ellison about creating a work of interactive literature, he was intrigued by the challenge of taking on one of the few media for which he had never before written. No fan of conventional computer games, Ellison wanted to create an adventure that would enrich players even as they are challenged by the storyline and fantastic concepts that move the characters, coming away as sharper-edged human beings than when they began.

As the game approached a playable "alpha" state, Ellison and Mullich spent many hours together fine-tuning the scenarios and polishing the dialogue. Ellison would place his manual typewriter alongside Mullich’s computer on the author’s kitchen table, and as Mullich play-tested the adventure, Ellison typed story enhancements at his usual 120 words a minute.

The French and German releases were partially censored. The game was forbidden to players younger than eighteen years.
