Untitled[edit]

I don't believe this game was made by atari, maybe published on certian systems but I've played the game several times on the pc and never seen the atari brand logo anyway.
--- Take it back, infogrames, the developer, was bought by atari. Also a version was released on the 3do I believe. My suspicion is confirmed by the picture that clearly displays the 3do logo.
--- Made all these changes.

It was the other way around - Infogrames bought the rights to the Atari image and logo and renamed themselves Atari. I'd be very surprised if what we now call Atari employs anyone who worked at any of the previous hardware or software organisations that went by that name. One bit of confusion remains - I've heard reference to the game actually being developed by a group called I-Motion, but I've never found any details on that entity. If anyone can clear that up, please do.

Mac[edit]

This was also released on the Mac

Lord Boleskine[edit]

I thought Boleskine was an alias of Aleister Crowley, and that's what the book in the game is referring? Which would make sense as a reference to someone immersed in the "occult"...

The book refers to events before the game Shadow of the Comet. It mentions all the things Parker talks about or encounters like the child guide, the sons with the webbed hands, Halley's Comet and the stone circle in the woods. I think the name was just a homage to Aliester Crowley rather it being him, since Boleskin's ghost helps you destroy the portals in the story and has no real desire for the occult itself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kimdealslover (talkcontribs) 13:50, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

spoiler?[edit]

I removed the spoiler tag since it didn't tell you nothing you wouldn't know even before playing the game.

RISC OS[edit]

This game was also released on RISC OS, and I've edited the article to reflect that. How do I know this? Well, I played it on my A3010! 81.159.187.161 (talk) 14:43, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
