Easter Eggs - Alien Vs. Predator

The "Lance Lewis" name mentioned for the marine at startup was in honour of
a very dedicated tester at Atari who really went a long way to make the game
the quality it is.

And if you read all the medical and logs on the computers, most of those
have in-jokes based on other developers in the industry. For instance, the
planet "Brabenso" mentioned on one of the logs is a contraction of Brabens
World, as a side joke to David Braben, author of Elite, Frontier and many
space games. The Dr Whittaker, Chief Medical officer, contrary to popular
belief doesnt refer to me, rather my father. I got him to type all that log
text into ascii files for me!

I have a version of the game that I will probably release on AVI at some
time where the predator gets tired chasing you, stops and says "Im tired
from all this running", leans against a wall and starts smoking a cigarette!

Trivia - Alien Vs. Predator

Sound
There a quite a few voiceovers in the game. The Predator voices were derived
from all the predator movies, lifted straight from the movie. The voices for
the marine were used in all the Alien movies and script (not all of them
translated from first script to final movie cut). We used those lines, but
they were spoken by James Grunke, at that time Head of Music and Sound
Effects for Atari.

And to complete the sound effects info :), the alien screams are actually
digitised from Richard Miller's (hardware head at Atari) at that time,
newborn baby!

Development
If I had the hd space of the PC and graphics resolution, oh and the speed
too , then I would maybe have done things differently. What you got in the
Jaguar was literally a cartridge full of game. There was no space left to
add any features or any more graphics. Everything was compressed as far as
it would go and it filled the cartridge, excepting 3 bytes!

I did develop a version with Aliens climbing walls, predator nets etc, but
it just wouldnt fit the cartridge, and at the time I used the biggest
cartridge that was available for the machine. Something had to give, and it
was features such as those, as much to my disappointment as anyone.

However, I hope the game made up for it in atmosphere, gameplay and AI.
