The lead writer on the game was Meg Jayanth, who authored most of the half-million word game script, and filled the world with crazy inventions, fantastic settings and best of all, living breathing human beings. The lead artist was Jaume Fabregat from Catalonia, whose incredible imagination and skilled pen brought Meg’s inventions to glorious life. The memorable theme tune was composed by Laurence Chapman, whose previous music credits include TV and short film work.
