Q & A – Answered
Hey there, nice page. I for one am a huge fan of the game (see this site and I really enjoyed reading through your stuff.
One thing I stumbled upon is the fact, that the interview with Zach Norman is actually with Sean Vesce. :)
Oh, and maybe you can answer me, what the aliens in the UFO are saying during the cutscene? In exchange I can tell you, that it’s “Oktoberfest”, not Oktober-Fett. It’s an annual Beerfest in Germany and I would never attend it, but hey, it’s famous. :)
Glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the site. Good call on the I ’76 interview. The page has been corrected.
I’ve got no clue what the aliens are saying.
As for Oktoberfest/Oktober Fett, it’s quite possible that I’ve been hearing the name incorrectly for the past decade. Of course, it does make sense that a German-accented character would choose a name after the world-renown festival.
