In the cyberpunk future of 2021, data courier Johnny Mnemonic can carry digital payloads in his head by encoding them as memorable sentences.

For example, 1011010110111001 becomes OZma Of OZ's Old Zamboni OOZes Oil On OZZy Osbourne.

Finder Icon

In the unlikely case of this FMV game's icon being viewed on a 1-bit monochrome screen, it will depict a different image:

Developer Credits

PICT resource 2000 is an inaccessible credit screen for the CineACTIVE technology.

What is this? An about box for ants?!    There's also a thumbnail of this image occupying the custom icon slot, but the custom icon flag isn't set so it stays unused.

An alternative main menu, lacking the Load, Disc 2, and Credits buttons.

This last dialog must have let the tester and/or virtual gamer skip the puzzle of assembling a working data rig.
