Notes

The game inlay of ARCHON includes a background and photo of the Free Fall development team. Game development is also discussed, as well as what inspired the game concept.


TRIVIA: ARCHON was inspired by developer Jon Freeman's participation as a pawn in a real-life chess match, where people role-played chess pieces in costume and faced-off in mock duels or real fencing battles.
