Quantic Dream was only 22 years old when he was directing this film.
Quantic Dream read several mystical Egypte legends in order to develop the story for the film.
The film is based on the shortfilm Omikron: The Soul Of Nomad (1992) which was directed by Quantic Dream when he was at high school.
All of the actors were amateurs.
The film was shot in the summer of 1996, edited in the next month of August and then released in December 1996.
Because of the mixed, somewhat negative reactions during the release, plans for a sequel (which Quantic had) were cancelled.
In an interview for Heavy Rain (2010), director Quantic Dream said that most filmmakers hate their first feature-length film because it was very sloppy but Quantic Dream he actually still loves to watch it.
