* NoBudget: Initially, this game was produced on a shoestring budget of $1 million. Only one professional actor was invited (and only the attract mode gives him showtime as a narrator), while the others have been voiced by the animators themselves; Dirk, for instance, was voiced by Dan Molina, the film editor, who in turn would later do the sounds for [[Disney/ChickenLittle Fish Out of Water]], and Daphne's voice originally belonged to Vera Lanpher, who was the head of the clean-up department. All the staff's soul they have put into the development, however, paid off magnificently.

* DevelopmentHell: Production on ''Dragon's Lair II'' started in 1983, but TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 caused Cinematronics to freeze royalties to DonBluth's animation studio, driving them into bankruptcy and shelving the project for years before its eventual completion and release in 1991.
