Release notes
=============================================================================

Blitz Games left the source code of their game Chicken Run in a Dreamcast Dev Kit HDD that ended up in the hands of a collector. This collector has been kind enough to share this source code with us.

The code is full of developers' comments scattered through various files. Some of these comments are just technical:

// Unlike Glover. in Chicken Run there's no puzzle parsing code. It's all ready-converted
// into puzzle structures with PSX coordinates in the BFF file.


Others are hilarious:

// No sample has been specified for sound_trigger (STUPID ARTIST)

And there's also way for more personal ones:

// Well this now works there was me thinking I might be given something with senceable
// values but no but thats ok as the powers that be can just ask you to work for free
// to make up for all the shite god I'm so tempted to just walk out of this shitty
// company if it was'nt for the rest of the guys i'd have gone ages ago!


There's plenty more comments to be read inside the files. They will give you an idea of how a game is structured and made and all the headaches it can cause.

Not everyday one gets the chance of browsing through the source code of a commercial game. Enjoy :)
