The digitized voice at the start of the game belongs to Mark Butler. The full text is "Welcome to Nodes of Yesod from the Odin Computer Graphics Team".
During development the working title was: "Moon Munching Moles From Mars".
On "I've Started So I'll Finish", Stuart Fotheringham reveals that the programmers of Nodes lost the code when a Microdrive they were storing it on crashed. The game had to be completed in a rush with the result that the "final version wasn't as good as our original".
