TRIVIA: Originally designed and coded for the Apple IIGS by Naughty Dog, makers of Playstation hits CRASH BANDICOOT and the JAK game series. Here's what they had to say about the game:

"Keef was a classic sword and scorcery role-playing game. While we were making it, Andy entered sarcastic text as a place holder for what we believed would be the real text in the final release. EA liked the humor so much that they decided to make the entire game a comedy. The effect that this decision had on sales was no joke, however."
