Black Moon updates the frontpage with a news paper article about the way how Philips promoted Burn:Cycle in a true online internet campaign. For being a (september) 1994 game, this must be some kind of pioneer for getting its own website at burncycle.com - a website even too old for the Internet Archive to retrieve! Read the full article here.
I always wonder if this marketing was one of the reasons that the CD-i version of Burn:Cycle has been viewed as one of the most prominent titles on its system, with Electronic Gaming Monthly awarding it "Best CD-i Game of 1994", and GamePro calling it "just what the CD-i needed". The magazines lauded the game's audio and cinematics. GamePro gave it a 5/5 score for three categories (graphics, sound, and fun factor), rating control at 4.5. 1UP.com, impressed by its futuristic setting and storyline, referred to Burn:Cycle as "one of the best showcases of the console's strengths."
