Sega Trivia Test #4
This time, we focus on (almost) everyone's favorite old school Sega developer - by BenT

My pants are full of gems!!!
PlanetDreamcast's Sega Trivia Test (STT) appears every so often to test your knowledge of Sega-related trivia. Last time we quizzed you on the Sega Master System, the not-so-popular-in-the-US predecessor to Sega's smash-hit Genesis. This time around, we bring our sights back to the present, focusing the spotlight on one of the finest game developers to ever grace the industry: Treasure! Hopefully, you've played a Treasure game or three in your time. Not only will that help you on this quiz, but you'll have experienced kick-ass action gaming at its best, too. So... do you think you know Treasure? You're about to find out.

Jump in and answer, and then take a look below and see how you do. The test automatically scores your responses and lets you know where you stack up on the next page. If you think this is too easy, or you think you can stump us, why not send us some questions? If we like 'em, they could be featured on a future Sega Trivia Test. Anything else on your mind? Send it our way.

68000 was the highest score achieveable in the game
The lead character, an android, had the serial number 68000
Only 68,000 copies of the game were manufactured, which is why it's so expensive today

20. Finally, how many Treasure games have been released in the United States so far (excluding a certain perpetually-delayed PS2 title)?
