I’ll walk you through a bit of the history behind this title as I make several attempts to play through it. Also from Wikipedia:
Ground Zero Texas was a “second-generation” title for Digital Pictures, their first titles for the Sega CD having been rehashes of titles developed for Hasbro’s aborted NEMO system. The game had a two million dollar budget – most of which was generated by the bundling of Sewer Shark with Sega CD consoles.

The game started life with the codename Project X, a script written by Digital Pictures co-founder Ken Melville that was inspired by Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Invaders from Mars. By the time development started the script had been re-written by Alan B. McElroy, Edward Neumeier and Joshua Stallings.

The game’s FMV was shot by a full Hollywood film crew, which meant that Digital Pictures had to negotiate with the Directors Guild, Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild – the first time this had been done for a video game.
