Simarils' Robinson's Requiem made its debut on the PC several months

We already knew about "Robinson's Requiem", but now it is much faster than the
other versions and is graphically far superior with the many textures that have been added

"Deus Ex Machina" is the Robinson's sequel. With a better life simulation
module, graphically improved, the possibility to fly above the 3D scene with the Vitaspro
technique in the Magic Carpet style, automapping, weather simulation, lots of good FMV...
Should be out for Christmas 95.

story takes place many centuries before the trilogy. New interface, new perspective. Fully
textured mapped. Automapping. Light sources simulation. FMV with good actors... Should be
out for Christmas 95.
