Lankhor

Overview

Lankhor was a French video games development studio based in the south west of Paris, close to Versailles. The company was founded in 1987 and was closed on 31st December 2001. It was established through the merger of two very small French studios: BJL Langlois by Jean-Luc Langlois and Kilkhor by Bruno Gourier. The studio initially developed for the Amiga, Atari ST and DOS platforms and later branched out to console and hand-held systems such as the Mega Drive, SNES and Game Gear.

Around 1996 the studio was about to close down, but then Daniel Macré joined the studio. He had previously worked together with Lankhor to develop an adaptation of the Sinclair QL game Wroom! for other platforms. In 1997, Lankhor entered a partnership with Eidos Interactive and created F1 World Grand Prix (1999) for the PlayStation and Windows. After the cancellation of a contract with the Japanese publisher Video System Co., Ltd. in January 2001 for an FIA licensed F1 game on PC and Xbox, Lankhor closed its doors on 31st December 2001 as the economical situation provided no new opportunities to work on new titles in 2001. Val d'Isère Ski Park Manager (February 2002) was the company's last game. Some of the developers moved on to found Corélane. Daniel Macré left the games industry permanently.

One of the unreleased games is Sukiya.
