OverviewSilmarils was founded in October 1987 by two French brothers, Louis-Marie and Andre Rocques. The two brothers were independent game developers since 1983 for micro-computers like TRS-80, Amstrad, and Oric.
Silmarils have their main office in Lognes (Marne-La-Vallee) near Paris, where most of production takes place, and a development studio in Nancy (Eastern France).
The company has created games for different systems and in various genres, such as Targhan (side-scrolling action), Transarctica (strategy), the Ishar series (RPG), Deus (action and survival simulation), Time Warriors (3D fighting), Asghan (action-adventure), and others.
The different titles developed by Silmarils have been distributed and licensed worldwide; they are localised in native language for each country, including even special font icons (Polish, Korean, Chinese, etc.).
TriviaNamed after the three mythic gems from the J.R.R. Tolkien novel "THE SILMARILLION", which also inspired the name of resurgent UK rock group Marillion
