Trivia

Cancelled sequel

Starting in 1991, Lankhor prepared a third case for detective Jérôme Lange. The game's working title: Suriya. Set in a tranquil monastery in Japan, the adventure (design: Sylvian Bruchon) featured the Maupiti Island interface and graphics by Stephane Polard (look at Lankhor.net for samples). Suriya was scheduled for release in summer 1993.
In early 1993, however, Lankhor published its prestigious project Black Sect. The game turned out a massive flop, selling only a few thousand copies. As a consequence, Suriya was canceled a couple of months before its completion.

Demo mode

Maupiti Island features a demo mode. Press ALT on the title screen to watch the computer play for you. Don't get your hopes too high, though: the demo is terribly slow and doesn't give away the solution to any puzzle - except for one little hint.

Speech

It uses the voice synthesis for all the dialogues (50 minutes of dialogues). A soundblaster its is not necessary to benefit from the dialogues.
