Trivia

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 Brouchon) featured the Maupiti Island interface and even more beautiful 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, a short and shallow adventure, turned out a massive flop, selling only a few thousand copies. As a consequence, Suriya was canceled a couple of months before its completion.
