Vintage Silmarils action adventure Robinson's Requiem available to download.

Warsaw, Poland – January 6, 2009. GOG.com ( http://www.gog.com), or Good Old Games, the digital distribution site with DRM-free PC classics, has announced another new deal that will add more games to the site’s growing catalogue. The deal with games emulation leader, DotEmu, brings a compilation of Robinson's Requiem and its informal sequel, Deus, to the classic games site. The two action-adventure games were created by Silmarils, a French developer that created more than 20 titles in various genres for several platforms before ceasing operations in 2003.

Both games places the player in the boots of explorers who find themselves stranded on mysterious alien planets with a mission to survive. The notoriously difficult games put players’ survival skills to the test as they need to manage every aspect of their character’s body in an attempt to survive the hostile world. Thanks to GOG.com, playing these games on modern operating systems is easier than finishing them, thanks to XP and Vista compatibility, a lack of DRM and the unbelievably low price of just $5.99… for both games. We’ve probably mentioned that games at Good Old Games are cheap, right?

“Silmarils' games are the ones our younger audience probably won't remember, which makes this a great occasion to bring back these very difficult – and very fun – games to every RPGs, action and adventure game fan,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “Thanks to DotEmu and our programming team, everyone can experience the ‘fight for your survival’ atmosphere on their modern computers.”

Robinson's Requiem Collection ( http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/robinsons_requiem_collection) is now available at GOG.com. More titles, as well as announcements of additional publishers, will follow in the coming weeks. Go to GOG.com and dive right into the world of classic PC gaming.
