In direct from Jaguar Connexion 2003 from France... One of our guest was Louis Marie Roques, the boss of Silmarils (Ishar trilogy, Transarctica, Robinson's Requiem, etc.) and we learned a few interesting things...

Silmarils developed their hit Metal Mutant for the Lynx ! The game was complete, and canned by Atari. The game is probably lost... A real shame, the game was very good !

Might a ROM dump be in the works? (Hoping...)

I'm not familiar with this game, so I did some searching on Google. I found this page, which has the box art, a screenshot, a brief description and the game for download. I also found another page that has several screenshots, but the lengthy description is not in English so I have no idea what it says. :)

Looks like it would have been a cool addition to the Lynx lineup!

Oh man, I loved that game on my Amiga! Great sound effects and fantastic graphics. I would have loved to see that one on the Lynx. It would have been easy to port, considering the Lynx's Amiga connection. Damn. How disappointing.

Is it not strange a complete game get lost? :( So many hours of work put down in to a game by the developers and then they can't even find a little place to store it? Even more strange if the company still exist. It's a real tragedy :_(
