Loki and CogniToy Partner to bring MindRover to Linux

Tustin, CA. -- June 20, 2000 -- Loki Software, Inc. today announces an agreement with CogniToy to bring the highly-acclaimed MindRover: The Europa Project to Linux gamers by early fall 2000.

MindRover is an ingenious 3D strategy/programming game that enables players to create autonomous robotic vehicles and compete them in races, battles and sports. Starting with an empty vehicle, gamers add components such as sensors, weapons and engines. Players wire the components together and set their properties using an innovative visual programming system before entering the vehicles in the 3D competitions. Gamers may also share their custom robots over email or through website competitions.

Our customers have proven their mettle in other games with fast reflexes and great aim," said Scott Draeker, president of Loki. "We are now extremely pleased to present a new challenge. Their creativity and problem-solving skills will be called to task in this unique and addictive game."
