Development and legacy
Andrew Leker of SkyRealms Publications founded a new company called Mind Control Software, and its first project was Alien Logic (1994), which was published by SSI. Alien Logic resulted in the rights to Skyrealms of Jorune becoming fractured; as the computer game did not do very well financially, multiple investors wanted some payback.
The game was reviewed in the March 1995 issue of PC Gamer.
According to Shannon Appelcline, Alien Logic "was considered original and innovative but too tough to learn and thus it never really got much attention".
Paul C. Schuytema of Computer Gaming World stated: "The craft displayed in the implementation of the game's interfaces and the world dynamics only makes me more frustrated. SSI has crafted one hell of a game engine, which would have been eminently capable of presenting us with an unforgettable playing experience. Instead, they deliver plot and writing which are nothing more than an embarrassment, leaving the player only going through the "point and click" motions rather than becoming absorbed in an alien world and culture so painstakingly thought out."
