Development and release[edit]

The game was developed by Cryo Interactive Entertainment and published by The Adventure Company for Windows in 2003.[1] The game is based on the novel Salammbô by Gustave Flaubert and the works of Phillippe Druillet, who was heavily involved in the game's development.[2]


The game was reviewed in 2004 in Dragon #319 by Clifford Horowitz in the "Silicon Sorcery" column. Horowitz comments: "Puzzle based, the game is heavy on problem solving and has an intriguing plot that keeps a player's interest from the first scene."[3]
