Silmarils was a French computer game software company founded in 1987 by Louis-Marie and André Rocques. It produced games for PC, Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Macintosh, Atari ST and Atari Falcon.

The company is most closely associated with its Ishar series. Crystals of Arborea was one of the first games to offer real-time 3D environment and a large world with very few limits on movement. The company went bankrupt in 2003, and in 2004 the Rocques brothers and another former Silmarils member, Pascal Einsweiler, founded new studio called EverSim, specializing in political strategy games.[1]

It was named after J. R. R. Tolkien's Silmarils.
