For Immediate Release

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."
