Hi,
Reading the '''prehistomag'',, I remarked, on page 47, that the COI ,1987 ancestor of the CEO, was selling three Text adventure games l had never heard of before.
These games are:

- La chapelle maudite
- La maison du docteur Globuls
- Kriss

They were sold on K7 and Jasmin disc support.
These games are not on Oric.org neither in any known (by me ) games archive .

If you have any information about these games, It may help us to find them back:-)
thanks..

Hi Dom,

I doubt this will help much, but I did find this small ad on page 107 of Jeux et Stratégie No. 41 Oct/Nov 1986:
Logiciels originaux d'aventure sur Oric Atmos: La Chapelle maudite, Krigstory... cassette: 65F, disquette Jasmin: 120F. Pierre Mussard, 19, boulevard de La Croix-Rousse, 69004, Lyon.
I wonder if Krigstory is a renaming of Kriss...

No sign of any of them amongst my collection, I'm afraid.

Hi Jon,
the author's name Is the same in the 1987 JEO . But in JEO we did not had the postal adress of the author. This new information might help us to try to contact him. Even if 35 years later... Our chances to succed are quite thin :|

Madame Sylvie Mussard (née Delmas), a lawyer aged 55, is practising from the same address, lots of entries on Google...

I got the following informations concerning Pierre Mussard in Lyon...

19 BD DE LA CROIX ROUSSE 69004 LYON France
PIERRE MUSSARD, individual entrepreneur, registered under SIREN 316125210, has been in business for 9 years. Located in LYON (69004), it specialized in the sector of activity of various services rendered mainly to businesses.
The company MONSIEUR PIERRE MUSSARD was closed on February 28, 1989

Pierre MUSSARD (Pierre Louis Maurice MUSSARD) died on December 17, 1996 in Dardilly at the age of 43 and born in Lyon 7th arrondissement on March 28, 1953. Act number 84

It is not sure this is the right Pierre Mussard, but there is a good 'chance' as he is the only Pierre Mussard that I found in Lyon. Dardilly Being in the suburb of Lyon.

I'm sure you're correct, how sad that he died so young. Even if Sylvie Mussard is his widow, he died so long ago that it looks like that's not a route to find old cassette tapes. Back to the COI route? Anyone?

Thanks to Jon and Nick H. who provided a WAV file, and to Steve M. who provided inlay and instruction scans, The Haunt from OUM is now available at Oric.org.
