Future Wars (orig. Les Voyageurs du Temps: la Menace), is the first game to use Delphine Software's Cinématique evo1 engine. In this game, a window washer finds himself caught in the middle of a war between two alien races. He has to travel through time in order to keep the aliens from destroying each other, and he also must save a kidnapped princess in the process.

There is an official soundtrack for the game which was supplied on the cover CD of the French magazine Generation 4. It consists solely of Red Book audio.

Also there was a CD-ROM release of this game in US. Some unconfirmed information on it can be found here. According to Marik Meytin from that thread, the game was published by Sony on CD-ROM in the United States. It only takes up between 1.4 and 1.5 megabytes of the CD-ROM and includes a playable demo of Lexigraph.
