Exile was released in 1988 by Superior Software. At the time, it was considered cutting edge and pushed the boundaries of what was possible on 8-bit platforms. It remains probably the most complex game available for the BBC Micro. The game was later ported to the Commodore 64, Atari ST, Amiga and CD32, all by Audiogenic. There were both OCS (1991) and AGA (1995) versions of Exile for the Amiga. Amiga Power magazine voted the OCS version to be the best game of 1991.
