First Encounters was released in the UK and elsewhere in April 1995. It shipped in a somewhat drab and uninspiring box, possibly as a result of its rushed release. In the US, however, Gametek released the game with a much more interesting design, as shown above. The full colour graphics were more detailed and would have increased the product's in-store appeal.
