LOSTsim is a fan-made project that was inspired by ABC's popular television series LOST. The project was started in 2006 with the aim of providing an accurate simulation of the DHARMA Initiative's computers. Users can experience what it would be like fulfilling the demanding responsibilities associated with the research stations. Currently the project consists of the Swan and Pearl stations, with the intention of releasing more stations in the future…

The domain was registered in 2012 and it became known as LOSTsim. Prior to that it was known as 'Push The Button' and only consisted of the Swan station computer.

In 2010 LOSTsim was demonstrated on Planet Lost, an exclusive bonus feature that is included with the The Complete Collection box set.


This program is free to download and runs on Windows and Mac platforms.
