The Lord of the Rings: Journey to Rivendell was programmed (or going to be) by Paul Stevens. According to the 1983 press release, the game features Frodo travelling from his home in the Shire to the door at Mora. While doing so, the player must try to avoid the evil Black Riders as they journey through Middle Earth.

A Movie based on Tolkien's classic novels is in the works though, with New-Zealand's Peter Jackson directing, while his Visual Effects studio is doing the tricks.
