FOR THE ANECDOTE

"Everything started with Florent who has been desperately waiting for a game for 20 years : a space opera with Baldur's Gate gameplay.

Passionate about video games since his childhood, but especially about the creative universe around him, he decides to do everything to make his dream come true. So he created his own video game studio to make the game he no longer expects.

It is at 35 years old and despite a busy work schedule that he starts... He has no experience in the code, but decides to learn alone via forums, videos, books... to see the feasibility and viability of the project. A few months later he managed to develop a first prototype game.
He shares a Gaming Live session with a teaser and a project description on social networks and forums. 1 week later here is Lilian, with whom he decides to start the project, then Kevin, Sam Oz, then 2 trainees from the Jean TRUBERT school (Paris) as well as other people passing through, and that's it : the machine starts. Everything happens quickly, universes, characters are formed and the game takes on a whole new dimension.

So here we are today, presenting you our work and our universe from our gut. We hope that through this text we have shown you that this is certainly our first game, but we are passionate and will not give up. See you soon ! »
