History

Jean (Jean-Michel Brisset) and Myself (Alexandre Tourne) met around 12 years ago. We studied in the same art school based in Paris nearby the Louvre Museum. After we got our bachelor degree in art, we took a different way. Jean specialised in drawing, illustration and spent 4 years in a professional school called Pivaut based in Nantes. I chose to specialise in video game where I learnt the basic skills of game design, sound design, graphic 3d etc during 3 years in a professional school (Lisaa, based in Paris). When I got my game designer degree and spent few years in the video game industry, I contacted Jean and proposed to him the idea of creating our own company to produce original artistic games. I really wanted to combine our talent as draftsmen and game designers to create something unique in the video game industry. Our approach is inspired from painting, photography and traditional drawing.
