Artist Cédric Babouche and producer Aymeric Castaing present a closer look at the making of their unique video game Dordogne.
The stunningly beautiful video game follows Mimi as she reminisces about time spent with her grandmother in the Dordogne region of France. The game was created using over 150 watercolors painted by Babouche, creating a lush and poetic backdrop to this charming game set in one of France’s most beautiful regions. Castaing will address his unique approach to multimedia storytelling, discussing the breadth of the Dordogne transmedia project. The conversation and Q&A will be moderated by Francesco Antolini, Game Designer and Instructor at NYU Game Center.
Dordogne has been presented internationally at Tokyo Game Show, Gamescom, Pax East Boston, and others.
