the thing makes me even more wondering how this game looks like:
- TF1 and Philips Media France launch several VIDEO-CD's about 1994 / 1995. Why to have created a game for these movies? Why no other VIDEO-CD's launched by TF1 does not contain based games on the movies?
Two reasons to these questions. A structural one, for all the others CD-i was realized by TF1 video. The other because Thierry LHERMITTE had come to see us to do a CD-ROM on the movie, as a good experience of the CD-i that we had and that there remained a lot of place on the disc 2, we did a rock 2 blows.

- How many persons worked in these titles? It was the same team for the two titles?
Yes, I was the responsible one "operational" of this project. But the team grown from a year to the other for 3 titles was realized in 1995: "Le Journal Interactif 1995" more his game, "Un Indien dans la Ville" (Little Indian, Big City) on GameBoy and CD-i. The better, is to look at the generic to determine exactly the number of intervening.

- TF1 thought to create "The Interactive newspaper 1996"? If yes, why it was never created, if no, why?
The climbed in too quick power of the costs linked to the multimedia ones (so, some risk) scared to TF1 (3, 10, 15, 25 persons... 3, 5, 20 million francs (French money) by title...). The exponential financial weight on my small shoulders of project boss pushed them to change strategy. They preferred to take 7% of TITUS, game corporation disappeared today.
Thanks for the link, by the way!

How did you got the link to this interview? Witch link? I give you no link...
I think if I would like to put it now I already did it... is it so hard to wait some days and avoid to find things that we want to show only in time and hour...

Easy Tiger, seems to be a misunderstanding here. That sample only wets my appetite for the full interview Omegalfa!

Remember, if anything gets published on the net then Bas is bound to find it very quickly... he has a natural gift for these things! Safest bet is not to publish anything until you want it on-line, that's a lesson I learnt pretty early on :wink:

I could have given the whole link but a teaser seemed more appropiate. Is it worth to discuss? It's advertising!

it's an easy way to track who gave me the link...

the interview doesn't tell a lot about the game itself. Are you planning another article around this? and have you tried the disc!

These 'news overviews' in 1994 and 1995 are also available in dutch, UK and german versions, these were developed by Lost Boys, so then the french ones would fall different from that place! It's a bit of a coincidence they all came with the same idea in the same years, don't you think?

>>TF1 and Philips Media France launch several VIDEO-CD's about 1994 / 1995

I'm looking for the ** complete ** list of those VCDs from TF1 and Philips Media France!

I've got some of them but sure my list is not complete! (regarding the numbering on each movie...)

- la gloire de mon père
- le chateau de ma mère
- l'amant
- little budda
- la soif de l'or
- un indien dans la ville
