It was supposed to be some interactive cd-i magazine, initiated by Le Monde. I'm sorry to say, but these all were rubbish...

Interactive, as in "YOU have to put the words in the correct order"? :)

Omegalfa just finished a new cd-i magazine (or just translated an old one? that wasn't clear for me....)

Maybe he wants to tell something about it to us?

apparantly not, but the magazine is indeed an old one from 2003, now properly translated into english.

check it out here

although you'll find it hard to read because of the small lettertype, or my resolution is too high.... or it's just me.

Thanks for the update, Omegalfa!

Look forward to that one :D

This game on the VCD was it a CD-i exclusive game or some sort of Video quiz compatible with all VCD players?

Sounds very interesting!

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!

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:
