I bet you didn’t know that these game developers were French: OUAT Entertainment (Eden’s Quest: The Hunt for Akua, Pure Hidden), Yamago (Ikibago: Caribbean Jewel), Orange Games (Little Folk of Faery), Aldorlea Games (Millennium), and Kheops Studio (The Fall Trilogy). If you did, give yourself some extra kudos!
