Description

Le Cartel is an indie game development studio based out of Paris. We made a first game released in 2015 called "MOTHER RUSSIA BLEEDS" published by DEVOLVER DIGITAL.

History

The genesis

Le Cartel team came into being in September 2013. when a team of four independent developers and artists with complementary skill sets decided to join forces and see if they had the chops to create a great game by themselves: "Mother Russia Bleeds". The game they wanted to create was one that harkened back to the golden age of the Beat ‘Em Up genre. And there, Frédéric Coispeau met Alexandre Muttoni, a web artistic director who also wants to make his own indie game. They began by working on the game universe and defining the art direction of our game. A few weeks later, Florian Reneau, recently graduated from the school Isart Digital, joined the project as game programmer. Finally, Vincent Cassar, composer of FIXIONS is in charge of the OST.

Devolver Digital

Our pre-alpha trailer was a blast, and soon, Devolver Digital contacted us. We signed with them few month after that. The game has been released in 2016, september the 5th. It was a huge success, but Florian Reneau, the programer of the game, decided to left the compagny, so we hired Florence Noé. Florence worked on the indie game "Event [0]" and "Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2". We worked together for few months on some new ideas, new projects... And then, in february 2018, during the "Urban Game Jam", we made a prototype of a physical based party game. Everybody around us was insanely into it, so we decided to work on it. We asked the help of Camille Giraudeau, a great sound designer and friend of ours to handle the whole audio part (music and SFX). Finally show a polished version to Devolver few months later. We signed with them once again, and the "Heave Ho" project was launched!
