Hexagonal is a podcast dedicated to the history of French video games and their respective developers. Born from an unexplainable urge from the author to chronicle that strange and unique part of our beloved hobby, this podcast is published every fortnight, usually on Mondays if the stars are right. The subjects tackled vary a lot from one another but all revolve around France and its beautiful but – oh – so chaotic game companies and industry.

Studios come and go, some rise while other fall. It's unfair, cruel and quite random. Yet tenacity and diligence are the key for each and every single one of them. Darkworks tried, pitching a dozen of games yet only releasing... two. Following me at the dawn of a new year as I retell the genesis of Darkworks; Parisian lone gunman responsible for th…
 
That's it folks, pack up 2021 and make way for the brand new year 2022 around the corner. But wait since you're here, why not listen to one last episode for the road? Join me as I ponder one final time about Hexagonal and what brought me to create this podcast, teasing new topics and reflecting on this past year. Warning: bad case of the flu on the…
 
Here it is, the first episode where I tackle with grace & respect the tremendous landscapes of the French-Belgian comic-books aka "bande dessinée". Instead of trying to chart every link between the two industries, I'll make, from time to time, an episode focusing on one specific aspect of the intertwined relation. In this episode, after a long, ver…
 
Love them or hate, kids are part of our daily life, hell, they even carry our DNA, those little whipper-snappers! The "spawn" (as used to call them my always so evocative economics teacher) love video games but surely they NEED to be watch over lest they become psycho-killers. Let's just BAN those horrible video games, that will save their nascent …
 
"Gee, wizz, I wonder what will happen if I make my character drink this CYANIDE labelled bottle that I found in this medkit." I was ten, young and gullible and playing Deus, so you can't blame me for this innocent blunder. I'm still gullible but not so young and this week I'll take a look at the last nine years of Silmarils and how things went sout…
 
You have been chosen by the gods to go on an epic quest to murder the evil local sorcerer. Your companions are the strongest of the realms, your swords are sharp and your will unshakeable. Yet after a good night's rest, you found one of your brothers-in-arm dead. Caught in a paranoid fever, you keep accusing each other and soon... everyone is lying…
 
You feel it too, don't you? Days becoming shorter, nights longer. Something wicked is coming this way and it would be wiser to stay under a blanket and play video game as we enter Halloween season. But we don't celebrate this event in France and the podcast deadline is going up. Unless... yes... *that* will do. Join me as I peer into the past and r…
 
You just came out of the theatre, removed your mask and fondly ponder as your partner is asking you what you thought of Villeneuve's new movie: "Man, wouldn't that be great if they made a video game about Frank Herbert's masterpiece?" Well Hexagonal can't make the game for you but still got you covered! In this episode, I jump back to nostalgia lan…
 
Can passion stay pristine through a twenty-year career in video game development? Can one man stay through to his forbidden love for the SEGA Master System through thick and thin? Omar Cornut is the proof that those two questions can both be positively answered. Join me as I follow the path of a French wiz kid who ditch senior positions in AAA comp…
 
Time is running out for your host as real life catches up to him. What can he do to solve his problem? Take a French leave? "Filer à l'anglaise ?" Funny, those two idioms mean the same thing and yet they mock a different side of the Channel Sea. Join me as I pull out from my hat the tricky subject of video game localization in my beautiful hexagona…
 
We can also be heroes just for one game and that game was Omikron aka The Nomad Soul aka the birth of David Cage. Crazy, ambitious, bloated, and so on. Adjectives are lacking to describe Quantic Dreams games. So come and join me as I discuss the studio's inception and how a composer for hire became a promising game director with quirks that would f…
 
"This dream again?" Will you be able to escape the cycle of guilt created by the horrible actions of your character? Not by murdering every civilian, you won't! E.Y.E is a strange beast (dare I say "strange streumon"?) born from the mind of talented modders who aimed for the stars and beyond. Join me as I retell the story of a French cult classic o…
 
Your company is doing well. It's doing BETTER than well thanks to your new killer game selling like hotcakes. After ten years of navigating between a rock and a hardplace, you're finally out of the frying pan, ready to go public. The sequel is a no brainer! Everything will be alright. Except... that after the end of quarter party, the architects of…
 
On May 28th 2021, I was deeply sadden to learn of the passing of Benoit Sokal, bande dessinée author and very enthusiastic video game producer and designer. While not perfect (but what IS ?) L'Amerzone, Syberia, The Sinking Island are unique adventure games that touched many people who are not huge video game fans. Please join me in this episode as…
 
No IGN on our godforsaken country, why you wonder? Because we have been browsing the same website for our daily video game news, game walkthrough and (racist) memes for the last fifteen years. Follow me as I go back to the inception of www.jeuxvideo.com, France's third most visited website (at least in 2013 it was) and a growth that surprised even …
 
Video Game composers are here to stay, that's the rule for most of them. From Koji Kondo to Jesper Kyd, few have left our glorious hobby of their own will and yet Stéphane Picq, one of France's most ecclectic video game composer did that after 10 years of wonderful music for Cryo. Who is the talented Mr Picq and why did he leave? Find more by liste…

Radio avatardisme communauté cpu en costume enflammée photo vidéo émission Comme annoncé, on a fait une rentrée dans les normes : Au fin fond d'une zone industrielle, dans un célèbre lieu artistique,…
 
Texte de ma conférence donnée lors du THSF 2019, avec supports et liens, références, crédits et mercis.Je reviens sur ce qu’Otomo nous dit dans ses œuvres (et pas seulement dans Akira) sur la gestion des émeutes par les forces de l’ordre civiles et militaires, mais aussi sur ce qu’il n’avait pas vu et ce qu’il n’avait pas prévue malgré ses récits d…
