About

Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog!
I am Simon Mesnard, an independent creator from France,
also known as Simon Says: Watch! Play!
I try to find a balanced lifestyle between my job of indie video game developer and my life in the countryside.

About me:

I work on a vast sci-fi project called The Black Cube series, reminicent of Myst and 2001: A Space Odyssey. It already gave birth to several adventure games available on Steam (ASA, Catyph, Myha, Kitrinos...) and a few animated films: Next to this, I work on a more cartoonish series inspired by the village I live in and my childhood: it's called My Magical Village or, in French, Mon Village est Magique (MVEM). It takes place near the ruins of a real castle in Burgundy, in the nearby countryside.

Games I want to make:

My favorite tools to create video games and short films are 3dsmax and After Effects. I used to love most of the games that were created with pre-rendered 3d graphics in the 1990s such as, for the most famous ones: Myst and Riven, Syberia, Grim Fandango, Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy and many other J-RPGs... Even today they continue to inspire me a lot. And most independent game developers inspire me a lot too! In order to encourage their creativity I have founded The Icehouse collective.

In my free time:

I try to take care of my old house with a vegetable garden, I do watercolor paintings, I like to discover how to use plants to heal, etc. Maybe we can share some knowledge together?

Everything I learn is pretty convenient for me in order to try to live on my small income. Without this, and without your financial support on Patreon or when you purchase my games, I wouldn't be able to continue to create things on my own... So thanks for your help!

I hope I can make you dream a little bit with my video games and other creations! Your monthly donation on Patreon goes directly to supporting me and my work day after day.
YOU CAN OF COURSE CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME.

Thanks for all!
- Simon
