Piece of Cake Studios is a newly created French videogame studio founded by 3 experimented professionals who combined 25 years experience in video games (from Ankama Studios, Eden Games, Eugen Systems among others...).
We're focusing on cooperative gameplay, procedural level and story design as our 3 major axis.
Marine Freland and Xavier Lemaitre both met in 2006 in Eden Games Studios where they worked together on majors AAA games. Besides realizing they'll make the cutest couple, they also thought they have what it takes to create and manage a video game studio in France. No pressure.
After a 10 years experience in studios such as Eden Games or Ankama Games (Alone in the Dark, Test Drive, Wakfus les Gardiens...) they finally create in 2015 "Piece of Cake Studios" with a 3rd associate, Bérenger, who worked with and for start-ups in the field of communication, he brings to the team the hindsight and creative support it needs.
