QUANTIC DREAM was founded in 1997 by David Cage. Today co-managed by David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière, our studio has gained over the years international recognition for its contribution to interactive narration and its fresh thinking on emotion in games.

We are also considered to be one of the leading motion capture studios, especially for the creation of real-time 3D Virtual Actors performing with stunning realism.

Over the last twenty one years we have developed proprietary engines and technologies, including some very advanced tools and a unique approach to the production pipeline.

As a game development studio, we collaborated in the past with major publishers including Eidos, Vivendi Universal Games, Microsoft Games Studios, Atari and Sony Computer Entertainment. We created the games OMIKRON THE NOMAD SOUL featuring recording artist David Bowie and FAHRENHEIT INDIGO PROPHECY.
