Description

Located in Lyon, France, Usual Makers S.A.S. is a new indie game dev-team founded by Yannick Berthier and Sylvain Ramousse. The team is passionate about bringing the best games to the mobile platforms (or at least trying hard).

History

Early (pre)history

In December 2015, Sylvain sent an email to Yann: "I see that you are making mobile games. Let's eat something together and talk about that!". They spent the whole hour talking of game mechanics, player experience, and mobile gaming in general... that was great! Six months later, Yann contacted Sylvain back to have his opinion about a game currently in production: Step On Gregg.

Obvious Gathering

They met almost every week at cafés terraces to share ideas on the project. As Yann said: "We quickly realized that we were on the same wavelength, that we complemented each other pretty well, and that the game would be so much better if we worked together!". It then became clear that they should build something bigger together, so they can release Step On Gregg, and gather a team of game makers to build other great games!

Founders previous experiences

Yann is a passionate working on games since 1999. He was previously Team Leader at Eden Games, and solo indie game-dev for six years (published by BANDAI NAMCO Games). Sylvain is a heated digital entrepreneur. After working in IT for 10 years, he co-founded the successful companies AppGratis and Batch.com.
