Dordogne will be released on PC and consoles next year, thanks to a partnership between Focus Entertainment and indie development studio Umanimation.

An unexpected alliance
“With this partnership for Dordogne, Focus once again demonstrates its active and historic support for the French-speaking scene, as well as its constant desire to offer singular titles and vectors of emotion,” said Yves Le Yaouanq, Chief Content Officer of Focus Entertainment.
“Cédric Babouche and Aymeric Castaing, both from animation backgrounds, have brought together their expertise and talent to create a universe of hand-painted watercolors that bring to life a rich, vibrant video game. The game is driven by a strong, emotive, immersive, and nostalgic narrative, set between past and present, where the dreams and fears of children confront our desires and regrets as adults,” he added.
