Casus Ludi is an artisanal factory of playful and narrative experiences.
We create games and stories to heartily engage people in imagining, reflecting and acting.
We find causes for play.
We all grew up with games in our lives. We believe they are not limited to fun and entertainment. Games form a universal language and a lever for inclusion when a playful situation asks for gathering individual expertises and experiences. Whether it’s about exploring, informing, or even debating, we give ourselves the mission to find causes for games and mobilize mediation where it’s unexpected.
We create games for causes.
By our methodology and editorial choices, we wish to provide another vision of what a game can embody, as well as how it can be created. We want to break away from toxic concepts in the game and creative industries, such as the obsessions with performance, competition, and solutionism. We want to put forward themes resonating with our vision of a more habitable and fair world, imbued with social justice.
We do it by…
→ A love for crafts
→ Making with, not for
→ Evaluating of our projects and practices
→ A multidisciplinary approach
→ Sharing knowledge and insights
→ A refusal of magic formulas
→ Societal sobriety and ethics
Work in Progress
A card-based puzzle game that follows a young goddess and her growth in a misogynistic and patriarchal realm.
A parody game where two teams debate on phony topics and must use the most far-fetched neologisms.
We are Pierre, Florent, Tiphaine, Bastien, Léa, Swanny, and Célia.
We design, narrate, illustrate, develop, produce games and fictions with passion and commitment.
