Not long after i've released Basketball, Percepts and Dodgeball, "Philou" of MO5.com contacted me and asked me if i would want to make a few tweaks for the Tennis game of OdySim for an upcoming exposition in Paris, France and since Philou is a heck of a swell guy, i couldn't resist!
The exposition is called: "Game: Le jeu vidéo à travers le temps" (in english: Game: Video games across time") In Paris, France from March 1st to August 27th, 2017 at the EDF Fondation (address: 6 rue Récamier, 75007, Paris) which resume video games through time from the latest to the first ones (2017 to 1958). You can vist the expositon for free between Tuesday to Sunday from 12h (noon) to 19H.
And here's some screenshots of "OdySim Tennis" from two different videos:
And on a page of MO5 (http://mag.mo5.com/l-asso/110358/rappel-exposition-game-a-la-fondation-edf-des-mercredi/), it states this (in original French format): " ... pour l’occasion, Sylvain De Chantal pour les même raisons avec l’émulateur OdySim dédié à l’Odyssey (1972), première console de jeux vidéo de l’Histoire, et enfin ... ". (in English: ... for the occasion, Sylvain De Chantal (that's my real name btw) for the same reason with the emulator (oups! it's a simulator!) OdySim dedicated to the Odyssey (1972), first game console in history, and finally ...). So i'm very proud and touched to see the work of OdySim be used to demonstrate how video games were like back in the beginning of the 70's and for historical purpose (i've bottled this news for about four months).
Here's an illustration of Ralph Baer from Erwann Terrier which is part of the 18 most influencial video game creators:
And here's two links (of many videos) of the expostition (Sorry! they are only in French!):
So if you pass in Paris (before August 27), be sure to make a stop to see the exposition and the best thing...welll actually two things...it's free and you can play/learn about video games!
