When was the first time you played Transformice?
The first time I played (for real) Transformice was in the end of 2011, I wanted to present it to some friends.
How did you find out about the game?
One year and a half ago. I was talking with Tig about his work and he told me about a new game he had created. He told me it was based on the system of his other game “aaaah” but with much more better graphics. ;) He was working with a great graphist and was very proud of this new game. I thought that the idea of mice running to get cheese was very interesting.
What were your first thoughts on the game?
I was puzzled at first. There were too many mice at the same time @_@ . I thought it was cute and fun after trying a bit. But I thought that the commands were a bit difficult (How can you walk on that wall O_O ? ) and didn’t understand anything of what players were talking about on the chat (I was on the FR community. And, trust me, they have so many abbreviations - even to speak French - that you need at least a diploma to understand a sentence ><)
What did you do prior to working at Atelier 801?
I studied Management with a specialization in Marketing-Communication in a school from EDHEC group. With the internship at Atelier 801, I will get my diploma.
How did you get involved with working at Atelier 801?
I was looking for a 6 month internship to validate my last year of studies. I wanted to work in the video games field.
Fortunately, the new enterprise of my cousin was working nicely. So nicely that they wanted to develop and improve their communication. My dream job *_*
I applied, answered a job interview, and they took me in \o/
Who is your cousin?
Tigrounette is my cousin
Did you know Tig growing up? What was he like?
Yes, a little bit because he was much older than me (He was a grown up for me lol). He was really nice
. He invented a lot of games. Such as : The Hide-and-Seek on the Beach, or the Quicksand Monster. He was always the one to initiate a game : “Hey ! Let’s play !” . That's how i remember him
What do you hope to accomplish for Transformice?
I want to make it known not only on the internet but also IRL. Make events, goodies, and develop the website. Make the players live happily (ever after \o/)
Any events planned for Transformice that you can tell us about?
No sorry I can’t ><
What do you like most about Transformice?
Mice (they are so cute *_*) , Dressing-up, and the community
How pro are you at Transformice?
… That’s a trick question ! >< I am a newbie, but a pro newbie please. I had 1 first \o/ and I can walljump on the right (not every time, but still I can do it). Though, I can’t walljump on the left side, it’s because of the commands, they differ too much ! ><
Out of all of Atelier 801's employees who would you say is the most pro at Transformice?
Papaille because he stays at work day and night, never taking any break. So impressive O_O !
Can Papaille walljump? What is his official job title?
He does not walljump, but he runs in his wheel and create secret hiding places with kitchen paper.
He does not have an official job title >< Sydoline suggested “White Mouse” .
What is your favorite shop item?
I have two actually : The red ribbon and the lollipop ><
Which vanilla map do you like the best?
The cheese thief maps, and to be more precise the number 112
How are your art skills?
… I can draw cats and flowers ! \o/ but they do not seem very real though >< So I would say, my art skills are awesome !
Can you show us?
Awesome right ?!
What does your username mean?
It comes for a Greek word that means ‘lamp’ .
Do you speak Greek? What languages do you know?
Actually, I studied ancient Greek in HighSchool . I can understand a bit of modern Greek because the words and the alphabet are similar. However, it keeps confuse me because some letters or words are not said or spelled the same way. (Such as “Kalimera”, that means “Good Morning” in modern Greek. In ancient Greek it was said Kali Emera, Kali meaning “Good, beautiful” and “Emera” meaning “Day” -> it IS different >< )
I speak French, English, and Italian, a bit of Spanish (I need to improve my Spanish ! ) and Wolof (but nobody cares I think ><), and just a few words in Russian (это не я, это кошка -> I know how to say it, but not how to write it, so TY G***** Translate \o/) .
What are your hobbies?
I read a lot (mostly Fantasy
and Mangas -> Mangas rule !) and play old video games (I have a Nintendo 64 and it is awesome ! \o/ ). I also watch movies and television series. I am kind of always on the internet >< (I am addicted to the internet ) .
Favorite book/manga/movie/tv show?
Favorite Book : The Farseer Trilogy *_*
(and my favorite writers are Carol Berg and Stefan Zweig )
Favorite Manga : I have two actually – Love Monster and Princess (Princess is a Manwha, a Korean manga)
Favorite Movie : The Fifth Element (I love you Ruby Rhod !)
Favorite TV Show : I like so many of them >< So I would say, if I have to choose (T_T), just 3 of them. (It was a very difficult choice, I assure you ! ><). Avatar The Last Airbender, Malcolm, and Once Upon a Time.
Do you like to game?
Yes a lot *_* My favs are old games such as Zelda OOT, The Nomad Soul, or FF VIII (yes, I prefer FF VIII to FF VII because Squall is so handsome !!! ). I prefer RPG to MMORPG, because I’ve never had the patience to improve my character on a MMO, it is toooo long >< I play a lot of online games, but only if it can be casual (i.e., you don’t have to be always online to finish the game). Such as Transformice (
) or Monster Hunter 3 in another type of game :p.
No, not for now T_T But I want a cat *_*
What junk food are you guilty of indulging on?
Sweets >< and Chocapics !
Any closing comments for the community?
I want to do so many things \o/ Hope you will enjoy !
