|Coktel Vision #4 |
Games developed: 20
Games published: 15
Period: 1986 - 1995
Famous for quirky, wacky games that can only come from France , Coktel Vision developed a lot of adventure and action games in their homeland in mid-80s (usually as publisher of its better-known subsidiary Tomahawk), none of which was sold outside Europe. Coktel also developed excellent but even lesser known educational games, most starring quirky alien Ali. The company's fame skyrocketed in 1992 when it became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sierra On-Line, which began to distribute Coktel games in the United States.
Following Sierra's buyout by Havas and disappointing sales of its last titles (e.g. The Last Dynasty, which should remain forgotten), Coktel is now developing only educational games that are marketed in Europe only.
