Having become fascinated with video games as a young boy, Stéphane always knew he would make them his career, so after graduating from the University of Strasbourg he joined Spellbound Studios in order to work on several games, such as Desperados or Robin Hood, before setting up his own video games company, Creative Patterns. Having produced a few games for DS and PC, the company closed in response to the crisis regarding the production of games for Nintendo DS. However, drawing on that experience, Stéphane set up Method In The Madness, a company which specialises in the rapidly expanding field of serious games.
