Quote:
Paris - September 22, 2015
Gamers visiting the exhibition entitled "Art in Video Games – the French Inspiration" in Paris from 25 September 2015 to 6 March 2016 will get an insight into the sketches and illustrations that were used to create the "Syberia" saga and "Amerzone". The exposition is fully localized in English.

Boasting over 800 works (sketches, watercolours, paintings and sculptures), the Art Ludique museum is staging the world's first major exhibition to showcase Art in Video Games. The exhibition will give amateurs and fans alike chance to discover a wealth of art from a wide variety of backgrounds, which have been arranged into seven different themes, including "Drawing towns and cities" and "An open invitation for a journey". These two themes are perfectly symbolised in the artwork by Benoit Sokal, artistic director for "Amerzone" and the "Syberia" series, both of which represent major titles in publisher Microïds' adventure games catalogue. Many of the original works that served as blueprints for these games will be on show throughout the circuit designed by Jean-Jacques and Diane Launier, the museum's President and Managing Director respectively.

In an era when design and pre-production are predominantly computerised, Benoit Sokal breaks the mould by continuing to use conventional pencil sketches and watercolours to breathe life into his gaming worlds, places and characters, as well as certain gameplay mechanics. The rich artistic value inherent in his works, especially for the "Syberia" saga, can be credited to his ability to consistently create real-life worlds with a twist by injecting an element of mystery and fantasy, as well as the ubiquitous mechanical objects characterising the steampunk trend.


Benoit Sokal gave his thoughts on the exhibition: "The way in which video games are perceived is changing in people's minds. The Art Ludique museum has always showed its imaginative streak by focusing the spotlight on the masterpieces of popular culture, and this exhibition is no exception by exclusively paying tribute to the people that design video game worlds. It gives me an immense feeling of pride to see some of the artwork that was instrumental in masterminding the "Syberia" series, both past and future, displayed in the company of other leading video games titles produced in France."

Benoit Sokal is once again working closely alongside Microïds in creating "Syberia 3", a new instalment in the adventures of Kate Walker, which the series' extremely active and enthusiastic community of gamers has been demanding for over 10 years. The game is slated for release in autumn 2016 on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac platforms.



Happy Gaming!

Every time a new game in a series comes out, I always replay the others first. I love the Syberia games & can't wait for this one.

Most of the video seems to be excerpts from the first two games, not the current game being worked on.
I'll be surprised if this is finished in 2016, but we'll see.

That is why it's called "the Road to Syberia 3".

I have no idea what you are referring to Cari. They are not late in producing the game. People may have wanted it years ago, but it wasn't promised to us.

I know i sure have missed the Kate Walker character. She is one of my favorites.

The videos made me want to replay the games. Beautiful. Think they'll play on the more current PC's?

The first screenshot teasers of "Syberia III" were released in 2014, with a promised release date of 2015.
The first screenshot teasers of "Syberia III" were released in 2014, with a promised release date of 2015 across PC, Xbox and PS4 consoles, as well as for iOS and Android. However, there has been neither news nor updates on "Syberia III" and development of the game has not been reported officially online (or elsewhere).
Since it is still early in the year, 2015 release date for "Syberia III" doesn't seem impossible. However, with the rate of information being released, "Syberia III" will likely come out by 2016

This is what I was referring to Anna.I seem to remember Syberia III was first promised as far back as 2010--5 years ago.Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks, Ana. How can anybody watch that video and not be compelled to replay those first two games. This will give me a chance to try out the GOG versions that I got for $2.99 each in one of their recent seasonal mega-sales. I just got the first one installed last night, working perfectly so far.

Like I said above, I've got the first one up and running on my Windows 7 64 bit computer. I see no reason why the second one shouldn't work also. GOG says they both will work on Windows 7, 8, and 10.

I have replayed the original disk versions of both games several times on this computer, although I think I used a NoCD hack for both of them. Not sure if it was necessary, or just for convenience. If anybody needs those NoCD files, I think I still have them.

It's not for nothing that these are called 'teasers'. This is one huuuuge tease .. wink

It's mostly 3D-animated static artwork, that is the by now familiar screenshots, until Kate gets to do what her name tells us she's pretty good at!

I was wondering if the shaky handheld Gamescon 2015 shots of the live orchestra performance include more relevant footage. It's quite vague:
