I am Hugo Labrande, and I have been writing and designing video games for 13 years (and 20 games), and editor-in-chief for the website www.fiction-interactive.fr. Welcome to my page! Use the menu above to see my portfolio, or subscribe to my newsletter in French. I am also available for hire!

You can contact me via email at (myfirstname)_at_hlabrande.fr; I am also on Twitter, @hlabrande!

Et oui, ce site est bilingue !

Hire me!

Do you have a game idea but need someone to write it? Do you need a narrative game for a special occasion? (Or a special someone?) Do you need someone with experience in narrative games to edit or translate your game?

If that’s the case, hire me! I can create tailor-made narrative games, and adapt to what you are looking for. With 13 years of experience and interest in narrative games, both in English and French, I am a mainstay of French interactive fiction; I have a very good knowledge of the tools, the history and the possibilities of the genre, which means I can create something that fulfills your needs and requirements. I can use a variety of tools, adapt to your requirements specification, and I’m not afraid of coding; I have written games for PC, mobile, and for companies!

Don’t hesitate to contact me, even if your project is small or atypical. I have even created wedding invitations, as a Twine hyperlink-based game inspired by Carmen Sandiego!

I have completed commissions, which you can see on this page, along with recommendations of my previous employers. You can also take a look at my works, which shows a good deal of variety in themes and tools used, and what people said about them.

I also offer my services for editing or translating your narrative game, between English and French. I have translated several games from English to French, as well as a few from French in English; I have also worked on creating special tools which allowed me to have faster and more resilient processes.

I hope to talk to you soon!
