Hi, my name is Simon Mesnard. I am also know as Simon Says: Watch! Play!



I develop video games, animated films and comic books in France. My projects are self-funded and I usually create them on my own, at home. I have founded the Icehouse collective that tries to support small teams /or individual creators. My main projects are adventure games, where I like to add a very personal touch through the scenario, the setting, and the addition of animated CG cutscenes. I am eager to cooperate with other creators motivated by the indie scene like me. I am opened to all ideas!

If you want to learn more about my projects,

you can visit my personal site with links to my main projects (Black Cube series, The Icehouse collective, Mon Village est Magique cooperative comics, and more). There you'll find some of my videos and links to my games.

I like to create 2D games with prerendered 3D environments, and it's mainly because of two reasons:

  • I've always shown interest for render engines and techniques (mentalray, vray, maxwell and more)
  • I have an incomprehensible passion for the old-school graphics and worlds of such games such as Riven, Donkey Kong Country, Grim Fandango and Final Fantasy...

If you want to learn more about me and my personal life,

I invite you to read my presentation on Patreon:
Patreon.com

Sometimes I work on paper with traditional tools, which proves quite comfortable after several hours stuck before my PC. Every week I try to record a new session of watercolor sketching, that I call Sunday Watercolor...


I'll be happy to reply if you have questions. Ask me anything!
