French video game publisher/developer Focus home Interactive are delighted to introduce Douze-Dixièmes as the latest of its partner studios.

Based in Paris, France, Douze Dixièmes is a passionate independent studio formed by seven people from a range of creative backgrounds. From animation to video games, this powerful cooperation of talents aims to create unique, touching, and meaningful gaming experiences where narration meets art to deliver truly memorable journeys.

"As a young studio we are very proud to enter a partnership with Focus!” announced George Herrmann, President and Co-founder of indie studio Douze-Dixièmes. "Every step of the way has proven their dedication to creativity even if it brings the need for innovation. As a team at Douze-Dixièmes, our core value resides in the freedom to explore new visuals and narratives. This is precisely what we found with Focus.”

“Supporting the French indie game development scene has long been a part of the Focus DNA, and is an important aspect of our strategy. So it’s with great pleasure that we announce this new partnership,” declared John Bert, COO at Focus Home Interactive. “It was immediately apparent that the Douze-Dixièmes team shares our values, and we are more than excited to start a new adventure with such a talented team.”

"It is a real pleasure to welcome Douze Dixièmes to the Focus family," said Christophe Nobileau, President of Focus Home Interactive. “The studio has already demonstrated its creative ability with Shady Part of Me, and we are delighted that the Douze Dixièmes team is joining our federation of talents. This acquisition once again demonstrates our ambition to create a strong Group, but also illustrates Focus's desire to support the French video game scene, a major focus of our editorial strategy.”

“It is with great excitement and pride that we join Focus Home Interactive today,” said George Herrmann, Co-Founder and Chairman of Douze Dixièmes. “Our collaboration on Shady Part of Me convinced us of the expertise of the teams and the great human wealth of Focus. It is full of ideas and with the conviction that we can achieve our vision that we join this growing Group. There is no doubt for Douze Dixièmes that the synergies with the other studios of our new family will bring strength and relevance to our projects, while preserving our quest for engaging visual and narrative experiences."

Having released Shady Part Of Me in 2020, Douze Dixièmes is currently working on its next game.
