About Pipette Inc
My name is Thierry and I’m an independent game developer from Brussels, Belgium. One year and a half ago, I asked myself what I could to do to make the world a better place. I decided to use my games to relay progressive values. Why? Because I believe that to counter hateful speeches and right-wing rhetoric, you need to propose better ideas to the widest audience possible.
And what better medium to do this than video games? They allow to explain complex problematic in an interactive way, and make players face the consequences of their actions. Plus, game development is my passion, so it was a no brainer.
Since then, a lot of things happened. Scandals, protests, bombings -sometimes close to home- elections… Some made the game look more like a documentary than a dystopian fiction. But they also reinforced my conviction.
Pipette Inc. will only produce games containing a meaningful critic of society. Here are the values that the studio will defend and promote:
Let’s stop discriminating people based on their race, gender or sexuality.
Society should work for all of us, not just a greedy minority.
Climate change is real. Let's deal with it!
We should always oppose fascism.
