Good Evening,

This game was something both different and similar to one I have played before. It differed in that it showed the desperation in which soldiers felt necessary to act upon. Despite the game being told in french, I was able to translate a very large portion of it and relay it in my video. I absolutely love this kind of game because it has great mechanics, natural sounds, and a message the player is able to relate to or find deeper meaning behind. It is similar to the game I reference in that it as well depicts the trench warfare of another side of the war. World War One was a phenomenon that shook the world, as nothing of the scale had occurred before. This is something that amplified the impact of WWII much later on. This game has a message of war, the lengths which men are willing to go to in order to survive. The art style is unique, it gave me a very fresh experience that I admire. I am glad I was able to play this as it has given me even more perspective on the topic as a whole. I love this game, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I had.

Hello Hayden,

Thank you very much for your comment. We've read and watched your whole review and cannot express enough how happy we are that you enjoyed Le Feu!

This was a student project made for tablets. As we didn't have a lot of time, we've made a fast port to Windows and Mac and had not the time to check on the bugs... Unfortunately some interactions are missing as you noticed (such as the dialogues with the two morrocan soldiers in the first trench, or the sentinel who's peeking above the trench).

If you want to see the missing parts I invite you to take a quick look at the full gameplay video (there are english subtitles)

Thank you again,
