Quantic Dream Founder to Receive Legion of Honour Award

February 18, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Quantic Dream founder David Cage will receive the French la Légion d'honneur aka the "Legion of Honour" award in a ceremony on March 13, according to Le Figaro. Cage is the first game developer to receive this honor, joining a host of celebrities and athletes including poet and novelist Jean Cocteau, actor Sean Connery, and Arsenal Football Club Manager Arsène Wenger.

The award was created by Napoleon Bonaparte and is the highest honor one can get in France. Cage will be presented with the award by Fleur Pellerin, Minister Delegate for SMEs, Innovation and the Digital Economy.

Quantic Dream's most recent game was Beyond: Two Souls, but the company is also known for creating Heavy Rain, Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy in North America), and Omikron: The Nomad Soul.

Re: Quantic Dream Founder to Receive Legion of Honour Award

I assume he got the award for charity work or something? Maybe he set up some fancy digital transaction tech for Medecins Sans Frontieres donations? If it's for his "games" then I'm somewhat puzzled.
