Twinsun Frederic Raynal-The Legend



Career:
Frederic Raynal was born in 1966 in Brive-la-Gaillarde, Corrèze (France).[1] Beginning in his highschool years, Raynal made early LED games including Laser (1979) for the ZX81. Shifting to software programming and working at his father's computer shop, Raynal's first commercial game, Robix 500 (1983), sold around 80 copies. During his time working here, Raynal produced graphics for PopCorn (1988), which was only a moderate commercial success.
After joining the infant Infogrames he ported Alpha Waves (1990), a game which pushed new boundaries in gaming and is considered the first true 3D platform game. The port, from Atari ST to DOS, was actually a complete rewrite in C of the original Motorola 68000 assembly language code written by Christophe de Dinechin, after Raynal convinced Infogrames to make an exception to their policy of not porting assembly-language games.
Convinced by his experience with Alpha-Waves that the time was ripe for 3D graphics,[2][3] he and his team soon went on to produce Alone in the Dark (1992), and worked on parts of the direct sequel (Alone in the Dark 2) before leaving the company. The games were very influential on the gaming industry in general, and on the growth and success of Infogrames in particular.
