LOU LUBIE : The Lamplighter


The Little Prince is a classic that has inspired the director, the storyteller, the musician, the graphic artist, the choreographer… and now the video game designer! The designer in question is Lou Lubie. She is 19, a student of game design, and she has just designed a video game set in the world of the Little Prince.
