Welcome to Sylvain Vignaud's web page
My name is Sylvain Vignaud and I'm a programmer working on real time 3D application such as video games and simulators.
I worked on several games from the Star Wars, Prince of Persia, Your Shape Fitness Evolved licenses; and from now on the next BioWare games. Here's the list of video games I worked on, ranging from strategy to management and platform/action, running on handheld, salon consoles and PC.
