Ketchup noodles, AS3, making scary jokes (i.e : “I broke everything”)

He plays tons of videogames, to the dismay of his Steam account and wallet. His favorite games are, in no particular order : Dark Age of Camelot, World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Portal, Left 4 Dead.
His sister Ley was an admin during the early days of Transformice’s life, helping with hirings the first moderators. She since left, in order to take care of her newborn.

Lead Server Programmer
Throwing plushies back, being quiet, making nice figures with his metallic bucky balls

Brazilian & Spanish Community Manager
Being always super happy
Galaktine was born on August the 29th of 1980, and takes care of the huge Brazilian Community. Like her fellow Community Managers, she has to manage moderators, answer emails, and keep an eye on the forums to bring us the problems the brazilian players might encounter. She’s overall a very joyful person, and interacts a lot with her community.
Narayan was born on June the 5th of 1984, and is an awesome multi-tasking dev. His skills range goes from developing useful tools for us to use locally, to coding a whole forums solution from scratch. He also has the hidden ability to look quite handsome on every single picture taken of him.
He also likes turtles.
Chief Financial Officer
Swimming in numbers
Larirette was born on January the 3rd of 1967, making her the caring mother of everyone at Atelier 801. She seems to master black magic when handling very intricate numbers on financial reports, but also takes care of every little task that us geeks tend to forget about (like, insurances, or… taxes)
Nonetheless, she’s a real geek at heart herself, and enjoys a lot being around silly nerds like us.
2D & Concept Artist
Not much is known about this mysterious graphic designer. The most shy of us all, he’s in charge of many designs of Fortoresse and Dead Maze.
Decryption of Tig’s code
Pikashu was born on January the 12th of 1990, and he is dedicated to Transformice! He was a mod for most of Transformice’s life, and recently was hired among us to fix all the bugs and code the new features \o/
He’s shy but fearless in front of Tig’s code, making him a real development ninja!
International Community Manager
Zou (from her second name Arzu) was born on April the 12th of 1989, and replaced Sydoline for the community management of international communities. She speaks three languages fluently (French, English and Turkish), is a vegetarian, and often changes her hair color, based on her mood. She’s very joyful and daring, but somehow manages to focus all her energy into knitting when she wants to.
English & French Community Manager
Staying zen in all circumstances, being shy, cookies
Sydoline (or Sydo for short) was born on June the 29th of 1990, and took care of everything community-related. From organizing events to managing the moderation team, she worked a lot to make Transformice a better and safer place to be at.
Among weird things, she doesn’t like chocolate, but likes to bake cookies. She’s an overall adorable, very shy person, and soothes anyone working around her with her omnious zenitude. We are very grateful for all she did at Atelier 801.
Phoning master, understanding law talking, soup-like mashed potatoes
Loukno (no short name this time) was born on August the 6th of 1989, and took care of everything marketing-related, like ads sales, IRL events, or answering the phone. She was contaminated by Sydoline’s tendency for sweets, and they used to steal regularly from each other’s desks for sugar treats.
System and Network Administrator
Mickaelsan was born on December the 10th of 1981, and was taking care of everything concerning our servers. Updating them, cleaning them, monitoring them, plugging some cables in their… hum.
He’s also an Apple evangelist and it leaded to many heated debates in the office.
Maharadjah was born on May the 21th of 1991, and was in charge of many graphic assets in all the games. She draws a lot of dragons and dinosaurs, making Tig nag her everytime she didn’t.
Spanish Community Manager
Forgetting everything, eating weird stuff, slowpoke
Kura was born on March the 29th of 1983, and took care of the spanish-speaking Community. He was in charge of hiring new moderators, talking with players, and is a pretty good artist, among being an gigantic troll sometimes. Having Tig and Kura trolling each other in the office could be very dangerous.
Turkish Community Manager
Being shy, not eating much
Vanlu was born on October the 10th of 1983, and took care of the Turkish Community. He had to manage the forums, hire new mods, answer emails, and overall was a real help for us to understand our Turkish community.
