is a French video game development studio based in Paris. Its first game, Remember Me, was published by Capcom released on 7 June 2013.
Dontnod Entertainment was co-founded by Hervé Bonin, Aleksi Briclot, Alain Damasio, Oskar Guilbert and Jean-Maxime Moris in June 2008 along with other ex-Criterion, Ubisoft and EA staff.
The first game the developers released was Remember Me, which garnered mixed to positive reviews from critics and users. During development of the game the developers faced difficulty in finding a publisher who was happy to publish a game with a female lead character, with some saying the lead character needed to be male for it to succeed.
On 31 January 2014, French media outlets and gaming websites reported that Dontnod was filing for bankruptcy as a result of the poor sales of Remember Me. Dontnod responded to these reports explaining that the developer was in the process of "judicial reorganization". The company turned to public funding to finance a new intellectual property called What If? as a result of this.
On 5 June 2014, Dontnod announced that they were working on a new game with publisher Square Enix to be distributed digitally. The game was later announced to be called Life Is Strange, and was released in 2015. What If was revealed to be an early codename for the game. As of November 2014, the studio has begun work on a third title, a role-playing game called Vampyr.
