La 6eme Piste is an obscure and forgotten FMV game. My guess is probably because it was never released outside France. Heck, I’m still not sure if it was released at all. The game had quite a big budget, estimated at 30 million francs (cca. 5mil. Euro?) and with some serious production values. It was supposed to be released also in the movie theaters, DVD and if my “google translate fu” is correct also as video on demand over the cable TV.1 I have decided to show an introduction cinematic. The game looks like a detective TV show from 1990ties and I don’t mean it as an insult but as a statement of fact. What it makes really worth seeing is the list of actors hired in the production. Some of them are more or less known only in France, but I would certainly not expect Louise Fletcher starring in French video game production. For those who don’t know who she is, Louise Fletcher got an Oscar for playing the nasty nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
