About the author, Mia Blais-Côté:
Mia Blais-Côté is a 28 years old young woman from Quebec. She’s live at Sept-Îles and she was diagnostic with autism at 18 years old. It causes a lot of changes in her life, but it did not affect her love for writing, video games, and narrative-based games. Mia had noticed there are way too few video games that talk about autism. Since she’s autistic as well, she wanted to talk about that topic in a “story-type” game, a Visual Novel. However, she did not wanted the game to be too “educational”, “overdramatic” and “boring”. She wanted a universal story anyone could enjoy. Les Quatre Alices | The Four Alices is her first commercial project on Steam. It’s aimed at Visual Novel fans, causal gamers and peoples who want to learn more about autism while reading a good story.
