The company's founder, Stéphane Baudet, is a racing expert. He has been working on racing games since 1997, when V-Rally was launched on Playstation. He has directed productions for and with the biggest publishers (Atari, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts...).
He created the Eden Games studio in 1998, where he developed two V-Rally games (2 and 3), as well as Need for Speed Porsche. The studio was then bought by Infogrames/Atari in 2006. He developed the Test Drive Unlimited project in-house, the first major multiplayer racing game.
After 6 years as director of the Ubisoft Annecy studio, Stéphane Baudet has notably developed the multiplayer part of Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood with his team in collaboration with the Montreal and Chinese studios.
Stéphane Baudet invested very early in the "mobile" platform, working in particular with Behaviour and Nvizzio in Canada on the free-to-play (F2P) games Fallout Shelter and Roller Coaster Tycoon Touch. Responsible for the free-to-play aspects of the Fallout Shelter project at Behaviour Interactive, he accompanied the independent launch and helped the game achieve remarkable success (50 million downloads and more than $100 million in revenue).
Back in France since 2017, he created The Tiny Digital Factory to carry out his development, consulting and publishing activities. He co-developed with his original studio Eden Games (taken over in 2015 by David Nadal) and Codemasters the game F1 Mobile Racing, a racing game based on the official Formula 1 license.
Originally created in Montreal by Stéphane Baudet in 2017, the studio developed its activities and now also operates in Lyon, a central hub in Europe for video games. The staff includes more than 30 people today.
Stéphane Baudet, CEO and Creative Director of TDF, is supported in the development of the company by Olivier Raffard, a specialist in car manufacturer licensing, and Pierre Carde, an expert in international business development, as well as by a team of professionals with over 40 years of experience in the industry.
The team is structured around TDF's two core businesses: The development and management of online games (Live Ops).
