At the end of 1996 Magelis released a second
CD-ROM, called Charivari de Chat-Malô - the Mousewitch.
It is a story about a village of cats, for children aged from 3 to
7. Charivari is a brave little cat, who has to rescue his friend, Charlotte,
from the claws of the wicked Mousewitch who has imprisoned her in an enchanted
forest. Pedagogical games and activities make up a seamless part of the
narrative, and in this way the player takes an operational role in resolving
the intrigue, leading to a very strong identification between the young
audience and Charivari.
The CD-ROM was coproduced by Magelis and the European Investment Club,
an organisation emanating from the European Commission, which promoted
The Mousewitch was distributed by Ubisoft until 2001, and though it
benefited from insufficient marketing means, sold over 10 000 copies,
notably in the French Fnac stores. It received a "Faust" Bronze
trophy in Toulouse.
The following people worked on the CD-ROM: Laure Calandre, Martin Faynot,
Marc Khanne, Sylvie Rabie and Joseph Rabie.
