This series is noteworthy first of all because it is the best-selling and top award-winning series of French video games.
The series can be split in two: three "core games" and two "distant sequels".
The three core games (Another World, Flashback, Heart of Darkness) feature many elements in common: same authors, similar gameplay, similar "feeling" to the game. They are considered "spiritual sequels" to each other.
The two distant sequels are direct sequels of two core games, but they have less elements in common with their predecessors. In particular, Heart of the Alien was developed by a completely different team and has a very different feeling to the game. Instead, Fade to Black shares the authors and game feeling of its predecessor, but has a very different gameplay.
