I don't have much info about the author Bruno Fonters, but he produced three adventure games that were a tribute to the French software house Lankhor (and in fact, a few people, including me, initially thought they were the work of Lankhor themselves :-[):
The quality of the graphics is astounding! 8)

According to a post on a French abandonware forum, he was only 16 years old when he produced the games. He didn't distribute them at the time but they somehow made their way into the CPC community around 1997.

Many thanks for the info @Nich , those games look marvelous and indeed would easily pass as the product of a team working at a software house :)
