Bomb’X, Dal’X, Arcad’X, Castle’X history

We just discussed these on a podcast. Does anyone know more about the background? How and why did this bizarre series get made?

Bomb’X: http://hol.abime.net/4376

Bomb’X screenshot from HOL attached.

Also, what is Castle’X? I could not find a single screenshot.

I would guess that Arcad’X is based on the Nicky Boom Engine, but it is just a guess from the way it looks and scrolls on YouTube.

I dunno... I reckon you need something a bit stronger than alcohol to come up with a game like that...

Castle'X: you can find screenshots (and the game) there:
https://www.abandonware-france.org/l...jeu.php?id=554

It is described as a very average adventure game.

A quick search online (in French) about Mediagogo/Bomb'x/Fabrice Decroix didn't turn anything interesting. Maybe some French magazines of the time might have more information?
