Founder & Executive Director
Luc Bernard is a French Jewish video game creator and director. Known for his game The Light in the Darkness, which has received rave reviews across the globe, Luc is changing the way people view video games and Jewish history. With an insight on Jewish culture and a realism that has never been seen with in a game, The Light in the Darkness tells a moving story of a fictional family of Polish Jews caught up in the Holocaust in France. The game has gone on to be dubbed in different languages around the world.
Luc’s most recent accomplishment is the inclusion of a Holocaust Museum into gaming juggernaut Epics Fortnite, changing the way people play and watch videogames.
Born in France and raised in poverty between France and the UK by his grandmother, Luc knew there was more for himself and his Jewish culture.
By 16 he was making games and had his sights set on the American Dream. He went from living in France to living in Los Angeles, pursuing his gaming career.
Known as a thought leader and a disrupter in the space, Luc wanted to do things his way: he self-financed his passion, believing he had a duty to share the stories of the 6 million Jews and who they were as people, not just what their death was. Luc released the game for free — and the game has seen massive success. The Economist said, “It makes for sobering gameplay, though that’s the point. Bernard wanted to show that for Jews survival was just a matter of luck. He hopes that his creation will be used as a teaching resource for young people for years to come.” Luc is represented by UTA and lives in Los Angeles.
