Asterix and Obelix licensees
Group DescriptionGames based on the French comic series written by René Goscinny and written and illustrated by Albert Uderzo, featuring the fictional Gaulish warrior Asterix, introduced in 1959 as Astérix le Gaulois (Asterix the Gaul).
The games revolve around the heroic adventures of Asterix and his sidekick Obelix, the menhir delivery man assisted by the valiant Dogmatix, his dog protecting the only Gaulish village (with no name and located in the northwest corner of Gaul) unconquered by Roman conquest under Julius Caesar, with the help of the 'magic potion' brewed by the village druid, Getafix. In the original French series , this 'magic potion' makes the people who drink it invincible - that what's stated in the first comics anyway, though things are not so clear anymore in 'Asterix and the laurel wreath', where Asterix claims that 'the magic potion makes [them] very strong but not invulnerable'. Truth is: none of the two heroes is ever wounded in any way during the entire series. Obelix is so strong because he fell into the magic potion's brewing pot while he was a little child, which made him permanently invincible. Of course, in the videogame, Asterix and Obelix are not invincible anymore but simply very strong - or else, there wouldn't be much of a challenge.
