Coktel Vision (also known as Coktel or Coktel Studio) was a French video game publisher based in Paris. The company was founded in 1984 by Roland Oskian, a former executive of Matra Espace.[1] The company was acquired by American publisher Sierra On-Line on 4 May 1994.[1] On 21 February 1996, Sierra On-Line, including Coktel Vision, was acquired by CUC International and became part of CUC's new CUC Software (later renamed Vivendi Universal Games) branch.[2] Vivendi Universal Games proceeded to sell Coktel Vision to Mindscape on 21 October 2005, wherein eleven employees were absorbed into Mindscape.[3] The Coktel brand name however was retained by Mindscape many years afterwards.
