Loriciel (also sometimes Loriciels) was a French video game developing company that was active from 1983 to the early 1990s. The name is a combination of logiciel, the French word for software, and Oric which was the first computer they wrote software for.

During the 1980s, they developed games for various systems (Oric 1, ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Thomson computers and the Atari ST). The first game that Loriciel developed was Hubert for the Commodore 64. They managed to publish 150 different games within their short lifespan as a company. While several attempts were made to revive the company (first as Loriciel then Virtual Studio[1][2]), financial difficulties would force this company to shut down after developing Tommy Moe's Winter Extreme: Skiing & Snowboarding for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
