    4/28/2006 Quantic dream ne dit pas Wii !!! (French)
    Enfin, j'ai été attrister d'apprendre à l'époque l'annulation du projet Quark (qui paraissait particulièrement enchanteur).
    Mais recement dans une interview (vue sur IGN) j'ai appris que ce projet vous tenait a coeur et que vous aviez bon espoir de le rependre.
    Est-ce reveur d'esperer le voir apparaitre sur la nouvelle génération (encore un fois plus particulièrement sur la Nintendo revolution, car ce projet me semble aller de pair avec la vision de Nintendo: onirique, fun mais pas forcement violent).

    3/06/2005 Interview with 2D awarded graphics artist Thierry " Barontieri " Doizon (English, Japanese)
    Few years ago, I worked on a project named Quark (Quantic Dream), it was an 8 months preproduction for a game that never came out, but we did a very interesting job to create a fantasy world with its own customs, culture, religion, biodiversity and ethnies. It was a great experience!


    2004


    12/21/2004 JeuxVideo: David Cage est ici (French)
    Quark est un projet que toute l´équipe de Quantic apprécie particulièrement. C´était un jeu " Cute" de type action/aventure/RPG qu´on souhaitait lancer après Nomad Soul. Même si le jeu était vraiment innovant, il y a eu malheureusement beaucoup de jeux dans ce genre et Quark n´a pas pu voir le jour. On le garde dans les cartons, on le sortira un jour...


    2002


    2/25/2002 RPG France Interview Fahrenheit (French)
    Fahrenheit et notre nouvelle génération de technologies ICE nous a obligé à mettre en stand-by les autres projets en cours, y compris Quark. J'ai bon espoir de voir reprendre le développement de ce projet très prochainement. L'équipe et moi-même y sommes particulièrement attachés.


    2001


    10/12/2001 Gamespot: Q&A: Quantic Dream (English)
    Quark is on hold for a while, as Fahrenheit quickly became the first priority. We are still considering Quark as a possible project in a very near future.


    2000


    6/21/2000 Quark (Swedish)
    Franska utvecklare verkar kunna komma upp med de mest intressanta spelmixarna/idéerna och om de första skärmdumparna och bilderna från Quark är någonting att gå efter så verkar det här vara någonting alldeles speciellt. Quantic Dream kanske inte är ett välkänt namn, men med titlar under bältet som Omikron så är de inte bara teknologiskt långt fram utan kan producera spel med ett enormt djup både när det gäller detaljer och originella spelkoncept.


    4/07/2000 SwampBug interview Big Boss (English)
    Q: How completed is quark and when can we expect to see this really cool looking game?
    A: Quark is really at the start. You won't see it before 18 months.


    4/04/2000 Наш собеседник -- архитектор города Омикрон (Russian)
    На мой взгляд, очень оригинальные идеи заложены в игре Quark. Эта забавная адвентюра некоторым, возможно, напомнит знаменитую Zelda. Как я уже сказал, рассчитана она будет на консоли нового поколения Sony Playstation 2 и Dreamcast. Но говорить о ней подробно еще слишком рано.


    3/22/2000 IGN Quark Preview (English).
    With the upcoming Dreamcast game Quark in development, there is a sense of excitement that this ambitious and idealistic development house might be onto something. These guys want to make games that play like interactive movies. Now, before you reach for that Back button, this doesn't mean cheesy video sequences. When Omikron worked, it worked well. And Quantic Dream's CEO David Cage says lessons have been learned.

    1/03/2000 (Game)Land: Quark Preview (Russian)
    В новой игре от Quantic Dream используется старый движок, который был разработан для Omikron: The Nomad Soul. Разумеется, разработчики немного обновили моторчик новой игры, что позволило им говорить о том, что Quark создается с помощью "уникальных технологий, способных создать не то что фэнтези мир, но и самую натуральную Вселенную". То, что, по мнению работников Quantic Dream, является точным отражением окружающей нас с вами объективной реальности, вы можете увидеть на скриншотах, приведенных в данной статье. Стоит отметить, что это кадры только из PC-версии будущей игры. Но разработчики утверждают, что Quark на Dreamcast будет выглядеть точно так же. И я не берусь однозначно судить о том, хорошо это или плохо.
