The secret of the unicorn.

Legendary creatures, there are hundreds. From the Cyclope to Centaures by passing Charybde and Scylla or the Minotaur, there are all sizes, all colors and obediences. However, if there is a creature who has preserved a cult even in the 21st century, it is the unicorn.

Mixture of oral and written traditions, it is neither creator of world nor from Greek or Roman mythology and even less related to heroic gestures. As a result, drawing a history of the appearance of the unicorn is eminently complex.

The video game is not left out with various fantasy games that seize this animal (World of Warcraft, Oblivion) ​​but also more surprising proposals like a mount in assassins Creed or the very psychedelic robot Unicorn Attack.



Finally, hard not to evoke this monument of the toy, become a compressor roll that has passed in all the children's rooms, on the small and large screens, game cartridges then CD, smartphone: My Little Pony.
