Shen Technologies SARL was a developer in Paris, France, with roots in Constellations, an Atari ST demogroup that included programmer Elysée Adé. Adé was able to obtain an Atari Jaguar development kit through the company Virtual Xpérience, and subsequently he and his team were able to make the racing game Super Burnout. With the money they were paid prior to its release, they founded Shen. After developing two soccer games for the PlayStation, it shut down by the end of 1998.
