About ONI (working title)’s Development
This game was developed by the up-and-coming studio KENEI DESIGN.
After designing artwork for Mistwalker, developer of TERRA BATTLE and FANTASIAN, KENEI STUDIO’s president, Kenei Hayama, decided to go solo. After assembling a dev team and creating his own style of games, Mr. Hayama's exceptional design skills caught the attention of the SHUEISHA Game Creators Camp staff, and ONI was officially selected for their project.
In addition, Masami Yamamoto has joined the project as a producer. Mr. Yamamoto presided over the creator auditions for Let's Play Games! 2006 and PlayStation C.A.M.P. held at Sony Interactive Entertainment and has been involved in numerous unique projects such as the What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord? series and TOKYO JUNGLE. After he left the company to start his own, EPIGRAsm Inc., he was offered the position of producer for ONI by Mr. Hayama. Mr. Yamamoto also became an executive advisor for the SHUEISHA Game Creators Camp, taking on a new challenge in the field of indie games.
