Onion Games

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Onion Games K.K., doing business as Onion Games, is a Japanese independent game developer. It was founded by Love-de-Lic alumni and Punchline founder Yoshiro Kimura.

History[edit]

Onion Games was established in 2013 by Yoshiro Kimura[1] with collaborators from his career's history, including from previous employer Love-de-Lic, art director Kurashima Kazuyuki[2] and from Love-de-Lic, Chulip composer and sound designer Hirofumi Taniguchi. [3]

In late 2019, Onion Games announced via their blog that the 1997 Love-de-Lic game Moon, developed in part by then-current Onion Games members, would be re-released by Onion Games on Nintendo Switch, this time including an English language localization.[4] Moon had, at its initial release, been slated for an English language release, but was cancelled for reasons unknown even to Kimura after it had reached a playable state.[5]

In December 2020, Onion Games announced that work had begun on a new sandbox RPG similar to Moon and Chulip.[6] Yoshiro Kimura expressed in the first press release that through the development of his previous titles he found a determination to create a new sandbox RPG, despite the development difficulty relative to other types of games, and despite his feeling that he would grow too old to make such games.[7]
