Comments from the staff:

 

Programming

Ryuji Nishikawa

I feel like the best part of development is that everyone, all the way up to the president, is determined to make something great, and that my work toward that is recognized. Q-Games is the kind of company where this happens.

 

Programming 

Jerome Liard 

It’s been 14 years since I started at Q-Games, and the time has flown by. You only live once, so why not spend your life somewhere interesting? To me, Q-Games is that place. I love being in an environment where high skills are valued and needed, and because of our small size and development time frame, I never get bored. I look forward to my future with Q-Games.

 

Production

Kensaku Nakata

Q-Games is a place where real artists have come together to make really enjoyable games. We challenge and stimulate each other’s creativity to make the best, and it’s an environment for creation in which tradition, culture, evolution, and technology are always present.

 

Game Designer 

Kazushi Maeta 

At Q-Games, I have a lot of opportunities to work with lots of amazing people. I get lots of stimulation from both inside and outside the company, and the great thing about Q-Games is that I can use that to make games. My goal is to keep using my experience and knowledge to make games that are fun to play.

 

Art

Yutaka Kurahashi

I’ve been involved in lots of projects at Q-Games, and they were all fulfilling. However, that doesn’t mean I’m complacent, and I’ve learned that it’s important to always aim to create great games.
