What The Creator Of Steambot Chronicles Has Been Doing All These Months


granzilla5You may recall Kazuma Kujo, creator of the cult hit Disaster Report and Steambot Chronicles, left Irem. He’s now a co-founder of Granzella and the Kanazawa-based developer is about to release their first project.


Great Edo of Nippon is an Edo-era PlayStation Home lounge. The virtual space has a shop with kimonos, samurai clothes, and hairstyles from the period. Granzella opened the lounge in Japan today. They plan to bring the lounge to Europe and North America at a later date.

Granzella plans on producing games for a worldwide audience too. What kind of games? According to their company’s concept page:

– Controversial games
– Games that strongly interest people, even if they have some weaknesses.
– Games in which players can reflect their own feelings, instead of games for which players have no choices and have to follow predetermined rules and paths.
– Games and experiences that give excitement to both players and creators at the same time.
– Games that are a great alternative when main stream games and entertainment start to lose their appeal.
