COMPANY PROFILE

MESSAGE
A new kind of excitement for everyone

indieszero’s goal is to “put a smile on everyone’s face” through our gaming experience. That smile is what makes us creators smile. And if we can make things with a smile on our face, we can surely create games that make everyone who plays them smile as well.

At the time of our founding, no one knew our name or brand, and we were truly an indie company just starting out on our own. The name indieszero comes from the word “indies” and reflects the strength of the word “zero” in its meaning as an origin point and our start from scratch.

In addition to the image of building up ideas from scratch, the word zero also means infinite, so we hope to connect with people around the world through gaming experiences. The word zero, which means “you can go anywhere from here,” has a sense of transparency similar to that of a pure white canvas. This idea, combined with our various aspirations for creating things, led us to the name indieszero.

We have been developing a wide variety of games, regardless of genre, always in search of new and interesting features. In order to deliver fresh excitement to as many customers as possible, we are strongly committed to “novelty,” “playability” and “ease of understanding” in each title. We come up with ideas in a flexible manner and bring them to life.

We wish to continue our commitment to developing games while valuing our connections with everyone.
