Gust Corporation (株式会社ガスト Kabushiki-gaisha Gasuto?) is a Japanese developer and publisher of game software titles, known for their Atelier and Ar tonelico series.

Company[edit | edit source]

Gust Corporation was founded in 1993 in Nagano, Japan, as the first game software house in Nagano Prefecture. The company began by creating dôjinshi games for personal computers. Its first project was Story of King Ares (アレス王の物語) for the NEC personal computer. In 1994 the company became an official developer for the Sony PlayStation video game console, and its first PlayStation product was the simulation game Falkata (ファルカタ). In 1997, Gust released Atelier Marie, the first game in the long-running, popular, and iconic Atelier series. Since then the company has released several successful games for various home and portable video game systems.

Games[edit | edit source]

Gust games are known for their alchemy and item-crafting systems, distinctive character designs, and traditional or "old-school" graphical and storytelling style. In Japan, Gust has published its own games or cooperated with Banpresto. In North America, Gust games are published by NIS America.
