Glodia (グローディア¨)

Osamu Ikegame, a Telenet programmer, founded Glodia and became it's president in 1986. Together with two other Telenet employees: Nobuhito Koise (Composer) and Hiroyuki Kuwata (Programmer) among others, he created Glodia's first game, Lyrane. Right Stuff, another Japanese developer, is closely related to Glodia.


Glodia finished their first game, Lyrane, in December 1986. They continued to develop games until 1995, when Etemiburu was released. None of their games were released outside Japan, but they were rather successfull there. Emerald Dragon, Zavas, Die BahnWelt and Vain Dream are all classics of the '90 Japanese gaming scene.
