Thanks for visiting Japanime Games! We recently celebrated 10 years of bringing games from around the world to the best fans in the world, and we're looking forward to more!
My name is Eric Price, and I’m the Owner, President and Commander-In-Chief of Japanime Games. My history in the gaming industry dates all the way back to 1992 when I owned a comic book store in the Seattle area. When Magic: The Gathering was released in 1993, I shifted to card games, which led to years of buying and selling Magic, Pokémon, and even Yu-Gi-Oh! cards throughout the US and Japan, through my retail company, Cardhaus Games.
Years later, at a dinner meeting on one of my many trips to Japan, Mr. Fukomoto of Arclight Games asked me if I would be interested in producing an English language edition of his card game, Tanto Cuore. I had no plans at this time to publish games; it seemed like a lot of work to me.
When I got back home from that trip, I asked many of my friends what they thought about a card game about maids. The response was very mixed, to say the least! I thought about it quite a lot, and decided to go for it! It turns out that we enjoy playing with Japanese maids; the theme is different, but most importantly, the game itself is really fun, well-designed and balanced, and the art is absolutely amazing.
This was the beginning of Japanime Games.
