Message from Yohei Sadoshima, CEO of Cork, Inc.
I’m excited about the opportunity to create webtoon content with a company like IzanagiGames that is constantly seeking new avenues and possibilities for games. Personally, I’ve always thought that webtoons fall somewhere between conventional manga and games in terms of the creation process. We’re looking forward to all the new challenges we’d never have been able to embark upon without support from IzanagiGames.
Message from Shinsuke Umeda, Producer/CEO of IzanagiGames, Inc.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve received funding from Cork, Inc. and entered into a business partnership. During our weekly meetings, I’m always amazed by Sadoshima’s extraordinary passion for engaging stories, scenarios, and content creation in the broader sense, not to mention his logical approach to realizing concepts. This business partnership will allow us to work closer with Sadoshima and the Cork team and further improve the quality of IzanagiGames’ game and webtoon content, helping us to develop as a company.
