Just as “Create” is in the nature of the word “creature,” creators, creations, and creativity are part of our nature at Creatures. What kind of company does Creatures strive to be? A company where creators live fulfilling lives, channeling their experiences into their own creations. We strive to be a place where creators inspire and nurture creativity within each other, helping one another to grow. I suppose it is those aspirations that make us who we are as a company.
In 2017, although a bit more luxurious than what we’re used to, we decided to move our headquarters to a larger office located in Iidabashi in Tokyo. The pleasantness of the area washed over us, reinvigorating the atmosphere within our company. As we continue moving forward in step with Pokemon, we are committed to pursuing new challenges along the way. This is Creatures Inc., and this is our story.
As one of the licensors of the Pokémon franchise, we are mainly involved in the development of Pokémon products. As a result, our workflow is greatly influenced by the release cycles of new Pokémon titles. Relying on any sole pillar of our business would leave us at the mercy of that one component's ups and downs. The lack of wiggle room creativity-wise would breed an atmosphere where it’s become difficult for new ideas to blossom and take shape. This can be fatal for a development company. Currently, Creatures is supported by three pillars, trading card game development, digital game development, and 3DCG production. Each pillar has a distinct “personality” that I believe directly contributes to the stability of our company, giving Creatures its own distinct personality and characteristics. Furthermore, I feel the three pillars complement each other, creating a synergy at Creatures.
Creatures plans to continue offering services and products that bring smiles to the faces of everyone. To that end, we need people who want to create while enjoying life. Please look forward to what Creatures has in store for the future.
