OverviewGaram & Baram (가람과 바람, literally "River and Wind") was a South Korean computer game developer. It was initially a pseudonym of Kim MuKwang, who worked on homebrew games in the early 1990s. The team was formed around 1995, when Kim ByungChul and other programmers joined.
The team was hired by Kama Digital Entertainment to work on their first completed project, Leithian (1999) . They had to work in a basement (once narrowly escaping a flood) and were pressured to release the game before it was fully tested. The game was later translated and published in Japan and China, but the team sought independence and became a company in April 1999, a month after the release of Leithian.
Low sales figures following the release of Seal: Travelers of Destiny (2000) put an end to the small company's independence. Garam & Baram joined Grigon Entertainment in May 2001 as its second development team (after MiraSpace). There, under improved working conditions, they completed Narsillion (2002).
The team was supposed to work on the 3D action game Shadow together with MiraSpace, but the project was never finished. By 2004 the team was effectively dissolved, its members integrated with Grigon's core employees. Most key people have left to found new companies or pursue other interests, except Kim Byungchul, who stayed with Grigon until its closure in 2009.
