Developer Biography

Shingo Kuwana (桑名真吾, born 1968) is a game designer and businessman from Saitama, Japan. He joined Data East in 1989 as a planner, notably leading the design of the Joe & Mac series. In 1993, he left Data East to work freelance, and oversaw the design of Dragon Force under contract with J-Force until that company's bankruptcy in 1994.

In October 1994, Kuwana established the development studio Idea Factory, and would soon after recruit much of the Dragon Force team from the now defunct J-Force. Today, he is still the president of Idea Factory, and is also a board member of subsidiary Design Factory.
