Developer Biography

Hiroyuki Kanno (菅野 ひろゆき, 8 May 1968 - 19 December 2011) was a Japanese game designer from Tokyo. He is best known for his work on eroge adventures, including Desire (1994), Eve Burst Error (1995), and Yu-No (1996), all of which were later ported to console systems with adult content removed.

During his school years Kanno liked reading detective mystery and sci-fi novels, and was particularly influenced by the work of Isaac Asimov. These styles inspired his later adventure game scenarios, which feature sci-fi themes alongside a detective mystery structure.

After graduating from Chuo University, Kanno joined Himeya Soft and worked on adult adventure games released under C's Ware brand. After a short stay with Elf, Kanno founded his own company Abel and moved on to design Exodus Guilty (1998), Card of Destiny (2000), Mystereet (2004), and other games.
