In its beginnings, it sponsored a national programming contest in Japan. This brought out 300 different programmers, two notable programmers were Koichi Nakamura and Yuji Horii . Koichi Nakamura won the contest with the game called Door Door , and Enix published the game. Koichi Nakamura and Yuji Horii then started working together by founding Chunsoft . This company is best known for developing the Dragon Quest series of games that Enix is best known for publishing.
