Developer Biography

Kentaro Yoshida is the studio director of Q-Games. Previously he worked as an artist for SEGA on Panzer Dragoon Orta.

After working on as a graphic designer on Panic! (1993) he began his career in game design on the Panzer Dragoon series. It was shortly after leaving Sony and going back to work for Sega that he joined the team developing Orta. Because he had only returned to the company, his duties were on low-level 3D graphics design, and processes that were rather new at the time, such as modeling, creating textures and animations.

Around the time that he left SEGA for Sony, Dylan Cuthbert, president of Q-Games, was working on a demonstration of the hardware capabilities of the PlayStation 2. He was put in charge of the graphics for the duck demo, which was how they met. Later on he heard that Dylan had created a game studio in Kyoto called Q-Games. They were in contact often and Yoshida eventually joined the company.
