Long Time No Update

Jan. 8, 2018

Long time no update and I’m phasing out some old browser games. In specific, I removed the link to 2D Driving Simulator on Google Maps from the top page because I can’t maintain it anymore, but I’ll keep the page alive for some time. In 2017, I’ve joined a VR startup Hashilus as a CTO and been very busy for 2 years, but I will gradually restart my personal activity. Stay tuned!


Updated all Oculus Rift projects

Oct. 2, 2015

I’ve just rebuilt all my Oculus Rift projects to support Oculus Runtime 0.7. In addition, standard versions and Oculus Rift versions have been merged.

Into VR

Jun. 15, 2015

Long time no update again (sorry…)

Moved to Tokyo

Mar. 22, 2015

It’s been a long time since my last update.

I moved to Tokyo this month. Osaka was a good place and has good people, but I had to admit that Tokyo has far more opportunites (jobs, meetups, events etc.) on game development. I was always thinking of moving, and finally decided.

Launched a New Website

Jan. 10, 2014

We’ve rebranded our site to Frame Synthesis. The previous name was not suitable for our feelings and we’ve been seeking for a somewhat lightweight name. The new one came from “synthesize (video) frames”.
