“iihigate”─a combination of “iihi”, which a friend claimed as the onomatopoeia for sniggering, and the “gate” of “Raquel Applegate”, a Wild ARMs character I greatly enjoyed.

iihigate is a platform for my writing and productions, the latter of which consist mostly of Visual Novels.  A Visual Novel is a written story complemented by music and pictures to provide a more interactive story. Often, these stories involve choice options and allow the reader to explore the various possibilities in a story.

Most of my works focus on “kinetic stories”, which are stories that run from start to finish without offering a single choice option. These works are produced in conjunction with various artists and sometimes composers. I claim only responsibility for the writing.
