About the Developer
In 2002, Teratsuki Koichi gathered a group of like-minded individuals and the independent development team FLAT was born. FLAT didn’t limit themselves to specific genres, but created games of various genres, including quiz games and adventure games.

In 2005, the ‘Touhou Project’ phenomena (created by Team Shanghai Alice) kicked off in Japan’s doujin scene and the shooting game (STG) genre exploded in popularity. The FLAT members that enjoyed shooting games decided to try their hand at the genre and the result was the side-scrolling shooter PHANTASM. Having little experience in STGs at that time, they struggled, learning about the genre as they went. Eventually, FLAT shifted their focus to vertical scrolling STGs and created two new titles: eXceed – Gun Bullet Children and its sequel, eXceed 2nd – Vampire.

In 2007, the FLAT team created a shooting-focused brand called ‘Tennen-sozai’. Taking inspiration from famous STG developers such as CAVE, Treasure, IREM, Alpha Systems and many others, they created a new installment to the eXceed series: eXceed 3rd – Jade Penetrate. Featuring a rich cast of mysterious characters, this game flew in the face of the traditional hardcore shooting games. It proved very popular among gamers and became the flagship title of the brand. Since then, Tennen-sozai created a remake of eXceed2nd – Vampire, eXceed 2nd – Vampire REX, as well as a complete overhaul of eXceed3rd – Jade Penetrate, called eXceed 3rd – Jade Penetrate Black Package.
