Imageepoch Inc. (イメージエポック, Imējiepokku) was a video game developer based out of Tokyo, Japan.

The company filed for bankruptcy in 2015, due to its declining sales and debt.[2]

History[edit]

The company was founded in June 2005 by Ryoei Mikage. Their first release was the tactical role-playing game on Nintendo DS, Luminous Arc.[3]

In April 2015, Gematsu reported that Idea Factory's Yoshiteru Sato shared that he was unable to reach Mikage privately and confirming that the Imageepoch CEO had gone missing.[4] In the same article, Ryoei Mikage's Twitter account was noted as being inactive publicly for months.[4] The following month, Imageepoch was confirmed to have gone bankrupt.[5]
