Sega Corporation (株式会社セガ Kabushiki gaisha Sega?), pronounced sæ'ɡə (US/Canada/UK) or si'ɡə (Australia/New Zealand) usually styled as SEGA, is a multinational video game software developer and an arcade software and hardware development company headquartered in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan, with various offices around the world. Sega previously developed and manufactured its own brand of home video game consoles from 1983 to 2001, but a restructure was announced on January 31, 2001 that ceased continued production of its existing home console, effectively exiting the company from the home console business. While arcade development would continue unchanged, the restructure shifted the focus of the company's home video game software development to consoles developed by various third-party manufacturers.

Sega's head offices, as well as the main office of its domestic division, Sega Corporation (Spartata), are located in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan. Sega's European division, Sega Europe Ltd., is headquartered in the Brentford area of London in the United Kingdom. Sega's North American division, Sega of America Inc., is headquartered in San Francisco; having moved there from Redwood City, California in 1999. Sega Australia is headquartered in Sydney, and Sega Publishing Korea is headquartered in Jongno, Seoul, Korea.

The House of the Dead (abbreviated as HOTD) is a video game franchise, produced by Sega.

As of 2005, there are four House of the Dead games originating in video arcade format available. Gameplay elements range from branching paths to unlockable bonuses, and a storyline revealed through numerous cut scenes and "chapters".

Several spin-offs to the mainstream storyline have also been produced, as well as two films. In addition, select enemy characters appearing in the first two games were adapted into fully-articulated action figures by Palisade Toys, which cancelled the second toy line before street release due to limited returns from the first series.

Selected biography

Naoto Ōshima (大島 直人 Ōshima Naoto?) is a Japanese national and former Sega employee who designed the characters of Sonic the Hedgehog and Doctor Eggman. However, Yuji Naka often gets the credit for his work on the Sonic series, because of his close association with the Sonic name. Ōshima gained renown at Sega's Sonic Team for creating characters and playing integral roles in the development of games like Phantasy Star, Sonic CD, NiGHTS Into Dreams, and Sonic Adventure.
