About Black Tower

Established in 2012 in Tokyo as a game development studio that is less “suit and tie” and more indie “punk rock” band. We work with various publishing and development partners throughout the world.


President and Creative Director Richie Casper hails from Atlanta, Georgia. Although he has lived in Japan for over 20 years, he has somehow retained his Southern accent and mixes and matches English and standard Tokyo Japanese with a little bit of western Japanese dialect that comes out on occasion.


Chief Technical Officer Kohei Kamata hails from the moutaintops of Yamagata Prefecture. A high-tech ninja with a wealth of original game engine creation and game development experience on consoles, he has been making games from all the way back to the first PlayStation and up to the current consoles, specializing in Unreal Engine 4 development.


In addition to Richie and Kohei, Black Tower is made up of several other highly experienced rockstars, who specialize in blowing peoples’ minds with their pure awesomeness.
