- In the credits from Houkago in Beppin Jogakuin for the Super Famicom (otherwise developed by a Japanese company called Access), you will find two Chinese programmers: Chen Qiming and Hu Yumin. It looks like they were also programmers on World Beach Volley for the PC Engine (credited as "Yimin Hu" and "Aiming Chen"), which I've talked about before. Thanks to Ita for his (?) continued contributions to our Credits Dump.
- Speaking of World Beach Volley for the PC Engine, here's an old blog post (search for "031103," the date) written by someone who apparently worked at the now-defunct IGS (not to be confused with the Taiwanese game company), the game's publisher. The post is in Japanese, so I have to use an online translator. From what I can make out, the game was programmed in Shanghai around the time of the Tiananmen Square incident. This person resigned, I guess, perhaps out of protest.

Actually, Qiming Chen's name is spelled correctly in World Beach Volley-- look more carefully at the NicoVideo clip; that's not an "A".

@Codeman38 I guess you're right. Thank you.

He didn't resign for quite that reason; it was more to do with what one of the company officers said just after the incident. He referred to it as nothing to worry about as the Chinese are always fighting amongst themselves just like in Sangokushi. This wasn't the sole reason though, more a catalyst.
