Established on December 2, 1981, Tokyo-based System Sacom Industry Corp. (システムサコム工業株式会社) makes and sells computer peripheral and factory automation-related devices. [1] The company withdrew from the game industry in 1998. [2]

Sacom was responsible for the "Novel Ware" series of adventure games that were highly influential in the genre of visual novels. The company was a member of DOG (Disk Original Group), a coalition of companies led by Square that produced games for the Famicom Disk System [3], and a similar group called Super Software Team, made up of several computer game makers. [4] It was also involved with Scap Trust, a joint venture with seven other software companies. [5]

Sacom Multimedia Studio in Yokohama provided motion capture, recording, and movie conversion/digitizing services. [6]

Sacom's business software division broke away and became System Sacom Business (later SSB) in 1990. In 1998, Masaharu Inoue started what is now Ivy-Arts (originally Media Jungle, then Jungle [7]).
