It appears Advance Communication had some connection with [[AIM]]. Earlier games had would-be AIM programmers on staff. Also, AIM president Hideaki Tsujikawa (辻川英章) was the Head of the Secretariat of the "21st Century Information Industry Network Cooperative" ([http://www.net21.jp/ which still exists]), of which Advance Communication was a member.
