Quest Corp. (株式会社クエスト) was established in July 1988 to develop and publish consumer game titles. It was headed by Makoto Tokugawa (徳川誠) and based in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo. Merged with Bothtec in 1990, with Bothtec becoming Quest's PC games & software division; Bothtec was spun back off as a separate company in September 1997. Numerous employees left the company in the mid '90s, many for Square, and the company's games business was acquired outright by Square on June 19, 2002; Quest itself was subsequently closed down.

Following the Square acquisition, the team was mostly integrated into Square Development Division #4, headed by Yasumi Matsuno (松野泰己) who had previously directed both Ogre Battle and Tactics Ogre at Quest. Makoto Tokugawa would later head Nintendo second-party developer NDcube for a few years around 2008. [1]

Note: Various conversions of Magical Chase, Ogre Battle, and Tactics Ogre were released, but development was handled by other groups.
