Allumer Inc. (アルュメ株式会社) was established in February 1978 and was headed by Yoshiaki Tsuyuki (津行良明). Due to increased competition and a lack of successful titles, Allumer withdrew from game development and explored new businesses including the development of photo sticker image capture devices. [1] The company suspended business on October 5, 1999 [2], and filed for bankruptcy on February 10, 2015. [3]

Allumer's history is very much intertwined with another game company Seta. Early on, Seta was based in the Allumer Building. [4] Seta arcade games used Allumer chips. It's also debated whether some of the arcade games below, like Gladiator, were developed by Seta or Allumer.
