ComuNet, Inc. last edited by Bowl-of-Lentils on 02/16/20 12:03PM View full history


ComuNet, Inc. was a California based publisher established in October 2000 by Kazuhiko Sugiyama. The publisher advertised itself as a seller of interactive DVD games but only remained in business for a few years before the company was suspended by the California Franchise Tax Board sometime in 2003.

ComuNet's website lists four titles in their catalog. All of the games were interactive DVD versions of Japanese visual novels, most of which were developed by Nitroplus. These include:

  1. Phantom of Inferno
  2. Vjedogonia
  3. No Reality
  4. Hello World

Phantom of Inferno, the only known title out of the four to make it to market, was released by ComuNet sometime around 2001 and was branded under a label called "Anime Play DVD" [5]. Hirameki International Group would later re-release Phantom of Inferno on September 10, 2002 and would also adopt a similar "AnimePlay" brand name for their interactive DVD and PC titles.
