Team KAIZEN

Team KAIZEN was formed in the spring of 2006 by brothers Joshua and Trevor Hughes as a game studio, fully owned by their business, ADD-A-TUDEZ Entertainment Company. Since their forming, they have seen very early strides as the team sets out to develop Shattered Soul, a game that promises to mix intense battles with deep character and in-depth storytelling. Team KAIZEN has very high hopes of reinventing the game industry and bringing the art of video games to the next level.

Mission

Team KAIZEN’s mission is simple.

Team KAIZEN is dedicated to making games that combine the best of western and eastern game design to make games that are extremely exciting, addictive and inclusive. We will be leaders. Our games will help people appreciate the art style of video games even more and break cultural barriers and help to create unity amongst gamers of different cultures as our games take from each of their cultures to create unique fantasies. We will establish ourselves as a leader in the industry by making games that employ phenomenal gameplay and trend-challenging thinking in such a way that it will establish Team KAIZEN as a household name. We will also use our success to help and encourage other indie studios so they can use our experience to their benefit and make it in the industry.
