Hack the next experience

What We Do

CharacterBank is a XR software startup founded in 2019.

Based in Kyoto, Japan, we use cutting-edge technology to plan and develop VR games, with a focus on original titles.

We distribute games for Meta Quest and Steam. RUINSMAGUS was featured at the Meta Gaming Showcase and was ranked number one in sales in the VR category on Steam.

We hope to continue to be a Kyoto-based company that makes the most interesting VR games from Japan.


VR is still in its infancy.

Devices are still heavy and may are expensive. Many of the contents that can be experienced may be lower than those of existing game consoles.

However, it is precisely because of the current state of VR that we are taking on the challenge to create great experiences.

We are challenging ourselves to create a good experience because of the current state of VR. “If I’m going to put on something this heavy, I need to be able to go to a different world! These thoughts are the driving force behind our work.

In the future, not only VR but also AR and MR devices will become as popular as smartphones. We will continue to grow so that we can create the best content at that time.


The members of the company come from a variety of backgrounds, including people from the game industry, advertising, and entertainment industries.

Based in Kyoto, the holy land of games, they continue to enjoy everything, keep thinking about what is interesting, and continue to create what they think is the best.

Our office moved to a new location in August 2022, and we now have a beautiful office just a 5-minute walk from Gojo Station.
There is a bar counter on the 4th floor, and communication among members is active on weekends.

Some employees have side jobs, and we fully support their personal growth as well as the company’s. We also offer an entertainment subsidy, which is a benefit package.

In addition, we have an entertainment subsidy, a benefit program where the company subsidizes entertainment that can be experienced outside of the home!
