yonjuni games is a one man company with the goal to publish self-designed games. Actually it’s only a part of my all-in-one hobby company Yonjuni Musik & Data. As you might guess from the name I am also a DJ and sell computers. The latter is where it all started: me, my brother and a friend built and sold PC’s to home users in the mid 90’s. We were soon overrun by internet companies and when my brother and his friend left the company I kept the name. Nowadays the computer building and DJ businesses are more or less shut down.
Yonjuni is Japanese and means 42, you see the Japanese signs in my logo. My brother and his friend were big fans of Douglas Adams’ “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” so 42 is the answer to life, universe and everything. Why we chose Japanese I don’t know, maybe because Japanese signs look good. I have kept the name because I am conservative and don’t want to change a name I’ve used for almost 20 years. In addition to game design I also design and make wooden accessories to games, which you can see pictures of here.
