TH05 - Mystic Square's Extra Stage credits contain the text "ZUN (Junya Ota)". Is this his name?
ZUN at Taito
ZUN in the credits of Taito games:
Magic Pengal, EXIT: http://www.mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/developerId,123230/ Bujingai: http://www.answers.com/topic/bujingai-the-forsaken-city EXIT: http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/psp/data/929800.html
He may very well have been involved in other Taito games. If you own recent Taito games, please search for "Junya Ota" in the credits.
There is also a rumor that he is no longer employed at Taito.
Restrictions on derivative works
I just happened across what appears to be an English translation of the conditions ZUN places on Touhou-derivative works. Seems like that ought to be added to this wiki somewhere. Any thoughts on where to put it? -Winane 07:13, 25 February 2008 (PST)
I think "reclusive" is the wrong adjective to describe ZUN. He releases very little information on projects he is currently working on, but otherwise I've seen him at various doujin and beer related events, and he's a very frank and open person. He even has a USTREAM channel he streams around once a month, where he takes questions from fans. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nikenme-radio -Atlasia 11:31, May 2, 2012 (UTC)
