About Me

Hiya, I’m Arimia / Aria. I’ve been an artist since 2010 and a game dev since 2014- I specialize in indie game marketing and making visual novels. Here you’ll find my thoughts on marketing visual novels, my occasional drawings, and some rambles. I’m a self-proclaimed shounen manga connoisseur (derogatory) and I have a soft spot in my heart for theme parks. My current fixation is finding old forgotten doujin fangames. I have a bachelors of science in computer science (surprise, no marketing degree).

I own Crystal Game Works, a visual novel studio. I also work at Studio ร‰lan, a yuri visual novel studio, doing marketing. This blog is mainly for talking about marketing and visual novel development. You can find my best articles listed here.

I’m not open for freelance marketing work, though I do occasionally do marketing consultation for commercial visual novel devs (please reach out to me on Discord). My Twitter is @ArimiaDev, my Tumblr is arimiadev and my Discord is arimia.

My mascots are Rimia and Mari.
