Chris Tang's involvement in the 1993 Sega Mega Drive game Gauntlet IV was one of the first times a passionate video game fan had direct influence on the production of a Japanese-developed title. While he had already developed a notable history in the game industry, Tang was still a relative outsider with little formal experience.
As with the later Rampart, Tang's involvement was specifically highlighted in the game's Japanese manuals as a novel and fascinating collaboration between an American gamer and a Japanese development team.
