Gust Co., Ltd. (株式会社ガスト), also known as Gust Nagano Development Group, is a Japanese video game developer and division of Koei Tecmo, known for the Atelier series of role-playing games.


Gust was founded in 1993 in Nagano, Japan, beginning by creating doujinshi games for personal computers such as the NEC PC-9801. In 1994 the company became an official Sony PlayStation developer[1], and later in 1997 released Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg, the first game in the long-running Atelier series.

On December 7, 2011 Japanese publisher Koei Tecmo acquired the company from its previous owner Keiken Holdings for 2.2 billion yen as a wholly owned subsidiary.[2] It was announced on July 28, 2014 that Gust will be absorbed by its parent company Koei Tecmo on October 1, 2014, and will continue to develop existing game series and new intellectual properties as Gust Nagano Development Group.[3]
