Message from CEO

Before introducing myself and GREZZO, I would like to talk about our company name.

The word “GREZZO” was taken from the Italian phrase “DIAMANTE GREZZO” meaning “a diamond in the rough”.

Just as a jeweler would polish the rough diamond into a jewelry, we polish rough ideas to turn them into jewel-like contents.
It is from this notion that we chose “GREZZO” as our company name.

To achieve this, we have gathered staff with superior skills who share this goal.We value “Determination” to take one’s fulfillment in life and work, and to turn them into ideas.”Responsibility” to complete one’s tasks of polishing them into contents. And the ”Resolve” to accumulate this effort on daily basis with sincerity.

Through strong team work, we are able to grow together professionally, and enhance the working environment through furthering our aspirations. This leads our staff members to becomes the driving force of the company, pushing forward its strong growth. The synergy generated from the belief in such ideas is what makes the company shine like a jewel.

“GREZZO” could also mean “raw”, which conjures another positive image. It provides growth opportunities for the youthful minds to create a place of their own through their achievements. This becomes a place of appreciation and respect where it is good to be “inexperienced” and humble.
I have been creating games in the industry for 27 years now. During this time I have noticed many things, but one thing to note in particular is that people working together are more creative.

The games we make are not aimed solely for the personal satisfaction, but also to provide a place in which the mind and values of many can resonate together.
Here at GREZZO, we all want to grow through the use of modern digital contents from around the world, regardless of race, nationality, gender or age differences. It is our goal to create a space for the minds to have lots of fun while respecting one another.
