Creator: Shinji Mikami
The Man behind Resident Evil.

Shinji Mikami is one of the oldest and most well known video game producers, perhaps best known for the creation of Resident Evil. He also made God Hand, and helped create Clover Studios with the help of Hideki Kamiya (of Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Ōkami and Bayonetta fame) and Atsushi Inaba (Who helped out on a bunch of other works, and helped out with MadWorld), now known as Platinum Games. Originally a Capcom member (one of the oldest, actually), he then went to SEGA with the rest of his fellow Clover members at Platinum Games. He completed Vanquish and worked with Suda 51 and Akira Yamaoka on a comedy-horror game titled Shadows Of The Damned.

In 2010 he founded Tango Gameworks, a subsidiary of Zenimax Media (the same parent company as idSoftware and Bethesda) along with longtime Suda51 collaborator Masafumi Takada
