Gust Co. Ltd. (株式会社ガスト Kabushiki-gaisha Gasuto) is a Japanese developer and publisher of video games, known for their Atelier and EXA_PICO series. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Koei Tecmo.

Gust Co. Ltd. was founded in 1993 in Nagano, Japan, as the first game software house in Nagano Prefecture. The company began by creating dôjinshi games for personal computers. Its first project was Story of King Ares (アレス王の物語) for the NEC personal computer. In 1994 the company became an official developer for the Sony PlayStation video game console, and its first PlayStation product was the simulation game Falkata (ファルカタ). In 1997, Gust released Atelier Marie, the first game in the long-running, popular, and iconic Atelier series. Since then the company has released several successful games for various home and portable video game systems.


On December 7, 2011, the financial news source Nikkei reported that Koei Tecmo had bought all shares of the company from the stakeholders for 2.2 billion yen with the intention to make social games of Gust's Atelier console role-playing game franchise. The company has since been fully merged into its new parent, and now exists only as a brand and internal team at Koei-Tecmo.
