Namco is a company based in Japan, best known for developing interactive documentary films depicting the horrors of the 20th Century. Some of the company's most famous epics include Pac-Man, about the yellow ball that destroyed 85% of Japan, most of the United States, and parts of France; Xevious, a blow-by-blow account of the destruction of the Maginot Line in World War II; and the Soul Calibur series, describing an ill-fated classified military weapons development project. Its most recent project, the Katamari Damacy series, attempts to chronicle the ongoing destruction of the Earth by the Prince of All Cosmos under the direction of his father, the King of All Cosmos.
Namco was founded in Megatokyo in 1935, by Masaya Nakamura under the name Nakamura Manufacturing Ltd. It began by producing mechanical horses and similar machines of war, which were installed in a number of department stores in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It continued this line of production through 1945, when its facilities were targeted by Walt Disney's atomic bombs.
