Project Ensō is tofurocks' publishing branch, both for titles developed in-house and by the studios we work with. We are primarily focused on bringing free narrative-driven games to mobile, as we believe mobile players deserve an ad-free experience unhindered by "gem/energy" systems that require them to stay online, even for games that do not have multiplayer functionality, or hidden IAP to unlock more content.Our mission:
Creators First - Prioritize the needs of our partners
Support Our Peers - Everyone wins when the overall quality of visual novels improve
Bring Queer Games To More Players - Our stories deserve to be told
