Takahiro Ogata is a Japanese composer and sound designer who worked for Jaleco, Atlus, and Gaia. After Gaia, he stepped back from composing and became a developer account manager for Microsoft. Recently, Ogata has started creating new music under the name "OGT".

Music Development

Game Boy

Takahiro said the following about Avenging Spirit, his first game:

PC9801 + Nintendo official Game Boy emulator tool kit & ICE ( In Circuit Emulator ) and Jaleco original sound driver + MML (Music Macro Language)

The sound driver was written by an unknown programmer, though the first version was written by main Jaleco composer Tsukasa Tawada.

For Soldam, Ogata was provided the original arcade version's MML data, making for an easier conversion to Game Boy.
