About Ichigoichie

We are a game and media production house sewn from the fabric of creative expression. We have over twenty years of experience building music games and authoring software in Japan and Sweden. A deep love for sound, synthesis, and rhythm leads us to produce titles that bring a smile to your face and groove to your hips.

Ichigoichie itɕiɡo̞ itɕie̞ (stylized 151A) is a Japanese idiom that can be interpreted as “one chance in a lifetime”. Ichigoichie drives us to treat each encounter with respect and cherish the opportunity: every day another beat, another line of code, another laugh.

Our headquarters is in the center of picturesque Stockholm though we also spend a good part of time collaborating with our colleagues in Tokyo.

We’re currently building our second title, Backbeat, that blurs the lines between gaming, art, and performance. If you’re a driven professional and want to be a part of the dream check out our jobs page for current openings.



Manipulate four threads of time to guide your band through perilous puzzles. Perform jam band tricks to maximize your score. Customize your play with musical effect pedals and playing styles.
