It's Kitadashi!

My name is Joey Jerome "Kitadashi" Smith. I love art, games, anime, manga and music. Most of the time you'll find me on Tumblr or Steam.

I'm the owner of tsoto media and I create websites, try to develop games, also translated games in the past, sell anime, manga and videogames in my online shop and do some other fun things.

The avatar I mostly use is my own character loosely based on myself, drawn by kocrow, mamehoshi and several other artists, Pikachu by Lyle, Halloween Pokémon by Pechika or Various Pikachu by Omelette Rice. The Wallpaper or Header Images I use is Night Sky Full of Stars by Tokumu, Magic School by Tami, Peaceful Days by Kyomu or It's my place,It's my time by Funeumi.

Please note: I can't draw at all, most of the time I only do the code stuff. I'm always looking for artists, to do some stuff together, especially to develop a game!

Stuff I made

Websites - It uses a community and content management system developed over the timespan of several years. It features an ajax chat, forums, a shop, databases about anime, manga & games and more, all made by myself. We sell anime, manga, games and merchandise there, so be sure to check it out if you live in europe.

Websites (Abandoned) - A german fan site about Hamtaro I started what feels like centuries ago. I still love Hamtaro and never wanted to abandon the site, but I'm currently busy with lots of other things. It was by the way on page 1 on german google when you searched for "Hamtaro". - It was a video ad marketing platform I made in 2011. Advertisers were able to upload their video ads and set lots of targeting options like country and interests. Members could watch the ads and collect points they could exchange for rewards like game cards or gift cards. It failed mainly because of the distrust of many members, avoiding the platform because they thought we would sell their adresses. We acutally never did, but anyway - the website did feature things like video upload, converting them to flv files and playing them back with a special flash video player I developed.


Element Stories - It's a Browsergame I want to develop but its development is currently paused due to missing background and character artists. You can create a character choosing gender, hair, eyes, face and body color and start questing right away, equip your character, buy and sell stuff to NPCs and so on. It is fully customizable via the Administration I made for it.

Pesce in Oceano - A flash game I made while learning ActionScript 2. It's actually not fun at all and has the worst retro graphics ever, but I somehow wanted to finally publish a game made with flash. Since then I actually started developing lots of games in flash like advetures, shoot 'em ups, tower defense and stuff, but never nearly finished them because I was demotivated without having any graphics to work with. Ugh...

Games (Translations)

Alice mare - German Translation - I liked the fairytale style of the game from the beginning and the story is very sad, yet beautiful. Thanks to Miwasiba for letting me translate this game.

Ib - German Translation - I'm a big fan of this game, so it was a real enjoyment to translate it into german. It included lots of images and a video I had to translate. Special thanks go to vgperson and of course kouri for allowing me to translate his game.

Majo no Ie: The Witch's House - German Translation - After translating Ib I wanted to translate another game I liked and has not been translated yet. I translated the whole thing in about one day. Even though the game gets a bit cruel now and then its plot is really astonishing. Thanks to Fummy who let me translate his game.

The Witch's House MV - German Translation - Remake of The Witch's House. Fummy reached out to me if I'd be interested in translating it, so there goes.

I'm on...
