Cocteau Twins album released in 1984. Featured their new member, Simon Raymonde. My personal favorite of the albums. One review infamously started, "Surely this band must be the voice of god." Has been repackaged twice, once with the Aikea-Guinea EP, another with the album, Victorialand.

There is no doubt that there were numerous cancelled titles as well. One high profile project they had was Magical Hearts: The GunBeat (aka Gunbeat.) It was a racing/shooting game being developed for Sega's Naomi arcade hardware. The project was officially cancelled 5/22/2000.

I had difficulty confirming the existence of some games, the Game Gear versions of Dynamite Headdy and Gunstar Heroes in particular. I'm not sure if these were developed by Treasure or re-coded by another company. I also believe that the Yuu Yuu Hakusho series for SNES was not developed by Treasure. If you believe that any of this information is inaccurate, please /msg me.
I've redone the formatting and decided to keep all the publishers hardlinked for readability. Feedback on this is appreciated.
