The game company responsible for the Lunar Game Series, Popful Mail, and more recently Silhouette Mirage. This company has made its fortunes translating beautiful, anime-style games.

When American translate and repackage a Japanese video game in English, they can make the game anywhere from as good as the original to hideous and confusing. Even the best publishers usually end up making the translated game a little bit worse than the original, but Working Designs is the one company that usually makes the translated version better than the original! In fact, they do so much to improve the US versions of the Lunar games better than the unremarkable Japanese versions that Japanese gamers import the US version back into Japan! WD has also earned a cult following in USA, and their fans buy their games more for their localization quality than for the original content.
