Compile Co., Ltd. 株式会社コンパイル was a Japanese video game development limited company founded by Masamitsu Niitani. Established on 7 April 1982, the company's original name was Programmers-3, Inc. Compile's catalog includes the shoot 'em ups Zanac and Aleste; the role-playing video game Madou Monogatari; and Madou Monogatari's puzzle video game spin-off, Puyo Puyo. After bankruptcy resulted in the company's dissolution in 2003, most of the company's remaining assets transferred to Aiky, a new company Niitani established in the previous year. Exclusive rights to the Puyo Puyo franchise transferred to Sonic Team, with whom Compile had collaborated to bring Puyo Puyo to the Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, PlayStation in the late 1990s. Compile completed their final game, Pochi to Nyaa, shortly before the company dissolved, and Aiky published it later that year. D4 Enterprise later acquired Aiky's intellectual property. For a few months before his retirement in December 2006, Niitani worked at Compile Heart, a video game development and publishing company.
