Susumu Takajima (高島 進 Takajima Susumu) is a Japanese-American game developer, tracker artist, actor, and manga artist. He is the creator and director of Drillimation.


Susumu Takajima was born on October 25, 1999 in Yokohama, Japan. He spent the first five years in Japan before moving to the United States at Drillimation's current headquarters.

Takajima loved video games, but hated playing with his older brother, Hiroki, who always beats him. At the age of nine, Takajima started programming and learning GML. His favorite game genres are platformers, scrolling shooters, fighting games, and even first-person shooters.

Takajima began the Drillimation series in his freshman year in high school, and even made Drillimations starring his friends. Takajima loved drawing anime-themed ideas. After the threat of a copyright infringement lawsuit from KingMTJ in May 2015, Takajima changed the sprite style.
