Trivia Edit

  • It's believed that Hayashi was highly inspired by Toho Co,.'s movie Genmu Senki Leda: Fantastic Adventure of Yohko (1985) to make the Valis games because of Its strong aesthetical similitudes.
  • Albeit the Valis franchise having ended in 1993, Hiroki Hayashi had a website where he published his own artworks of many of the girls of Valis under the pseudonym PiXEL until the website's closing in 2003.
