Masae Yonaga was a Japanese programmer who worked for Pax Softonica. She attended the Kunitachi College of Music and only composed the music to one game. She also helped program Hokkaidou Rensa Satsujin, but she didn't do any sound-related work on that title.
Masae got interested in video games when she saw a commercial for Super Mario Bros. (NES), and then she wanted to know how games worked. She started working at a company and then learned how to program on the MSX computer in Z80. She then moved to Pax Softonica with a friend so she could work on Nintendo games. Unfortunately, by the time she was studying Famicom Disk System programming, it was too late as the Super Nintendo was already released.
Masae composed her only game, Super Dyna'mix Badminton in which she was required to program her own sound driver and wrote the music in 6502 assembly machine code. Though she is credited in Hokkaidou Rensa Satsujin: Okhotsk ni Kiyu for assist programming, she didn't have anything to do with the audio.
