Tsukushi Sasaki (better known as Tsukishi) is a Japanese composer, sound designer and sound programmer. She began her video game music career around 1989 when she started working at Mint. She worked with Mint's founder, Michiya Hirasawa, on several projects. She also worked with the late Akihiko Mori when he joined. Sasaki is the only surviving member of the group. Though she did not work on many well known soundtracks, she is perhaps best known for her work on Tecmo Secret of the Stars.

She was also known for doing parodies of songs from Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy in the game Zero Yon Champ.

Audio Development


Sasaki used a sound driver by Michiya Hirasawa. The music was entered in a custom MML. Unfortunately, none of the games she worked on made it outside of Japan.


For Tecmo Secret of the Stars, Sasaki used Tecmo's version of Nintendo's Kankichi-kun.

For the rest of her SNES games, she used a custom sound driver by Mint. The driver was possibly written by Sasaki and Hirasawa.
