The showrunner and executive producer on the show will be Rafał Jaki who is credited with games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077, and The Witcher: Ronin. The series will feature an adapted screenplay by Yoshiki Usa who also worked on the GRIDMAN UNIVERSE series and Promare, and the score for the series will be composed by Akira Yamaoka who also created music for the Silent Hill series.
