Space invaders was created in 1978 by Toshiro Nishikado. He was a designer in the Taito Corporation. The video game was a massive success and it marked the beginning of the genre known as “shoot ‘em up”.

Toshiniro thought about including humans as enemies although he considered it was immoral to create a video game where you could shoot people. After reading a magazine about Star Wars, he decided to use aliens in his video game (the aliens were based on crabs and squids).
