Who are ant, fang, and you? (Special thanks credits)

In the special thanks column in the credits ZUN thanks ant and fang. Is there any more information on these persons? Like how they helped out with Touhou?

beta testers I think
Regarding score threads: For the time being, I'm not going to be online much; I would suggest that you simply do as you normally do, because I will come back and I will want those threads when I do.

I'd say that it's odd that ZUN never credited the beer in the games, but it seems that Uwabami Breakers is a homage to that beverage in name of some developers.

I'm going to say fang and ant are the imaginary creatures ZUN sees while he is drunk and creating the games.

This thing about usernames can get confusing. Could it be that there's only one fang?

ant and fang are probably close friends of ZUN or something who helped out somehow.

ZUN's probably too shitfaced to know who the hell he's quoting.

ANd how the hell can there be a credits screen when one person makes the game?

People often author novels alone and still thank loads of people for their help. My guess is they're beta testers.

Now I get it! Since ZUN makes the games alone, ant fang and you must be ZUN's alternative personalities! So that's what excessive drinking does to you...

I could be completely wrong (probably am) but I thought either Ant or Fang did a little bit of the artwork (or at least some of the concept stuff) for the newer TH games.

That, and fang probably helps with music like we were guessing. Maybe not enough to be the author of a song, but at least saying "here is good [or not]".
Beta testing is even more probable.

I always thought they were beta testers.

I'm guessing beta testers for Ant and Fang and by "you" i think he refers to the player. I mean we take our time to play his games and everything.

Then again, Ant and Fang might be people who deliver pizza as Ghaleon suggests but i think its more plausible for them to either A: Be his parents (I have a theory about ZUN living in his parents basement). B: Be the ones who provides him with beer or C: The bodyguards that protects ZUN from the poor losers who gets violent. (I don't know if such exists but i guess its possible)

That was an awesome joke post that happened on Poosh a few months ago. Someone showed up as fang and posted a speech-thing ZUN wrote to the western fans that he translated. Of course it was faked, but it was faked well and was still pretty great.

Was that the one when this "fang" posted ZUN's message explaining his disappointment at the Western Fanbase?
