lol wearing a gasmask

lol is the creator of .flow. His birthday is on July 30. He lives in Tokyo, or used to live there in 2012.1 He got married on February 5, 2019.2

His nickname is always written in lower-case letters. It is read as "ロル" (roru) in Japanese. He describes it as an abbreviation that means laughing aloud and is used in foreign countries, and it is a name he quite likes. "lol" is not an emoticon.3


  • Orange seems to be his favourite color.
  • There is a similarity between orange machines in .flow and early works of the artist asgr. The first version of .flow was released later than some of asgr's art, so it appears that lol drew inspiration from asgr.4
