Gai Brain Co., Ltd. (有限会社ガイブレイン), often written as Gaibrain, was a Japanese video game developer.


As Japanese video game developer Santos approached the end of the 1980s, the company found itself in dire financial straits, and its main publisher Sega decided to purchase much of the company in December 1991. Instead of fully acquiring Santos itself, Sega instead acquired the majority of the developer's staff and unfinished games, and used the resources to establish a separate company, Megasoft. Later that month, Santos filed for bankruptcy.

Company head Takeshi Tozu and much of the staff who did not transition to Megasoft soon founded a second company in 1992 by the same name, Santos. That same year, another group of former staff led by Tomohiro Ishigai would venture out and establish a second company by the name of Gai Brain.
