I see that album was cataloged everywhere as an arrange for the game "Koutetsu Ryouiki: Steeldom".

The matter is the official romazination of the Technosoft game is "Kotetsu Reiki: Steeldom".

I don't know if we should fix the game relation or not..

The kanji part of the title is 鋼鉄霊域, which is readable both ways, but a literal dictionary reading would be "koutetsu reiiki" as you say and means something like "steel sanctuary." I'm not sure where you found the official romanization from Technosoft, since there doesn't appear to be a reading on the game case or any of the album scans, but that just makes me think that the straightforward reading is the correct one.

I actually see the game title stylized as "鋼鉄霊域(スティールダム)" (you can see this on this scan, left side, halfway down), so I think Technosoft is going with "Steeldom" as an English translation/reading of the Japanese name.

Is "Tukumo" in the composers field deliberate?

Yup, it's on this scan. It's pretty consistently spelled "Tukumo" on the Factory Noise & AG releases when it's spelled out.

OK! I was just wondering because the Notes section has "Tsukumo".
