"I want to think about the future from the point of view of what the future human wants."
- Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of Rez
, on his new approach to games.
It hasn't even been two years since Tetsuya Mizuguchi left his studio, Q Entertainment, behind to take on a role as an academic, joining the staff of Tokyo's Keio University. Now, in a new interview with Edge magazine, he says
he's ready to ponder a return to games.
The creator of Rez
, Space Channel 5
and Child of Eden
is currently "helping with a few games," Edge reports, but plans to boot up his own project by forming a loose creative collective.
ďI will make a new kind of creative environment. Iím not that bothered about starting a new company. Instead, I'll connect with people and put together a group who are essential to the project, and then for the next project I'll start again. Everyone will be freelance. It will be similar to how you make a film or how you make music, with a group of independent people with specific knowhow working together.Ē
