Kenji Eno's last project to come via crowdfunding, posthumously

February 19, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




A year ago, talented and idiosyncratic game developer Kenji Eno died before he was able to realize what would become his final idea for a game.

That game is called Kakexun, and some of his collaborators and friends intend to make it with the help of crowdfunding.

In collaboration with Eno's former companies Fyto and Warp2, developer Kazutoshi Iida -- himself known for cult classics such as Doshin the Giant, Tail of the Sun, and Aquanaut's Holiday -- is set to launch a crowdfunding campaign to bring Eno's final game design, Kakexun, to fruition.

The campaign will launch on March 20; Iida and his collaborators will host a live broadcast on Japanese video service Nicovideo on February 20th from 7 to 9 pm JST to further detail their plans. More details are also available at their official site (Japanese only).

Eno was best known for the PlayStation-era game D, an interactive horror adventure which bore a sequel on the Sega Dreamcast. He also developed Enemy Zero on the Sega Saturn as well as, most recently, downloadable game You, Me, & the Cubes for the Wii. To learn more about Eno's contributions to games, you can read Gamasutra's and Game Developer magazine's remembrances of him.
