8-4 director steps down to link up with  Rez  creator, Tetsuya Mizuguchi

8-4 director steps down to link up with Rez creator, Tetsuya Mizuguchi

September 2, 2016 | By Chris Kerr




Mark MacDonald, executive director at Japanese localization outfit 8-4, has left the company after eight years to link up with Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi. 

Writing on Facebook, MacDonald revealed he actually stepped down from his full-time role around six months ago, but delayed his permanent exit to ensure certain projects, such as the publishing of Shovel Knight in Japan, came to fruition. 

Once they've been finalized, MacDonald will be moving on for good to head up production and business development at Mizuguchi's nascent indie studio, Enhance Games. 

"Miz is an old friend, and we'd been helping him behind the scenes with Rez Infinite since the beginning, so when he offered me the chance to head up production and business dev at Enhance a few months back, I jumped on it," said MacDonald. 

"I'll talk more about this elsewhere -- for now suffice to say the job requires a lot of new skills, and uses a lot more Japanese, but in most important ways it feels just like 8-4: a small, tight-knit group of friends who are willing to go the extra mile out of love for their games."
