Rez Creator Interested in Returning to Game Development
Tetsuya Mizuguchi wants to start a new project either this year or the next.
In a new interview with EDGE (via Videogamer), Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi talked about returning to game development. Mizuguchi left Q Entertainment in 2013 and occupied himself with other interests. He’s currently contemplating a new project for either this year or the next.
“I’m helping with a few games, but these aren’t like my past works. These are not like my created games. I’m helping with some social games in Japan; I can’t say anything about it just yet. But I’m just helping. So I want to start a new project [of my own] maybe this year or next.
“I can’t share details yet. At BitSummit, I shared my thoughts on synaesthesia, and this is a big thing for me. I started that kind of concept in games with Rez and this is a long journey, across Rez and Lumines and Child of Eden, and maybe Space Channel 5 too. That part of my DNA will never die, so this is kind of a life’s work for me. So I’m thinking about what is next, and what’s the future experience.”
