Suda 51 Speaking at GDC
More GDC ’07 news rolling in. Suda 51 from Grasshopper manufacture is to speak at the upcoming Game Developers Conference. He is going to talk about taking risks in making games and will touch on both Killer 7 and the upcoming No More Heroes game for Wii. Here’s a quote from him:
“Game creators should be faithful to their vision and instincts, if original games are what interest them. The players in turn will respond favorably to this originality, as there’s an innate desire to experience something new. There is severe stagnation in terms of game design these days however, as creators are afraid of taking risks. This talk will discuss our production style at Grasshopper, which is rooted in appreciation of our native Japanese culture and aesthetic. This is how I worked as director, game designer, and scenario writer for Killer7 and the upcoming title, No More Heroes.”
IGN has the full story. I’m pretty excited about the possibilities in No More Heroes. Maybe we’ll get some more info at GDC about the game.
