Masahiro Sakurai, designer of the Kirby and the recent DS hit Meteos has launched his own game studio named Sora. In a recent Q&A with Edge Online, he talks about coming up with the design behind Meteos.
“[Meteos] was created by one designer, one graphic artist and one programmer, and took three days… When I designed Meteos, we didn’t know it would be released on the DS platform. That was decided after we saw the hardware at E3, in May 2004.”
Impressive stuff, and I’m anxious to find out if Sora will develop for the Revolution. How long did it take Aleksey Pazhitnov to design and develop Tetris?
