Infendo regular Josh D. points us to a Next Generation feature on Killer 7’s Suda 51 (Grasshopper Manufacture president Goichi Suda) entitled Suda 51 and the Punk Spirit.
Here’s my fundamental sticking point for the industry right now, summed up by Suda 51:
Suda 51 said that there are two types of directors: business-oriented and artist-types. The business-oriented directors “like to be lucrative” and create games at the request of a publisher, while artist-types create a game without thinking about the time frame or budget, he told an intent GDC audience.
I’m all for the latter, because it means more fun for me and a better dollar spent in the long run. And yes, I just said fun, again.
