Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the luminary behind Rez
and Every Extend Extra Extreme
, wants games to make you stoned.
Lock up your children, folks, because here's what he told SPOnG in a recent interview:
"There’s a big part to play for the multimedia aspect of gaming, and I feel that gameplay should be fed via graphical and aural technique – so players should relax, settle back in their chairs, have mushroom-gazed faces… (laughs)."
That's right. Games should be like the un-wholesome kind of mushroom that are eaten by certain debaucherous citizens.
He also had a few choice words about a possible further Every Extend Extra
sequel. Speaking about the challenges of making the last game, he said:
Tetsuya Mizuguchi: We were trying to find some more ideas to make the gameplay more unique too, but I guess that’s a challenge we will leave for an E5 perhaps…
SPOnG: What, like Every Extend Extra Extreme… Extraordinary?
Tetsuya Mizuguchi: (The translator, Kyoko, jokingly suggests ‘Every Extend Extra Extreme E’) Yes, maybe Every Extend Extra Extreme E! [laughs] We would have to think about that.
