Katamari Creator Has A New Company, Still Making Games

Keita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy who recently left Namco Bandai, has started a new company with his wife Asuka Sakai (who is a composer) called uvula.

Takahashi says the new company is for freelance work, and that while their "center of works" include music (as well as playground design), they'll also be working on games, perhaps suggesting the designer was more sick of Namco Bandai than he was of video games.

While uvula's site is a little bare at the moment, there are some neat older images the pair have uploaded, including photos of old artwork and the covers for Katamari Damacy games.
