You may have heard. There's an economic crisis going on. Many people are panicking about this, but Mistwalker's Hironobu Sakaguchi isn't. He's getting poetic.
Writing on his company's blog, the creator of the Final Fantasy series writes:
These days I feel the hard economic times are a kind act for the planet to restrain human activity. Economic activity is as important as blood flowing. However, the blood should be flowing smoothly, which I suppose means the quality of what flows in that stream must be as important.
There is a lot of business behind creating a game, yet I would like to keep 51% towards "creation" rather than "merchandise." I feel it shouldn't go over 75%, though. Setting sights on where the good blood flows.
Yeah man. Yeah.
