Sad news for fans of games like Rez, Lumines and Space Channel: Q Entertainment's Tetsuya Mizuguchi (pictured) has stepped away from active game development.
Lumines was one of the best games on the original PlayStation Portable. It was sort of a rave version of Tetris, which was a very good thing. The successor to the PSP is now upon us, and so is a new Lumines, subtitled Electronic Symphony.
Monster Hunter is now synonymous with the PSP. Back in late 2004 and early 2005, that wasn't the case. Monster Hunter was a PS2 game, and Sony was still convinced that the PSP was its new Walkman.
4am is the latest title on Q-Games' PixelJunk brand. Details about the game are scant, even though there is a debut trailer. It promises that players can "freely shape the sound to perfection" and then broadcast that sound to the world.
Q Entertainment makes very pretty games like Lumines and Child of Eden. Games that are nothing at all like Monster Hunter. At the very least, he does walk the walk.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the developer behind Space Channel 5, Lumines, and Rez—and its upcoming spiritual sequel Child of Eden—joined the long list of smart, creative types who can boast of having their own TED talk. What does Mizuguchi think is an "idea worth spreading"?
Making video games that support them, however, is totally awesome. In 2002, game designer Testuya Mizuguchi made a "trance vibrator" for his synethesia shooter Rez. The trance vibrator even came in a washable "protective glove".
Dated for June, Child of Eden is the upcoming rhythm action game from Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the game designer responsible for the classic shooter Rez.
Developer Q? Entertainment's Child of Eden finds players in a happier place than the game it was inspired by, the trippy 2001 musical shooter Rez.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi wants to share your "happy feelings" with the world—or at least with the people who play Child of Eden, developer Q? Entertainment's spiritual sequel to the classic synaesthetic shooter Rez.
The more we see of Tetsuya Mizuguchi's new game, the more the similarities to his previous masterpiece Rez become apparent, but that's OK. Rez with better graphics and lots of rhythmic arm waving will be lots of people's cups of tea.
First made public in early 2008, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and No More Heroes designer Goichi Suda have teamed up with EA on a new game. According to Japanese game mag Famitsu, that game has a title.
There has been confusion about how multi-platform motion title Child of Eden is going to be released. The game's developer has cleared up that confusion.
Worried about Kinect lag? Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the game designer behind Rez and Lumines, is here to quell your fears.
Fans of the video game Rez from Tetsuya Mizuguchi—people of discriminating taste—should be ecstatic to learn that a sequel, in spiritual form, is coming. Child of Eden is what Rez would be if controlled by the human body.
