I need my game to be extra like a Quentin Tarantino film – so there could also be some humor in it. Something that’s solely intimidating or solely bloody and brutal would not go well with my style – I desire a human contact, some silliness and a few seriousness, that is what I’m within the temper for in the mean time.

I’m not the kind who can hold one thing like that again for a very long time. So you in all probability will not have to attend an excessive amount of longer…. Or somewhat: I believe I’ll go public with it a lot ahead of different builders would!

And I informed the present proprietor, “Guys, I don’t want to be the CEO of Sega here.” I’m a gamer and a game maker, I need to push my profession in that course as effectively. Eventually, I got here to the purpose that I noticed higher prospects for that if I began my very own firm and simply did not stick with Sega. And on the identical time, Sega can now develop somebody right into a future CEO. So I believe the pursuits of either side, Sega’s and mine, are finest served. At the identical time, this results in a continued very pleasant relationship with Sega, even after I stop there.
