Courtesy of YouTube show OtakuVerseZero comes a unique interview with Hirotaka Machida, producer of the urinal game Toylets. Machida shows off the game, thankfully using simulated blue urine coming from a statue, and discusses the development of the unique “console”. Highlights include the discussion of the game’s “controller” and how the development team presented the game to the board of directors. Check out the full interview for proof that wackiness is not dead at SEGA.
PSO2 just keeps looking better! Check out this game play/developer diary with Dragon Sakai and that other woman…
The game play starts at around the 4:00 mark where they enter what looks like a giant cave level and fight a dragon multiple times.
Also worth noting is the use of telepipes and what looks like some kind of latency stress test at the end of the video; the very end gave me a chuckle.
Only a month or so ago after revealing that SEGA were planning a major expansion for their British based developer The Creative Assembly, the publisher today announced a new studio being set up in Solihull in the West Midlands of England and that they’re developing a new game for the Playstation Vita. If that location sounds familiar to some of you, it will be because this was were the ill-fated SEGA Racing Studio was once based. Indeed SEGA’s Gary Dunn, VP of product development for SEGA West confirmed that some members of the original team will be working in this new studio. He also went on to confirm that prior to this announcement, the group SEGA retain had been working under the banner of SEGA Technology Group. For a more indepth report, check after the break were VG247 had an indepth interview with Gary Dunn.
Fumito Ueda is one of my favorite people in the industry and runs one of the best teams at Sony, Team ICO. They are working on the upcoming (and excellent looking) title, The Last Guardian.
Fumito Ueda talked on twitter about how he has been a massive SEGA fan since they released the Mark III in Japan. I have actually heard about him being a big SEGA fan and actually being friends with Ryuta Ueda (who worked on Jet Set Radio, Panzer Dragoon series and Yakuza series). They even have the same last name… weird?
Something about Team ICO’s games always reminded me of Panzer Dragoon… I could never put my finger on it.
