Onions play game in studio often.
And strange illusion happen like this
To be or not to be, that is the question.
See you next friday..
This is Taniguchi-san who is very good man.
Left side of this picture, This is Taniguchi-san who is composer of Chulip, and some other lovedelic games.
I respect him very much.and I drink a cup of coffee with him sometime.
Once we start to talk,we never end.
We talk about not only music,but also movie and game, strange news ,storage people etc etc.
He is not only composer for my game. he is very good friend. He is one of person who can stand in front of my crazy story.
By the way, we went a little expensive cafe at ebisu recently. And while we were walking to cafe,we were talking about price of it.
“how much ?” I asked to him.
“Maybe it will expensive a little.” he answered.
I was wondering “where dose he take me to ? hotel restaurant? ”
In tokyo, people can go very very poor cafe or expensive cafe.
You can buy a cup of coffee,
it will be 100yen of Macdonald, or 360yen of Starbuck,or 1000yen incredibly expensive coffee at hotel restaurant.
“hum hum kimura-san” My tiny onion asked me “it is like a iPhone game price hum hum..”
And onion continued like this.
“Which cafe do you prefer to drink with Taniguchi-san ? 100yen coffee? or you buy iPhone game?”
I answered to tiny onion “I go to coffee of course.”
Having a coffee with friend is very happy more than anything.
It is priceless for me that I can talk about stupid things and discuss life with my friend.
Even though I love video-game, but I prefer talking with him more than purchase to app store.
This is true and honest.
And after having a coffee and chatting a lot with him.
I was whispering to my onion “Don’t think about video game price too much.”
I am writing text a lot recently. It is not only writing for Blog but also for the story.
Today,I write about ”the story”.
It is very important for me that I write the story by my own ideas in my life. I am writing something every day really like ill.
And what is “the story” for me?
Making story is that I create the new world that can have me. And I explain that these new world is very fragile bubble. And one of the bubbles may becomes a real universe. I am thinking like this.
I wrote three story today. One is for my very very tiny game. One is for job which I may earn some money. One is very strange story plot like CHULIP ,like moon which is for talking to my friend of far away land.
I wish that these bubbles become real small galaxy someday.
The word is very important element for the space which is final frontier in my heart. I can not explore without words.
You may often think video game don’t need the story.
And someone says “Chess dose not have story” “Puzzle game dose not have story”
but I don’t like making video game without story.
My body and soul says “Think Think Think,you can find out good solution between game and story”
Even though it may be very very fragile bubble.
“Hey! My tiny onion! Do you understand?”
(hi guys,I am still trying to write about my daily story in english:-)
Can I write the new story of …?
I say I am professional game designer,but I feel I suspect my self often.
I had a strong frustration recently.
Because I could not get new inspiration for adventure game.
I was thinking next piece ,something new ideas of like moon or like Chulip past few months.
But I was not able to get something new idea.
Starbucks coffee dose not help me at all.
I was thinking in starbucks of shinjuku3choume. and I was thinking in my house a lot.
It was so difficult for me.
My brain melt down quickly.And,I slept automatically like death.
And I did not notice my head became like volcanos.
My Head exploded suddenly!
After explosion of my head
I thought I need help of my friends for making my head quiet.
I e-mailed to fellows and We had a meeting.
It was very long time.
First of all we were discussing about something new concept.
We had a various theme .
But,one guy said to me “I want you to talk about what you like to do now.”
“now? in real life?”
And I was talking about my ambition on the road in real life. And I started to talk about trauma of the past unconsciously.
And I vomited all what I was feeling.
For example,I was talking about dissatisfaction of Chulip, dissatisfaction moon,my childhood strange story,the story of communication with animals ,trauma of sex, major incident of adult era, and the strange peoples I have met in my life.
And strangely enough, I got one inspiration from this discussing.
“I should start to write about it. Even though I do not know it can become videogame or not.”
And I can continue to think again.
