Hideo Kojima, the renowned game designer responsible for the saga Metal Gear and Death Stranding

The plans are to create a “playground”, which improves and is different from how the game was released. Kojima compared the idea with his “walking simulator” of 2019, in which the inspiration was humanity’s existence through connection indirect. “Roads and convenience stores exist because someone made them,” says the developer as a way of explaining how we live in society and sometimes we don’t realize it.

    Other quote was from his Game Boy Advance (GBA) game Boktai: The Sun Is in Your Hand. The adventure game stars the vampire hunter Django and uses the handheld’s sunlight sensor to battle the nocturnal creatures.

    “I want to create a game that changes in real time. Although there are people of different ages and professions playing the same game, they do. they’re playing the same way. Instead, I want the game to change based on where that person lives and that person’s unique perspective… Defeating vampires using sunlight would change based on where and when you played. This kind of feature connects man-made systems to real life.”

    Even without anything concrete, Kojima’s inspirations are the ways in which the gaming community lives. Professional athletes, streamers, photographers who take screen shots at a professional level and many other players in this virtual ecosystem use games beyond their initial proposals.

    Much than he says are some systems we’ve already encountered in games like GTA Online, Fortnite, Pok√©mon GO and other titles as a service that use in-game community systems. Even quoting Death Stranding, playing online allows you to access bridges, items and other perks created by other players on the same server. In other words, Kojima’s ideas practically already exist and he already uses many of her elements.
