Hideo Kojima has said he’d like to make a “revolutionary” horror game one day and already has ideas for what the project might look like.
The Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding creator previously worked on a horror game called Silent Hills, but it was cancelled by publisher Konami following the release of a playable teaser called P.T..
“P.T. was a mysterious game, created by a mysterious studio, with no previous announcement or information, so it used forbidden techniques to increase fear,” Kojima told BAFTA. “It was a one-off thing, so we cannot reuse that method again.
“P.T. ended as just an experiment, but I would like to make another horror game someday. Something that uses a revolutionary method to create terror, that doesn’t just make you pee your pants, but crap them. I already have ideas in mind.”
Kojima added: “I’m easily frightened myself, so I have confidence that I could create something more terrifying than perhaps others could.”
The designer previously suggested his next game could be a horror title.
Kojima will receive the BAFTA Fellowship at tonight’s BAFTA Games Awards for his contribution to the games industry.
