Hideo Kojima would like to make a ‘revolutionary’ horror game
“I already have ideas in mind,” says Metal Gear Solid creator
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.
A Konami representative recently shot down claims that Sony’s attempting to convince Kojima Productions to resurrect Silent Hills.
Kojima will receive the BAFTA Fellowship at tonight’s BAFTA Games Awards for his contribution to the games industry.
