Braid Creator Now Working on 2D RPG?

Kotaku: "That's one nugget in a four-page interview Jonathan Blow gave to Gamasutra. But he's not sure if he'll end up finishing it:

"My newest game I started is looking very promising. I'm very excited to do it. But if the patterns of history continue, then I may not be working on it a month from now, so I don't want to start telling people about it," he said. While he said it's a 2D role-playing game, it sounds like his project schedule can get turned on its head at any time, and he'd ending building "a Pac-Man clone or something." Yes, but it would certainly be the most critically acclaimed Pac-Man clone or something, that's for sure.

The story is too old to be commented.

This actually shouldn't be put under the 360 tag anymore. The guy said he would never do a game for Live again because MS makes it hard for the developers to make money off of it. Basically said that MS takes a way bigger cut than PSN, Wii Ware, and obviously the PC can be free.

this is news to me that i find quite interesting. i knew microsoft was greedy but this greedy? microsoft forced criterion to charge for their new content, but criterion fought for us gamers so we culd get bikes and stuff for free. but now they lost the fight with microsoft and they charging for a simple car. f*ck you microsoft. F*ck you

Not that I doubt you but do you think you could post a link where he said something amongst them lines?

And some more info here


Hope that helps Mr. Cullen.

Edit: Make sure to read the comments. His is first. Like he said this article made him look really opposed to MS when he was merely miffed. Still though I agree with the guy below me. He seems to want to get his art out there and now he has the attention of Sony and Ninty... He wont need to stay exclusive next time.

This is the interview that has been a controversy with Johnathan Blow for a while but overall I feel he's torn on if he did the right thing or not... Either way game on.

I doubt he'd want to do another XBL only game since suggests he wants to get his games to as many people as possible. The guy has apparent conviction about spreading his contributions around.

Of course intention and circumstances may differ... *shrug*

Sad but true...

Here's hoping this new game is multy-plat.

Knowing this guy, we won't see his next game until 2012. Braid took freaking FOREVER to make.

Xbox360 is f**cking all JRPGs...

It's an insult to compare the whole of Japan to you.

You're a spiteful, jealous twit. That's where your hate for Microsoft comes from.
