Is Mindjack the future of games? Apparently so, according to producer Yoshinori Yamagishi, talking exclusively to Play.
“Games have evolved along two paths,” Yamagishi explains. “One is the combination of story and playing, leading to the conventional campaign game. The other path is the fun of co-operating and competing against people, which has grown by setting up network environments and has led to current multiplayer games.
“The concept of clearing away the wall between single and multiplayer is a new experiment and idea for a shooter. As you guessed, this system allows the player to enjoy replaying Mindjack forever and we think that there may be many more games like this in future.”
