Jenova Chen Interview: Journey, His Next Project,The Origin Of His Name, and Fortune Cookies

Trendy Gamers: When Jenova Chen, the creator of Cloud, Flow, Flower, and Journey, agreed to sit down with me and talk about his success with Journey, how thatgamecompany is doing now, and where they look to be going in the future, I was ecstatic. Jenova Chen, while only 30, is known quite well within the video game industry for his games pushing the envelope on what is considered art. In the following interview, Jenova discussed with me how the video game industry is similar to the food industry, his first encounter with a fortune cookie, and when we should be hearing about the next big title from thatgamecompany. This is definitely an interview you don’t want to miss. (flOw, Flower, Industry, Jenova Chen, Journey, PC, PS3, PSP, thatgamecompany)

Journey was such an amazing game. I look forward to hearing about their next project. The creativity that this studio has is incredible.

"JB: Would you ever consider bringing your games to handhelds like the Vita?

Jenova: In the past I used to think that was impossible you know, because a big screen experience is very different from a small screen experience. But with these handheld devices getting higher and higher resolution and faster and faster graphics…that is definitely worth looking into."

This part makes me think he doesnt understand the point of portable and mobile games

@Crap_Turtle.....If you don't mind me asking ....
What do you feel the point of handheld-portable gaming is?
Crap_Turtle  +   884d ago
to provide something different than the "big screen" experience.........

a portable should never be a port machine

the vita is proving that much early

@Crap_Turtle......Thanks for responding.
Since I've never really been into portables or handheld gaming, I was just looking for your personal take.

Thanks. :)

I really have been enjoying TGC projects, all three of them. And I wish them luck on their next project.
Judging by the interview their next game will probably be multiplat and I was hoping Sony would buy them right away.
