I love it. But they really need to hire a better translator for his English Twitter. Even Google translate does a better job translating his JP Tweets

Props to GG for creating a fantastic engine and to KP for creating another wild wacky unique experience.

Edit: Had no idea Kojima gave a Skype Presentation to Mads about the game BEFORE he asked him to join the project.

Also got to love how Kojima gives thanks and appreciation to countless devs who offered their game engines to him when he announced Death Stranding.

So from concept to almost Gold status in 3.5 years? Hmmm

My guess is that the advanced engine was ready in the lighting, animation, A.I., textures, larger open worlds, etc. All his team had to do was create the characters, build the story out and pick the actors.

It's simplifying it but he didn't have to build the engine which might have made things a lot easier. Fox was a multi platform engine and MG4 had to squeeze itself on the cell processor.

He could have maybe used Unreal Engine 4. It's way better than 3. But having Decima targeting PS4 and pushing it beyond Unreal, I would have accepted it too.

Guess we'll find out when he drops the game on us.

It goes to show some naysayers that Kojima was not procrastinating while at Konami...

True. Some think he was lazy and bleeding money. When each game he made for Konami was a hit and made all the money back while representing the company honorably.

The fact that someone at Konami stripped all his credits on his games means that someone there didn't like his seniority status in the company and tried to belittle him as some regular employee and not a gifted game developer.
