So you enjoyed The World Ends With You? Too bad. You won't be seeing anything remotely like it from Square-Enix anytime soon, according to company president Yoichi Wada, who recently issued an ultimatum to his staff: if any games are made that don't fit into the mainstream's circle of interest, job cuts will follow. So long, unique concepts that break the mold!
My number one hobby seems to be headed for a downward spiral.
With start up Devs not being able to break into the industry because of cost and established ones taking low risk ventures, a stagnant market looks to be the future.
It is definitely not good when creativity is held back to fit a mainstream mold.
I'm really missing the days when gaming was not so mainstream.
Dark days ahead. :sad:
