Goichi Suda is Indie”ish”!?
Nishioka talked with Suda on stage and asked him, “Why do I feel like you are a indie person even though you make games in a big studio?”
Suda said the reason might be because he used to work at a company that doesn’t exist anymore called Human Entertainment.
After talking about Human Corp. for a while, Nishioka talked about Suda’s sense of Indie. He said that there was a time of trouble after Suda released The Silver Case, and that was when Nishioka felt the sense of indie from Suda. Suda said that he spend some time thing about how to go on as a independent team. The answer to that was the release of “Killer7”, and Nishioka says that was when Suda’s style was certain.
