Hideo Kojima has spoken very highly of Guerilla’s Decima Engine, the engine that they have used to create the upcoming game Death Stranding, comparing it to the space race.
In a series of tweets, Kojima compared the choice of the Decima Engine to the Space Race, saying:
The space development competition has been stagnated after the Cold War. Due to the steep rise in price of space development cost, the investment for the earth has been strengthened and they gave up on the space shuttle program. Meanwhile I who wants to proceed myself to the moon, met the guerrilla whose plan was to go to the mars. We decided to make the rocket by reforming their engine. And by doing so it enables us to go to the mars but even to the jupiter.
Some lofty words, but Hideo Kojima is known for delivering great games, and many people are excited to see what he does now that he is free from Konami.
