Suda51: “The idea comes out when I take a dump”

Tuesday, 23rd March 2010 10:35 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Come on, now. Seriously?

Grasshopper mastermind Suda51 has said in a Rising Star video interview that he sometimes gets inspiration in the moments he passes stools. Hot news, we know, but whatever.

“I have ideas when I go to the bathroom,” he said. “I’m thinking, [and] the idea comes out when I take a dump.”

The No More Heroes lead added that his “brain” sometimes “sees something” and thinks “we can use this”.

“Other times an idea pops into my head, and other times I remember an old idea and combine it with a new idea,” he said.

Watch the full thing below. No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise releases for 360 and PS3 on April 15 in Japan. Thanks, GoNintendo.

    Sometimes, the news writes itself.

    Quite often I solve tricky programming problems while taking a shower. I have no idea why this works, but it does. Do not underestimate the power of the bathroom!

    Probably explains why the main character of No More Heroes spends so much time on the bog. Personally I find a good brisk walk often churns up a good idea to solve a programming issue.

    Good acoustics in the shower/bathroom, and you generally have a good 10-20m of free time, quiet and uninterrupted. Good place to do some thinking.
