Suda has 100 social game ideas, wants to make NMH “social game with the most blood”
We say “social gaming,” you say, “ewwww.” Normally, anyway. But what if we then say “Suda 51“? Oh goodness, you’re looking quite pale. You should probably sit dow– and your head just exploded. Now we get to say “ewwww.” But! Your head’s loss isn’t in vain, because we’re going to use it for a relatively serviceable segue. Because… because blood. Yeah.
“We’re aiming to make it the social game with the most blood,” Suda 51 said of his upcoming social entry in the No More Heroes franchise during a recent press conference.
In a space overrun by candy coated farms and cities presumably born of Bob the Builder’s blood, sweat, and tears, No More Heroes might seem a bit out-of-place. Suda, though, is well aware of that, and wants his social slashfest to stand out from the crowd. He hopes, then, that it’ll generate enough “power” and “impact” to make the jump over to our side of the pond.
That, however, is just the tip of a very large (and – knowing Suda – probably in some way phallic) iceberg. Next on the menu: 100 social games. Never at a lack for ambition, Suda hopes to see every last one of his ideas come to fruition one-at-a-time. But hey, the current crop of social games is sorely lacking in lightsabers and talking guns that appeal specifically to the part of our brain that’s still 12 (read: all of it), so we can’t complain too much.
