Mistwalker boss and Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi isn’t worried at all about the world’s current economic woes. He says so on his blog.

Instead he feels that it is a good opportunity for us to take stock and “restrain human activity”, which in his mind equates to being more creative instead of being financially-driven.

These days I feel the hard economic times are a kind act for the planet to restrain human activity. Economic activity is as important as blood flowing. However, the blood should be flowing smoothly, which I suppose means the quality of what flows in that stream must be as important.

There is a lot of business behind creating a game, yet I would like to keep 51% towards “creation” rather than “merchandise.” I feel it shouldn’t go over 75%, though. Setting sights on where the good blood flows.
