During Game Horizon today, Will Wright hinted that his next game in development will focus on the player’s own reality, reports Eurogamer.
During a Q&A session, Wright said his company Syntertainment is exploring “basing games in reality”, as “a way to capture a wider audience,” with the focus on creativity and community.
The firm is looking to see how it can “build a game around the player’s life – the places they know, the people they hang out with”. The games, he hopes will “intersect your reality, but give you a very different perspective on it.”
He said it’s about “understanding the player very deeply and having a game that envelops and involves particular people”.
