Rez and Lumines creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi took a step back in 2012 to relax, and fully left Q Entertainment last year. He has been working on social games in Japan since then, but it sounds like he's gearing up to create something of his own again.

Mizuguchi told Edge that he's preparing his own creation now.

"I’m helping with some social games in Japan; I can’t say anything about it just yet. But I’m just helping," Mizuguchi told Edge. "So I want to start a new project [of my own] maybe this year or next year."

He says that this new project will not be created in a traditional studio. Instead, he'll connect with others on a freelance basis, similar to how you'd make a film or music. Mizuguchi is also not opposed to mobile games and free-to-play models. 

While he didn't have much to reveal on this new project, maybe his reference to his BitSummit talk on synaesthesia was a bit of a hint.

"I started that kind of concept in games with Rez, and this is a long journey, across Rez and Lumines and Child Of Eden, and maybe Space Channel 5 too. That part of my DNA will never die, so this is kind of a life’s work for me. So I’m thinking about what is next, and what’s the future experience."
