Ico, Shadow of the Colossus director potentially teases his next project

Looks on brand

If you haven’t been keeping up with Fumito Ueda, he’s been a pretty busy man. Over the course of a decade and a half he directed Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian, a pedigree worth retiring over.

He’s still at it though, and after leaving Sony he’s back with his independent studio genDESIGN which is presumably crafting its first game. This teaser by way of the studio’s official website might be our first look at that project — an image that contains a girl on an altar (possibly a princess of some sort), and possibly a beast (or just a hairy giant man).

It’s not much to go by but it seems like Ueda hasn’t lost his touch, and is still content with getting weird with dreary backdrop to augment said weirdness. I wonder if it’ll be a little more confined this time now that they don’t have the backing of a major studio. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a five hour downloadable joint.

Happy New Year [GenDesign]
