Suda51: If you play Let it Die 'you will understand I am still crazy'


Gameplay footage & a Holmes interview with Suda51

Our special little guy Jonathan Holmes caught up with the good-shoes-wearer himself, Suda51, at PAX last week in Boston for a hands-on with Grasshopper's upcoming Let it Die and a chat with the man himself. Holmes doesn't seem to have captured Suda's good shoes, which I am sure he was wearing despite my not being in attendance, as he is always wearing cool shoes when ever I see him.

He did however get a good, extended look at a game with a skateboarding Grim Reaper in the logo (and also a shrugging Grim Reaper who notes, "Surprise! You are dead!" when you are, surprise, dead). It's definitely wacky, and Holmes opens up asking Suda about the idea that he's becomes a more serious, less wacky guy. This is a concern I've raised myself after Killer is Dead, which I generally liked a lot, but felt was very safe and conventional in some ways (relative to Suda's ouevre, at least, rather than the whole industry).

Suda responded with shock and a simple answer: "If you play [Let it Die] you will understand I am still crazy."
