thatgamecompany's new game will 'change the industry'

0

Says former studio member

Asher Vollmer blogged about how he had a hard time leaving thatgamecompany to make his own games. I imagine it couldn't have been easy to step away from such a great game making team, especially after the wild successes of their last title, Journey. Vollmer wants to strike out on his own and create his own games, though. As hard of a choice as that may have been, you've got to hand it to him for wanting to pick his own dreams. 

From what he says about thatgamecompany's next game, the decision to go must have been extra hard:

In addition to the emotional baggage, the New Game they’re making isn’t just something that you can casually abandon. Obviously I can’t divulge any details about it, but… It’s going to be huge. And I don’t mean it’s going to be a long sprawling game, I mean it’s going to be an IMPORTANT game. I genuinely believe it’s going to change the industry in a really positive way.

As great as this all sounds, don't get too excited yet. Vollmer says that this new game is inching along. 

"The Game is going to be incredible, but it is moving slowly. There are years remaining on the project and, quite frankly, those are years I don’t want to give up for a game that isn’t truly mine."
