Quotes

"No tools for polygons existed and I had to create the game system from scratch."

"I always tried to consider myself as a player who knew nothing about [the game]. I would ask myself what I would love to experience, and then as a creator what would surprise the player."

"The real media is the player's memory and imagination."
