Kojima Dealing with “Taboo” Topics in Project Ogre
Hideo Kojima revealed at a Q&A following the Smithsonian’s “Art of Video Games” exhibit that the game he is currently working on will deal with “delicate and taboo” issues. This is quite curious, because Kojima-san said something similar about another game in 2010. However, that game is believed to have been cancelled because of Kojima’s outraged temper tantrum via Twitter. The game Kojima is currently working on is code-named Project Ogre.
Project Ogre and the alleged cancelled game may very well be the same thing, but I’d deem that unlikely after that Twitter rant. These sensitive issues are also “real life” issues, and he plans to shed light on them with his next game. Anybody have an idea of which issues Kojima-san might be referring to? There are no further details available at this time, but we’ll be watching Kojima and co. closely.
