Hideo Kojima Is Hoping to Create Games "That Change in Real-Time"

Hideo Kojima is now looking to develop games that can change interactions and outcomes in real-time.

Most known for his eccentric creative direction and vision, the Japanese video game developer revealed in a recent interview with lifestyle magazine An-An that he hopes to one day create games that can change in real-time according to external factors.

“What I want to do are games that change in real-time,” he said. “Even as we’ve finally got people of various ages and occupations from all around the world playing the same game, everyone, and I mean everyone, is playing the same. Instead of that, [I want to make] something that changes based on where a person lives or how they think.”

While a game like this could be incredibly complex to create, Kojima noted the example of a simpler approach that was heading in the right direction as early as 2003: Boktai: The Sun Is in Your Hand, a Game Boy Advance title that forced players to go outside in the real world when they hunt for vampires using a light sensor in the cartridge.

“Because the amount of sunlight is applied in-game to defeat the vampires, the game changes depending on where you played and what time you played,” Kojima explained. “A mechanic like that connects human-made systems and real life.”
