Hideo Kojima has said he ‘would start from zero’ regarding Death Stranding 2, while speaking to Vulture. Hideo shared an in-depth conversation with Vulture concerning the first Death Stranding. He discussed the creative process behind it, in which he explored his own personal experiences.
Kojima discussed the experiences with his father, when at the age of two, he was pushed out of a boat into an ocean, inspiring aspects of the game such as sea monsters to an ocean of tar.
Kojima said, “It was so frightening. I still go into the ocean, and I dive from time to time, but I get really frightened about these big waves and big ocean animals.”
The creative brain behind the Metal Gear series discussed the connections between childhood depression and themes in the game. “I felt lonely when I was talking to my friends because they couldn’t understand, I wanted to go home … and turn on the lights because I was frightened.”
Despite his intentions sounding a little vague, it remains promising that a sequel could be on the way.
