Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of Rez and Child of Eden, is taking some time off from the day to day crunch of blowing our minds with pretty pictures and mesmerizing music, Q Entertainment's Nobuhiko Shimizu confirmed to Eurogamer in an interview. "Right now, Mizuguchi does not produce the games," he said.
"He's now more of a spokesperson. He's not developing stuff right now," Shimizu explained. Mizuguchi apparently stepped away from the heavy lifting at the company he co-founded after the release of 2011's Child of Eden. He's now focusing on academic work while the rest of Q continues to do what it does. The current directive? Combining music games with card-battle games, according to Shimizu.
