Fumito Ueda’s game was so shocking and such a trigger for him who had only one goal in mind: to create games of the same caliber. Ico’s cryptic and mysterious adventure has awakened in him the memories of his childhood. From an early age, Hidetaka Miyazaki was interested in medieval and fictional stories. Arthurian fairy tales and other English literature distinguish his days, but his mastery of Shakespeare’s language is far from perfect. While some of his excerpts turn out to be incomprehensible, he prefers to interpret in his own way thanks to his overflowing imagination. From this narrative confusion and this curiosity will be born the Touch of Miyazaki. Once his resignation was confirmed, he applied to several development studios. It was From Software that recruited him, despite his weak video game culture. He quickly rose through the ranks thanks to his talent and involvement, until the day his studio entrusted him with a project doomed to failure: Demons Souls. Even if success is not immediately on the date with this game, it will serve as the basis for something bigger.
