My feelings towards Game Developing ―――

We are dazzled by recent technology.

Technology is rapidly advancing, especially the prodigious diversity and evolution.

Because there is diversity, the answers to the question “What can we do?” are increasing in width and in geometric progression.

We need all kinds of technical innovations to deal with it.
We will improve the skills we need for the new era and also, we are mentally prepared to try a bunch of things.

The most important thing is to continue thinking “How game users play with enjoyment?”

We will continue developing games and make sure not to forget the original intention.
