Tetsuya Mizuguchi discusses his vision for video games, including the recent return of Rez.

If you’re a fan of Japan, and games, and Japanese games, you should certainly check out the toco toco tv YouTube series. Anne Ferrero’s series of short documentaries explores the work of Japanese artists and creators, and concludes its first season with an episode focussed on Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of Rez, Space Channel 5, Lumines, and Child of Eden.

The toco toco series explores all aspects of the Japanese creative arts, but of particular interest to video game fans are episodes featuring Professor Sakamoto, Sweary65, SUDA51 and Yoko Taro.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
