“I’m Not a Prophet.” Said Hideo Kojima, dreamer of Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid. But where do these visions come from?
Hideo Kojima responded to recurring comments that amaze at how the Master predicted our real-world events in Death Stranding. Yes, we are thinking about the epidemic. Ever since the COVID-19 epidemic broke free and virtually shut down the entire world, Death Stranding players have consistently mentioned the terrifying similarities between their game and reality. The central theme of the game is how people break away from each other and from their reality outside. However, Kojima said anyone could have predicted these events.
In his Instagram post, Kojima said he always reads the latest news, making it easy for him to see the signs and, with his imagination play with the idea of what comes next. He further explained that when reading articles about science and technology, he often thinks about how these things can change lives, and then draws his games on these thoughts.
“ It’s not something difficult. In my case, it’s not a prediction, but simply a fantasy based on science and speculation. And as it turns out, I just had a good chance of getting it right. I’m just fantasizing by anticipating the future of entertainment. I’m not a prophet.”
Kojima went on to explain how he sees signs of the future:
“ Even if certain studies have not yet been realized, there is much research that already has a strong grasp on necessary concepts. Previously, I was invited to visit a certain company’s research lab, and I felt like I was in a world of sci-fi. Many ‘seeds’ (signs) of the future can be found worldwide, if you look for them closely. I use these ‘seeds’ as a base and give them a drive, a boost. For this, you need a story writer’s imagination.”
So here is Kojima, who is not a prophet but a thinker!
