Life, well particularly work, has been very busy these past 4 weeks. In September I attended Tokyo Game Show to present Tengami, the game I am working on, at Sense of Wonder Night. Just a week later I traveled to Culver City in the US to present Tengami at IndieCade, an independent game’s festival. I had a great time, but the constant on the road life-style left me with no time to report back to you earlier.
As most of you probably already know by now, FromSoftware did not make any Tenchu related announcements at the TokyoGameShow. I did some digging, asking my friends at Acquire and other friends in the Japanese game industry, if they had heard anything about a Tenchu game being in development. From what I have heard it appears that FromSoftware are currently not working on a new Tenchu game. Of course a new Tenchu game might be FromSoftware’s best kept secret at this point, but I would not get my hopes up. I wish I had better news for you, guess we just need to keep waiting and enjoy the other games out there. On Twitter a lot of people mentioned ‘Mark of the Ninja’ as a good 2D stealth game on XBLA. I have not had the chance to play it myself though.
