Kojima Productions has released a new image of the studio’s mascot Ludens to website GameSpot, partially revealing the face of the character. As some speculated, the skull is some kind of mask, and a human face is hidden behind it.
It also contains the tagline ‘I’ll keep coming’, but other than that the studio encourages us to imagine freely.
When Ludens was first revealed, producer Ken Imaizumi apparently told Gamespot: “This is not an image of the game which we are working on.” About today’s image he said: “This is not a screenshot.”
In other news, Kojima Productions finally opened an official Twitter account, so be sure to follow them.
Hello everyone, this is the official account of game developer Kojima Productions. Stay tuned for all our official information!
The official Twitter account explained the meaning of the name Ludens.
As you might know, Ludens’ name comes from “Homo Ludens” or Playing Man, and that’s what we are all about. Like Hideo Kojima said: “Games are fun to play, but they’re even more fun to make!”
Kojima elaborated: “The icon of Kojima Productions is LUDENS (those who play) who delivers NEW PLAY in NEW FUTURE with the use of cutting edge equipment, technology & frontier spirit. Western & Eastern, past & future, destruction & frontier, adventure & creation, real & fake, all these images got into fusion.”
