Kojima Describes the Decima Engine Using a Space Race Metaphor

Hideo Kojima revealed Death Stranding’s engine earlier this month during a PlayStation experience panel, and he has worked with Guerrilla Games in order to reform the Decima Engine.

In a series of tweets, Kojima describes the process of how he came to decide on using Guerrilla’s Decima Engine using the Space Race as a metaphor.

“The space development competition has been stagnated after the Cold War. Due to the steep rise in price of space development cost, the investment for the earth has been strengthened and they gave up on the space shuttle program.

“Meanwhile I who wants to proceed myself to the moon, met the guerrilla whose plan was to go to the mars. We decided to make the rocket by reforming their engine. And by doing so it enables us to go to the mars but even to the jupiter.”

Kojima also tweeted out some amazing images of the meeting room of Kojima Productions that was reproduced by the Decima engine. The quality is outstanding, so much so they look like he literally just wheeled in a tank and took a photo.
