Flower – A Chat with Creative Director Jenova Chen

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Jan 27, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

On Friday, I sat down with Flower creative director Jenova Chen of thatgamecompany to talk about his studio’s upcoming game for PS3 available on PSN February 12. As you’ll see, Jenova’s quite a talented and intelligent guy — a film student and first-generation graduate of USC’s video-game design program, you can tell just how passionate he is about games and the emotions they bring out.

Jenova provides some great insight into the basics of Flower, the concept of game genres (and if Flower is creating a new relaxing style of gaming) and the inspiration behind the game’s extraordinary beauty. Plus, he drops a few hints about custom soundtracks, a secret ending and more. Take a look…

Flow is just awful, Flower needs a demo, I wouldn’t buy it even for 1 dollar without trying it out first…
