Gary Napper one of the great game designers of our time has left Sony UK two months ago to pursue his gaming career to even new heights and has started a new job as Game Director at Supermassive games in Guildford and will be working on VR technologies.
What could this mean for the future of Supermassive games? Considering the highlights of Mr.Napper’s career to date it could mean an awful lot as he helped breath life into one of the scariest horror games to date known as Alien: Isolation and considering he is going to be working with virtual reality technology, its probably safe to say he will be putting people into the hospital from heart attacks in the near future.
But it also brings out the question of why he is leaving Sony UK and honestly it is most likely to further his own career goals as a game designer. Supermassive games has been responsible for Until Dawn which has taken the Sony console world by storm for its amazing story telling as well as its overall design and with him signing onto a company such as Supermassive games we can honestly only expect good things to come from this.
Much like how when Hideo Kojima left Konami for Sony we all know only good things will come from it.
As a fan of Gary Nappers work and horror games in general I look forward to see what new things Gary Napper will be bringing to the party to drive people insane and let the beads of sweat drop in fear from his future works as he leads a team to help develop and create new ways to scare people. We can only imagine what evil’s he will create while working at Supermassive games and with the way things are going he may create the future successor to the Silent Hill style of games because we all know Konami will never have a good solid plan in horror genre games.But whatever the future holds we hope Gary Napper will continue to shine as one of the great game developers of our time and continue to make really amazing games and I hope that he continues to create some amazing triple A titles that will continue to blow the minds off everyone who plays his games. As well as those who get to watch people playing his games from let’s plays online.
