From Sapiens to Ludens.

Kojima Productions has arrived. The new independent studio, headed by Hideo Kojima, will be “developing products that will push the boundaries in innovation and ignite consumer interest world.”

Hideo Kojima also appeared with Andrew House from Sony Computer Entertainment to announce a partnership working to create a PlayStation exclusive title. While little is known of this project, a new Kojima Productions website has gone live. The site offers a humble prose of human creativity and our evolutionary strength – the desire to play. The following is displayed on the site, followed by a list of career opportunities.

We are Homo Ludens (Those who play).

From the moment we enter this world, we instinctively invent ways to have “fun,”and share our inventions with those around us. We are not asked to do this, nor do we need reasons to create. It is simply who we are.

We find one another and compete with one another. We laugh together and cry together; all while playing together. Our experiences bind us and liberate us. To share our most valuable experiences, we create stories, invent tools, and evolve the art of play. Play has been our ally since the dawn of civilization.

“Playing” is not simply a pastime, it is the primordial basis of imagination and creation. Truth be told, Homo Ludens (Those who Play) are simultaneously Homo Faber (Those who Create).

Even if the earth were stripped of life and reduced to a a barren wasteland, our imagination and desire to create would survive – beyond survival, it would provide hope that flowers may one day bloom again. Through the invention of play, our new evolution awaits.
