imageTetsuya Mizuguchi, the creator of Rez and more recently the Lumines series, left Q Entertainment. Mizuguchi and other ex-Sega staff opened Q Entertainment in 2003 and released Lumines for PSP a year later.

 

Mizuguchi is now a professor in Keio University’s graduate media design program. CEO Shuji Utsumi added Mizuguchi will also continue to support Q Entertainment as an advisor, but there are no concrete plans with Mizuguchi taking part in any games or synthesia projects.

 

Q Entertainment’s most recent game is a social romance game called SHINee My Love which features the Korean R&B group. They also released Guardian Hearts Online for PlayStation Vita.

    That’s actually really cool. His students are in for a real treat.

    Sad to hear this. I would’ve loved another Rez or Space Channel 5

    Oh man, I hope this doesnt mean theres no more lumines. Loved the vita version, despite it lacking some great features from the psp version.

    I’ll be disappointed if he doesn’t teach his students about creation and the state of art.

    I wish those classes would play out as trippy as his work, media design could do with a bunch of newcomers who get stoned and vibrate in place to electronic music.
