Why new Technology Keeps me Coming Back to Rez (Rez Infinite)

Description
Being ahead of its time is not necessarily a compliment — it tests one’s patience. In the case of Rez, it took 15 years for the game to finally be playable in VR, the way it was originally meant to be played. And even along the way there was Rez HD.  What is it that keeps Mizuguchi coming back to Rez?  Where will Rez/Rez Infinite go from here?
In his talk, Mizuguchi shares how the emergence of new technologies have opened up opportunities to revisit his now life-work, Rez, and extend the experience to a new audience each time — while the music and visuals have largely remained unchanged.  He also talks about how he envisioned enhancing the game experience further by developing a full-body Synesthesia Suit to make the player not just see and hear but feel the game. With the increasing speed of today’s technological advancements, Mizuguchi believes in the endless possibilities of not just VR, but AR and MR to create a fully immersive interactive experience we once thought was only possible in the future.
Take Away
How a single concept/game idea has stood the test of time (that it’s possible!) and what makes it timeless.  
Audience Addressed: Game designers, Indie developers
