Score Studios and The Last Guardian


I remember a couple of years ago, at one of my last PauseTalk events, that I was asking my buddy James Kay — who runs the Tokyo-based Score Studios — what he was up to at the time, and that he hinted that the studio was working on something that I’d consider to be a pretty big deal, but that he couldn’t say more. Well, with the long-awaited release of The Last Guardian this past week, now we know. Score Studios created the engine and tools that were used for the game, which is indeed a pretty awesome bit of news for Score. I’m so happy and proud for what they’ve accomplished, and can’t wait to experience the game.
