14th Entertainment Division Critiques
I want to judge the hottest works of today
There were a large number of fresh moving image works. There were also many website and play equipment works that were rather unique. However, the jury felt that the works submitted to the genre of game all lacks something.
The key areas of the works failed to offer anything new--most were part of a series or remakes of existing works. I understand that this is a structural aspect of the industry, but the purpose of the Media Arts Festival is to look for such new qualities.
I hope that people will make much more ambitious attempts in the future. It is the strong wish of the screening committee to introduce such works to the world.I was also upset that there were only a few SNS game entries. For game genre, the current entry system is difficult. That might be one reason. But I will contact my friends and others and will work to promote the best entries of the year.
