This man claims to be Joakim Mogren of Moby Dick Studios

15 Mar

Do you remember The Phantom Pain, the mysterious game presented last December at Spike Video Game Awards, credited to a Swedish developer known as Moby Dick Studio? Yes, no, who cares? Watch this trailer.

Ok, now that you’re “in line” we can tell you that also the developer studio is kinda mysterious, and nobody ever hear about it before. That’s why a lot of people is speculating about The Phantom Pain as a new Metal Gear Solid title. Why? Because the main character resemble to Snake or because Kojima has tweeted a couple of rendered stuff in Fox Engine (the graphic engine from Metal Gear) that then we discovered being present in the above trailer (like the nurses) or because a couple of guys (one of them was Kyle Cooper, who previously designed title sequences for Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3) were spotted at a Konami private party wearing Phantom Pain t-shirts.

But the thing that the most connect The Phantom Pain to MGS is the name of the CEO of this Moby Dick Studio: Joakim Mogren. Apart from sounding like a very fake name, the word Joakim is an anagram for Kojima

But this is all old stuff. The real news is that Geoff Keighley, journalist for GGTV, has interviewed this Joakim guy. Here is the revealing tweet:

But this is not enough, watch the video interview.

Ok, now we know for sure that this guy is an idiot (or a genius?), that the game runs on Fox Engine, and that probably we all have more details later this month. Stay tuned.
