Thatgamecompany’s next game may be F2P

14 Mar

Jenova Chen, co-founder of indie developer Thatgamecompany (you know, the one that made Journey), has been interviewed by Joystiq’s Jordan Mallory.

Now that Chen’s studio is no longer in an exclusive contract with Sony (and this is a very good news), they’re thinking about their next project. Should the game go free to play (with the usual microtransactions), though, Chen says it won’t be like the vast majority of free-to-play games he’s tried, which he says encourage microtransactions by annoying and frustrating the player.

“I would rather see a game where you play to feel happier, and to make other people like you, and the make the people you care about happy. That’s something I’ve never seen in a [free-to-play] game.”

Let’s see what the old Jenova will do! Stay tuned!
