Suda 51 says sexuality in games a touchy subject
Lollipop Chainsaw, No More Heroes designer says criticism can follow anything with artistic value.
Grasshopper Manufacture designer Suda 51 has spoken out in response to criticisms regarding how some of his games portray female characters.
"I think in a way when you get criticism, that means people are paying attention to your work. Any kind of artistic value, anything you create, there's always some kind of criticism behind it," Suda said. "Which means we're making an impression and an impact."
"So I think we'll stay with what we're thinking and just keep going with that way of thinking…And when I say that, sexuality is a touchy subject," he added. "We don't want to make people offended, but we're trying to create something that makes people laugh a bit because we're [dealing with] that topic."
In Lollipop Chainsaw, 18-year-old protagonist Juliet lays waste to zombies with a chainsaw while wearing a cheerleading outfit. And in No More Heroes, Sylvia motivates the player by offering sex as a reward for in-game accomplishments.
Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture are currently working on Killer Is Dead, due for release later this summer on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
